Bandits target Saint Lucia Mortgage Finance Company

Bandits target Saint Lucia Mortgage Finance Company

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.

    According to the article, the break-in occurred “some time between last night and early this morning…” and that “The bandits are reported to have somehow cut electricity to the building… ”

    A couple of things, firstly:
    — That was not “a professional job” in any way at all. The perpetrators were nothing more than laughable two-bit amateurs that watch too much American TV. They obviously missed the part about financial not storing any semblance of cash on site, and cash that in the vault is typically enough chump change to cover their daily float, the real cheese is never on site, and there’s a rigid limit as to what can be kept in the vault overnight. According to the article, the perpetrators “ransacked” the place. What they realistically expect to find? Again, watching too much American trash TV. Congratulations. Bravo. They probably managed to boost a password-locked computer, a coffee maker, a fax machine, and the receptionist’s juice glass.

    Secondly:
    The loss prevention officer or security consultant for Saint Lucia Mortgage Finance Company Limited should have their backside proverbially sliced/diced and handed to them on a platter. Why would they cheap out on their alarm system and not simply have installed a system with gel-cell power back-up, instant activated motions and door/window contacts, and a redundant external dial-out system that not only uses a landline but also has an auto back-up uplink that accesses a cellular network. One could go on, but it’s up to the company to re-examine their corporate risk management plan for themselves.
