Police have arrested three male individuals accused of burglarizing St. Mary’s College (SMC).
The police have also recovered one laptop belonging to the school.
St. Lucia News Online (SNO) understands that as investigations continue, charges are expected to be laid.
Police Press Relations Officer Zachary Hippolyte said that investigations are also leading to possible charges in reference to the incidents at the Castries Comprehensive School (CCSS).
On Monday, October 10, 2016 armed bandits tied up and physically assaulted the security guards that were on duty at SMC, before breaking into the school building.
SNO was told that the police had responded in good time, interrupting the burglary. But while shots were fired, the bandits still managed to escape.
Previously, two bandits scaled the school fence and attacked several form two students at SMC, robbing them of their valuables and cash. The students were on a short break when that incident occurred.
Meanwhile, bandits had also burglarized CCSS during October 1, 2016, making off with several pieces of electronic items and cash. The bandits also ransacked the entire school building.
One week before that, three men armed with cutlasses attacked two security guards at CCSS.
