Bandits target house of worship

Bandits on Thursday targeted the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at Cedar’s Road, Sunbilt in Castries.

According to an eyewitness, one man was seen attempting to break into the place of worship at around 4 pm, using a metal rod to force a side door open.

The eyewitness said  he challenged the the intruder  after he had managed to pry one side of the double door from its hinges and the man ran away empty handed, leaving the metal rod behind.

Behind the door was a security grill with padlocks.

The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at Cedar’s Road has been broken into in the past when intruders stole equipment belonging to the place of worship.

Additional security measures have since been put in place.

    The devil made him do it lol… Governments should tax those mega-businesses/churches anyway.
    But it’s rather sad to see the desperation that can come from drug addiction and poverty.

    They are not a mega business my friend. Do you know anything about the witnesses. All of them are members of society and they have secular jobs and they also come from different walks of life, they face the same problems as everyone else. Their work of preaching is supported by volunteer contributions not tithe. So therefore they are in no way a business.

    That man was probably a tax collector. Churches make huge sums of money and people in their congregation are dying of hunger. Also, some of their members are in need of medical assistance and they hardly assist. Such institutions have millions of dollars in the bank and they have no interest in assisting those in need. Churches need to be audited and taxed.
