Masked Bandits Target Two Castries Schools

On Thursday night, masked bandits targetted the Castries Comprehensive Secondary and the nearby Sir Ira Simmons Secondary schools.

The intruders escaped with computers and other items from one of the educational institutions.

According to multiple sources, around 11:20 pm on Thursday, a skeleton staff at the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School (CCSS) was making last-minute preparations for graduation the next day.

The sources revealed that’s when a ‘petrified’ security guard brought news that two masked men had entered the school compound.

One of the men had a firearm and ‘cranked it’ one source revealed.

CCTV camera footage revealed that the men entered one of the classrooms.

But it appeared that the bandits left without taking anything of value.

Armed police responded after receiving a distress call, but the intruders had apparently left after about fifteen minutes while CCSS staff were hiding.

That same night, bandits also targetted Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School near the CCSS.

“The same guys ransacked the place, all the offices, the IT lab – they stole so many things there,” an individual familiar with the incident told St Lucia Times.

However, reports indicate that while at least two bandits were involved in the CCSS incident, four of them entered the Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School compound.

They broke into four rooms at the learning institution and stole computers, electronic tablets, and other items.

Police are investigating the incident.

  1. There will always be crime because at this point…the CCTV footage should havd been all over so that the public and students could assist in recognizing those sumbags.

  2. And yet ‘Pierre ‘,to be blame.
    There are more than sixty millions of false gods know and countless churches and differents bibles,but not all are God and does not practices what it pages say :
    The real Bible
    In the begining was the Word,and the Word was with God,and the Word was God. He was with God from the begining.
    Through him all things were made ; whithout him nothing was made that has been made.
    In him was life,and that life (Jesus)was the ligth of men.
    The light shines in the darkness,but the darkness has not understood it.
    Corruption and evils began in churches where the Holy Sprit does not dwells.
    By invoking evils sprit in the land.
    When you go to a church and listen to the preacher,listen carefully,if the doctrine is not based on the true facts of the Word of GOD,the Creator from the begining,
    The Bible has to refer to the God of Israël of heaven and earth….
    If it is not based on these, Come out from them.
    The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.

    Do you remember the two Jimmys ?
    Who demand the people to drink the poisson ?
    It it all because they put their trust in them and did not rely on the Holy One of Israël…
    The surnammi that hit the coast ot India and Indonésie,as the results of invoking evils sprit god allah, what happend,the waters englouti them,just as when the sea englouti Pharaoh’s war men….

    Only be careful,and watch ourselves closely so that we do not forget the things our eyes have seen of let them slip from our hearts as long as we live.
    From heaven he made us hear his voice to discipline us.
    On earth he showed us his great 🔥 fire and we heard his words from out of the 🔥 fire.

    Acknowledge and take it to heart ❤️ this day that the LORD is God in heaven and obove and on the earth below.
    There is no other. Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today,so that it may go well with us and our children after us and that we may live long in the LORD our GOD gives us for all time.
    For the LORD will punish the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me ❗
    But showing ❤️to a thousand generations of those who ❤️me and keep my commandements ❗

  4. The educational faculties keep asking for security at schools. What did they give them so far. Now when a report may come out and say that the government regardless of which party is blatantly ignoring the plague that warrant yesterday attention they will then jump on all media platform to say it is false accusations. Could this be orchestrated by the computer supplier so the government must buy from them. Because in my opinion it takes a complete worthless shit heads to go steal from an educational institutions. It could also validate the reason why our IQ rating is so low because of these fleas and thicks that exist amongst us.

  5. When bad behaviour is rewarded by governments….when they show that they support those who threaten, insult, bully, and personally attack others especially women in the name of politics how can crime be abated. Crime pays for some, so others will jump on the bandwagon. This government has failed us.

  6. Perhaps they needed the computers to do research on prospective colleges or universities in the USA where they intend to apply for admission in 2023. Or perhaps they needed to do research on the impact of the Ukranian war on the poorer nations of the world. Then again, they might have just wanted a personal device to watch porn, or to simply earn some dirty money the criminal-minded way! I doubt their actions had anything to do with either of the first two suggestions! What do you think?

  7. Congratulations to all the graduates’ but consider this a sign that there is no future on this Island. Those who can escape should do so this country is going to hell in a hurry.

  8. 18 students from CCSS weren’t allowed to graduate for various reasons. That’s where the investigations should begin.

    • What investigation? Every student who enters a school in St Lucia knows that he or she must conduct themselves with dignity during their stay at the school. Some schools have a criteria embedded in their rules that should be followed for one to graduate from the institution. Too often we want to condone all the ills of society, no wonder we are in such a sorry state today.

      • I think the contributor (Skye) was only trying to say that the students who did not graduate may have a motive to rob the school/s… that is, to get back at the authorities for not allowing them to graduate … And that investigations into the burglars should consider these former students.

  9. These Scumbags!!! when they are not out there shooting each other they are robbing the kids they need to put them to rest for good.
