Celelia Cadette, 47, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) today that her daughter Shirlon Anthony arrived home from a youth meeting at about 10:30 pm on Saturday, September 20, 2014. Cadette said she was feeling extremely dizzy, so she rubbed her head and went to sleep on the couch after locking her doors and putting her new cell phone to charge.
When Anthony woke at about 3 a.m. and tried to reach for the phone she realised that the phone was no longer connected to the charger. Cadette said it was at that point she told her daughter “aa somebody take the phone”. She said her daughter insisted no one intruded and that Cadette had misplaced the phone.
Cadette said she then went to her room to check on her bag and realised that EC$1,500 along with US$68 and her “keep-sake” coins that she kept in her purse were gone. She then pulled a drawer where she keeps her jewelry and noticed that two gold chains were missing.
Cadette is convinced that the intruder entered from an extremely high opening in the roof and must have sprayed some kind of substance in her home which prevented both her and her daughter from hearing a sound.
She is very concerned as to who may have done this as she claims this is the second time her home was invaded while her family slept, first being in 2011. Cadette wants her items returned especially her Samsung Galaxy cell phone which was given to her two days earlier by her employer.
Police are currently investigating the matter and Cadette urges anyone with information to please contact the nearest police station.
