A phone thief who pretended to be a parent interested in enrolling his children in the Salvation Army preschool in Castries, was arrested Thursday by the police, it has been reported.

A Salvation Army official told St Lucia Times that the thief irately proclaimed that the phone was his when he was arrested.

However, the official said when the device was turned on, it showed a photo of the husband of the real owner.

According to information, the man showed up at the preschool and inquired about enrolling his child.

After being given information about the enrollment process, he asked to see the classrooms, St Lucia Times was informed.

It was reported that the secretary showed him to the classrooms.

While the secretary lagged a short distance behind him, the man is said to have stuffed several items from an employee’s bag into his trousers.

It is reported that he was caught in the act by the secretary but attempted to shove past her in a narrow passage.

The Salvation Army official told St Lucia Times that the secretary raised an alarm and other employees rushed to the scene, blocked the thief from escaping and called the police.

The official said that within a very short time the police, two of whom appeared to have been on a mobile patrol in the area, arrived and arrested the perpetrator.

He disclosed that a search of the man revealed that in addition to a mobile telephone and charger, he had also stolen money.

The man was handcuffed and taken away by the police.
