Bandits break into jewelry store

Bandits broke into a jewelry store on High Street overnight.

Manager, Franklin John, said he discovered the break in this morning when he showed up for work.

franklin-johnJohn disclosed that the bandits cut four padlocks on the Citizen’s Jewelry store.

Thereafter they smashed a glass to gain entry.

John explained that nothing major was missing.

He expressed the view that the robbery was done in a hurry, with the intruders grabbing whatever they could have laid their hands on as quickly as possible.

John suspects that the robbery was the work of young men, some of whom may not have completed schooling and want a quick buck.

He said he wanted to send a strong warning to them to desist from their criminal actions.

Several businesses in Castries have been similarly targeted in the past few days.

An attempt by three men this week to rob another jewelry store in the capital was foiled after a police officer who happened to be nearby heard a commotion and intervened.

Two of the bandits were immediately arrested.

Criminals on Sunday smashed their way into Happy Connex – a mobile telephone store on the ground floor of the Richard Frederick building, after using a hacksaw to cut padlocks.

They made off with more than ten thousand dollars in cash, mobile telephones and accessories.

The break in was caught on tape.
