Police arrested two teenage students after the theft of a bag belonging to a German couple who arrived here on a cruise ship earlier this week.
The German husband and wife had gone swimming in the sea at Vigie, leaving a bag containing their belongings nearby.
The bag contained an iPhone 14 Pro Max, spectacles, the elderly couple’s clothing, and other items.
Reports indicate that when the couple came out of the water at about 1:45 pm on Wednesday and discovered the bag was missing, they raised the alarm, and police got on the case.
As a result, law enforcement officers arrested a suspect, who led them to another student who had already boarded a bus.
According to the reports, that student had the visitors’ bag in his possession.
Officers held both students, aged sixteen and seventeen, summoned their parents, and returned the stolen bag to the German visitors.
It was not immediately clear whether charges were laid.
