Thieves wipe out Gros Islet Library

By SNO Staff

The Gros Islet Library, which is housed in the old Gros Islet health centre, has lost thousands of dollars worth of items as a result of a burglary which is suspected to have occurred between last Saturday and Monday of this week, according to reliable sources.

The library’s cleaner discovered that the library was broken into when she turned up at work early Monday morning, September 11 — prior to the library’s 9 a.m. public opening time.

The library had been closed since 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 9.

Missing from the library are one stove, five miniature CPUs, five Netbooks, five Kindles, one mini Whirlpool fridge, one large transformer and a smaller one, one standing fan, surge protector/strips, and a 20-pound cylinder.

The thieves apparently gained access to the library by pry opening a window and removing the burglar bars.

The window is adjacent to the human resource building that is under construction.

“Where they gained entry is not visible to the public,” one of our sources said.

Many of the stolen items were received via donations.

As a result of the theft, the library is now operating “under par”, the source added.

No books were missing.

  2. Sadly, the youth are seeing nothing good by the current crop in Government. Theft begets theft. If they see those with the means stealing big amounts on the top, then they feel inspired. We are setting the wrong example for our youth. We only go after the liitle man and fail to condemn the big crimes.

  3. Just like Chris Rock once joked. Books are like kryptonite to a Nigger. So no surprise that the books were found intact.
