An Austrian man who made Barbados his home 33 years ago said he has been forced to flee his million-dollar house after being constantly hit by thieves for the past two years.
Friedrich Trausnitzer, 74, who lived in an affluent and secluded St James neighbourhood, told the Sunday Sun thieves were invading his home almost daily stealing thousands of dollars, as well as household items.
Frustrated and feeling as if he was getting no assistance from the police, the man, who lived alone, moved out of his house two weeks ago, taking his two dogs, because he feared for his life. He is renting an apartment for $1 600 a month and has posted a sign at his former home declaring he has no money.
Trausnitzer is planning to put his house up for sale and possibly move back to Austria. (MB)
