Police have arrested a fourth man in connection with Monday morning’s break-in at the La Fargue, Choiseul outlet of Massy Stores Supermarket.
The latest detainee is suspected of having aided and abetted the break-in, during which bandits smashed their way into the outlet by reversing a Suzuki Escudo into the entrance.
The bandits had earlier held up a security guard.
Once inside the supermarket, the intruders stole several items, tied a Bank of Saint Lucia ATM to their vehicle, and, after several attempts, dislodged and escaped with it.
Police found the Suzuki Escudo down a precipice at Victoria, Choiseul.
About one hour after the 2:00 a.m. break-in, investigators caught three suspects driving a Suzuki Swift in Soufriere.
Law enforcement officials expect to charge the trio shortly.
Meanwhile, another suspect, believed to have been the driver of the Suzuki Escudo, is still at large.
