A safe containing $50,000 belonging to a church on All Saints Road
allegedly was stolen from the home of a woman several days ago.
Reports say the alleged victim had left home after securing
the money in a black safe located in her bedroom. The safe was said
to also contain her Antigua and Barbuda passport and birth
When she returned home almost eight hours later – having been
gone from 8:45 a.m. until 4 p.m. on December 5 – she discovered
that the safe had been stolen.
She reported the robbery through 911 and police officers visited her
home, whey they observed no signs of forced entry.
A search was carried out for the stolen safe but was not successful.
Meanwhile, a private education institution was the target of thieves,
who removed a number of items from the administration office.
Reports say the office administrator of the New Bethel SDA Academy
in Liberta reported the incident to the local police station on
December 5, alleging that the break-in occurred sometime between
4 p.m. on December 4 and 7:15 a.m. the following day.
An intruder reportedly broke into the school and stole $2, 000 in
cash from a pan located in a filing-cabinet drawer; a white 24” x 24”
table-top refrigerator valued at $300; and the contents of the fridge,
valued at $50.
Reportedly, the perpetrator had gained entry by using a hard object
to pry open an eastern metal door.
