Thieves Steal Headlights, Battery From Carielle Resident’s Car


Thieves, wearing hoodies and dressed in black, disabled a car alarm and made off with the vehicle’s headlights and battery early Thursday morning in Carielle, Castries.

A neighbour alerted the owner, Thelma Lord, to the theft.

Lord said she later learned that someone in the neighbourhood had seen two men after 3:00 am who had parked a black Tiida a short distance away from her 2013 Suzuki Swift.

She told St. Lucia Times the men apparently had already entered her vehicle and were carrying the stolen items.

Lord said based on the information she received, one of the men was slim while the other was muscular.

She told the police, posted the information online, and received several leads regarding the black Tiida.

Lord said she learned that in the past, different CCTV cameras had recorded the two men who had stolen parts from her car.

The Carielle resident recalled becoming suspicious before the theft when a motorcyclist rode ahead and kept looking at her when she parked her Suzuki in the parking lot and left.

“So I suspect this was a coordinated effort, and these people are not working alone. I was even led to believe that the criminals have their WhatsApp group. They monitor us,” Lord told St. Lucia Times.

She appealed to citizens not to facilitate criminals by buying stolen items.

“Why would you want to buy headlights from an individual? Evidently there is a market for it because when I inquired about the price of one, it was $1,800,” Lord stated.

She warned citizens to be on guard and spread the word if they observe a suspicious black Tiida in their neighbourhood.

Lord said she learned that car thieves target vehicles like her Suzuki Swift.

“Normally, they strip the cars, but God was with me and they just went with the headlamps and the battery, which is sad because they have set me back,” the Carielle resident explained.

  1. To the person who wants to know about obeah don’t waste your breath and your hard earn money these so-called obeah making people are criminals themselves on another level?

  2. At this point these obeah people should set up a known business, with all these thefts they’d be working a regular 9-5

  3. @Solutions Oriented
    You don’t need any obeah and it doesn’t work anyway. Just hocus-pocus that works on the psyche of believers. What you need are steady hands, reasonable eyesight and a desire to work for public good. You know what I mean?
    Miss Lord has given some good clues. I hope the police can run with them and find those parasites. Be strong Miss Lord.

    Those parasites

  4. @Solutions, so you are saying that you would risk your soul and mental health for material objects that could easily become worthless ? Why do we make jokes about witchcraft like it’s meaningless.

  5. Refrain from obeah my people….God is in control. Besides, these evil rituals bring curses upon your children and grandchildren!

  6. @Oh Really. God is the alpha and the omega. Everything created is as as result of God’s will. Even evil and yes obeah. So using the tools God made available.

  7. Those thieves refuse to pick up a job but God is not sleeping as they will be caught … Trust me they will be caught so is best they bring back the head lamps and the battery

  8. Reading this I now realise why only very few vehicles on this island have a full set of working lights. I just thought it was fashionable to have only one tail light or one headlight working
