Bandits caught on camera in Jacmel

Young bandits were caught on camera as they attempted to break into a bar at Jacmel, the owner of the business establishment, Charles Jean, has said.

Jean disclosed that he left his business place after midnight on Tuesday and returned the following day at about 2:30 pm when he noticed the break in attempt.

“They broke all the trimming around the door – you could see pry marks on the door,” the businessman told reporters.

He said the criminals interfered with his cameras, breaking one of the devices in an apparent attempt to shift it around.

According to Jean, the persons were not able to enter the bar but managed to do some damage.

He explained that the bandits who attempted the break in were captured on surveillance video.

“Right now I want to appeal to the public in helping me to identify these persons,” Jean stated.

He explained that he summoned the police and later presented them with a copy of the video footage, telling the law enforcers that he would also give the media access to the recording.

“In the surveillance video you see three of them and there is a fourth person walking on the road – that person never entered the premises, but must have been their lookout,” Jean observed.

He said  he opened his business place on Easter Sunday.

“It is very frustrating when you hustle – I mean I invested so much money in the place and persons have targetted it so early in the life of the business. I mean honestly that is discouraging and I really need these persons to be apprehended,” Jean declared.

He said although the criminals never entered the business place, had they done so he would have been wiped out.

“Having spent so much money to start the business and to  experience that loss so early, it would obviously put you back – and young boys at that,” Jean said.

        There is a difference between knowing someone and knowing of someone. Very important distinction.

    I am ashamed to even think that way but
    SHARIA LAW might help in some cases. Whip their tails or cut off their hands. Nuff said.

    I try hard to ignore asinine comments. Anonymous May 4, 2017 at 5:18 pm, you have to be a congenital idiot with a severe learning disability. Why don’t you stop the earth and jump off, the world would be a better place without you. My empathy goes to the small business owner who work so hard and invest so much to make a decent living, then to have these lazy, worthless miscreants to come and disrupt and destroy what you have work so hard to build. Shame them and jail them. Make their punishment a deterrent for other would-be criminals.
