Persons described as ‘evil’ criminals broke into the Marchand Community Centre during the early hours of Monday morning.
An individual familiar with the case told St Lucia Times that the persons responsible had to be evil because of what they did.
According to information, the intruders not only broke into the building and stole a number of items, but also left their calling card in the form of spray paint on the walls.
It was reported that much of what they could not take, they destroyed.
St Lucia Times was informed that food supplies meant for the after school programme were deliberately contaminated.
The criminals are said to have poured detergent into sugar and flour that was stored in the building, rendering the food items unfit for consumption.
They are also said to have mixed sugar and rice together.
An official who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that the latest break in was not the first at the Marchand Community Centre.
It is suspected that the crimes have been committed by a gang of individuals.
“I am appalled at the scale of the vandalism,” the official told St Lucia Times, adding “These are just evil people.”
“What they could not carry, they destroyed,” the official stated.
An assessment of exactly what was taken is still being made.
The matter is currently being investigated by the police.
