Burglars break into Shek O compound owned by Stanley Ho wife

Burglars broke into a luxury home along Shek O Headland Road on Thursday morning, carting away expensive watches and other valuables.

The compound, known in the area as “the secret village of the rich”, is owned by businesswoman and philanthropist Ina Chan, where at least eight luxury watches were stolen.

Police said the thieves climbed on scaffoldings at a house that is being renovated next door to gain entry into Chan’s property, Headline Daily reports.

Chan, the third wife of Macau casino king Stanley Ho, bought the UNIR Garden in 2006 for HK$60 million, and later transformed it into four three-storey houses.

One of the houses was rented out in 2013 for HK$200,000 a month.

The tenant is a foreigner, who is on a business trip. The maid discovered the burglary when she returned home Thursday morning and found it a mess.

An initial check showed that around eight to 10 luxury watches had been stolen.
