Saint Lucia police are investigating a break in at the Gros Islet Secondary School, which is suspected to have taken place Sunday morning, law enforcement officials have confirmed.
An assessment of what was actually taken by the intruders is currently underway, St Lucia Times was informed.
It was not immediately clear how the intruders gained entry to the school, which is provided with security personnel, and entered the office of the Vice Principal and other areas of the learning institution, an official disclosed.
One report suggests that the school’s computers were untouched.
Just last month 25 school security guards were officially sworn in as Special Police Constables by Police Commissioner, Severin Moncherry.
At the time Deputy Permanent Secretary in the Department Of Education, Innovation and Gender Relations, Michelle Charles, explained that school security has become a source of major concern.
She noted that there have been a number of thefts at schools and some security officers have been ‘critically injured’ on the job.
