‘Well dressed’ young men calmly stole a vehicle from Sans Souci Saturday morning about 1.05 am, an eyewitness says.
The eyewitness, who spoke to St Lucia Times on condition of anonymity, said the thieves were ‘regular young men’ who were ‘ well dressed’.
The Mitsubishi Sportero pickup was found a few hours later overturned on the road to Monchy.
According to information obtained by St Lucia Times, four youths were involved in the theft.
The eyewitness said one of them was dressed in white with a backpack on his back.
“They were well groomed – no mask.”
The eyewitness suspects that the thieves had access to a key for the vehicle.
Police were alerted to the theft and were able to identify the Sportero after residents in the North of the Island reported the crash.
The pickup reportedly did not have an alarm.
Just this week bandits partially stripped a vehicle that was parked on the Morne Du Don road.
The flabbergasted owner told St Lucia Times that he was in a quandary to determine how the thieves were able to bypass a fairly sophisticated alarm system and not be seen by neighbours and passers-by.
