The owners and employees at George and Company law chambers on Cadet Street, Castries  and the Ministry of Housing are reeling from the loss of over $5,000 in electronics after their offices were burglarised in the wee hours of Tuesday morning (July 29, 2014).

However, they are somewhat comforted in the fact that the perpetrators have been caught on tape.

An employee at George and Company, who chose to remain anonymous, told Saint Lucia News Online (SNO) that surveillance cameras recorded the incident and clearly show the faces of the two men who burglarised the law firm.

The incident occurred sometime after 2 a.m.

The office was ransacked by the men who had forced their way into the building. Among what was stolen were two laptops, a hard drive, cell phones and petty cash.

The employee said they received a call about the incident earlier this morning.

George and Company law chambers is housed in the Cox and Company building which also has several other offices and businesses including the Ministry of Housing and Combined Insurance.

It is believed that the burglars targeted the entire building and also robbed the Ministry of Housing. Their attempts to burglarise the Combined Insurance business were unsuccessful.

“They tried to get into the insurance building but they couldn’t get in … so they just happened to be right in front the camera… and it picked them up,” the employee said.

Meanwhile, Chief Housing and Urban Renewal Officer at the Ministry of Housing, Jenny Daniel, confirmed to SNO that the office was also ransacked. A laptop and office supplies, which include thumb drives, are among items which are missing, she said. A total value has not yet been placed on them.

According to her, the ceiling was damaged by the alleged perpetrators. A lock was also removed from a door which led to the office bathroom.

Police have done some investigations at the scene and are looking into the matter, the employee said.

Finger prints samples have been taken.

“They have the pictures as well,” the employee added.

Persons with information on the suspects in the photo are asked to contact the nearest police station.

  1. This should now draw our attention as a parent to train our children not only to follow the law they should also follow the law of God.In a home were such things happens like this the possibility that peace is there is 1/2 y because father love your wife and wife love your husband respect each other there are some thing that must have driven this two kids into this , this can happen in any home single or double.i see in our country saint lucia children dont have respect for elders and if that is possible i wonder how parent will be able to train there children that also rings a bell to the society they should also assist parent
    looking at it from the other hand if you are 18 years old you are free to do what you like
    look around to day must creams are done by teen which is not right i believe if you are 18years of age still under your parent you are bond to obey and do what so ever they tell you and if you feel you are ok on your own than move out and feed for your self. Spare not this thiefs and spoil other children to become one for the society will be the one to blame.

  4. @Boogbeff, if some men were more responsible then the mothers would not be left to bring up the children and discipline them all on their own. Instead of blaming women what you should have done is to call on all men who fathered children and neglected their role and responsibility to do so. Be an advocate for good parenting rather than blaming women.
