Former National Security Minister, Doctor Keith Mondesir, has asserted that a recent burglary at police departments housed in the Lamar building on Bridge Street, Castries, is a sign that criminals are losing respect for law enforcement officers.
“I would take the matter very seriously,” Mondesir said in an interview with St Lucia Times.
He said were he currently the Minister responsible for National Security, he would ensure that the culprits are caught to find out what was their motive.
“It could be a lot deeper than a simple break-in,” Mondesir asserted.
Police have described the break in as “embarrassing” but put the matter down to a sign of the times and the brazen attitude of criminals.
