Thieves broke into a building at Odsan, triggering an alarm and a response from Protector Security System, the police have reported.
Assistant Police Commissioner Responsible for Crime and Intelligence, Wayne Charlery, told St Lucia Times that the initial report was made to the police about 2:40 .am Friday.
He explained that the Supervisor of the Security Company responded to an alarm going off at the Frank B. Armstrong building.
Charlery said that according to the information given, the Supervisor saw a number of persons exiting the back window, which was broken.
“Some of these persons exiting that window may have injured themselves on the broken glass,” Charlery stated.
“Currently our investigations are continuing and owners of the establishment are assessing the number of items taken,” the senior police official disclosed.
He said some of the stolen items were recovered in nearby bushes.
“However, it is very early in the investigation and we will update the media as we go along,” Charlery stated.
He commended the supervisor who responded so quickly, adding that most of the items were not carried away by the thieves.
There have been reports that shots were fired at the intruders.
