Bandits targetted Saint Lucia Mortgage Finance Company Limited at the corner of Brazil and Laborie Streets some time between last night and early this morning, ransacking the place in an apparent futile search for cash, the Times has been informed.
“It was a professional job,” a source told the Times.
According to the source, the criminals gained access to the company’s offices via the back of the building.
The bandits are reported to have somehow cut electricity to the building and covered security cameras with plastic bags.
As an added measure, the intruders are also said to have ripped loud speakers off the building so that the speakers would not sound an alarm indicating forced entry.
Once inside, the bandits ransacked the place.
However, the Times was informed that no money is kept in the building.
The intruders apparently left empty handed.
But the mess they created forced the closure of the Saint Lucia Mortgage Finance Company Limited branch on Brazil and Laborie Streets for today, to facilitate a clean up of the premises.
Police are investigating the break in.
