Security officers employed at the main branch of S&S the Price Busters on Micoud Street, Castries were robbed this morning while on their way to the bank with an undisclosed sum of money, reports say.
Initial reports suggest that the two security officers were walking to a vehicle with the cash in hand when they were accosted by two robbers.
The circumstances surrounding the incident were not immediately clear. The robbers are reported to have sped off in a waiting vehicle.
One source told St Lucia Times that the guards were on their way to the bank to change money for the day’s float when the robbery occurred shortly before 8 o’clock.
Nobody was injured in the robbery.
S&S says a statement on the heist will be issued later.
Police are currently investigating the incident.
