BREAKING NEWS: Medical students robbed of valuables


Two foreign medical students who recently completed studies at a local medical university on the island and were about to return home on Sunday, August 17 had their car broken into and valuables stolen by bandits, before checking in at the Hewanorra International Airport.

Reports are that the bandits stole laptops, jewelry, hard drives, iPads, an SLR camera, money, wallets, passport, medical school notes and textbooks. Their carry-on luggage was also stolen. The incident occurred around 2.p.m at ‘The Reef’, in Vieux Fort.

This caused the students to miss their flights destined for Toronto, Canada since they were not in receipt of any travel documents. Fortunate enough, on Monday morning, the police recovered a bag which contained their books and medical notes in a ditch, located in the Cedar Heights area. Their passports were also found in the bag that contained their books.

However, their five hard drives are still missing. The hard drives contain other important documents relevant to their medical course, family and personal information. They are pleading with the public to help locate these hard drives and are offering a reward of $500 for the safe return of the external hard drives that are measured at 4×8.

Persons with information can make contact with the students on 758-728-8631 or the nearest police station.

  1. Saw some medical students today and told them to watch their things. We have to protect them like our own children. Told them to stay away from The Reef and Breeze joints down on Sandy Beach. Their few dollars are better spent somewhere else.

    Praying to the Lord for these students so that the Police have now found their work and returned it. Might prove that not all Lucian Police are corrupt and criminals too.

    Any update here?

  3. Thieves MUST give it back.

    dis not rite. not rite at all. shame! shame!
    dem medical students are always helping, dey do free medical clinics and help me always with me pressure and suger. dey honest people. ones that don't pay debts are odd few. always say hello and care when dey come into super j.

    dey come here to study, and thieves steal their lives. read de story, everything stolen, but jus need they hard drives back. some medical students jus as poor as us you know.

    medical students are targeted, why the school and police not tell them they are at a risk here?

    POLICE MUST FIND IT. We mus unite and find dey things for medical school. Keep eyes open on de road and in gutters to find. Only a matter of time when it will be a ghost town here and no medical here.

    Theives want to give Lucia a bad name so no one will come here to do medicine. Then they be killing us for our bread.

    Not rite, but Police must do their job.
    Find it.

  4. Defend the thief long enough and soon you'll find him knocking at your doorsteps. Saying that because students have left without paying bills it's okay for them to be robbed?! Ridiculous! By the way, how many Lucians leave the country without paying their bills?

  12. I hope these paid off their debts and this is not Karma as students from IAU have a reputation of not paying their debts to locals. Locals are constantly trying to hunt them down in their last days even going to the airport to look for them.
