Saint Lucia police have recovered a bag that was stolen from two Canadian visitors Saturday in Castries.
A law enforcement official told St Lucia Times that the bag was discovered minus the cash it contained.
However the official said other items such as credit and debit cards, a driver’s license and a health card were inside.
No details were immediately available in regard to the circumstances that led to the recovery of the stolen item.
But it was disclosed that the bag was found shortly after it was snatched from the Canadian visitors.
The bag belonged to Carol Goss.
She and her husband, David, both in their sixties, were walking in the Sans Souci area when a ‘decently dressed’ young man attacked from behind, grabbed the bag and fled.
Carol sustained some scratches as a result of the incident.
The husband told St Lucia Times that they were visiting this country for the first time and had already spent a week in Soufriere when the robbery took place.
The couple had come down to Castries to spend some time in the City.
