Island Original targeted by thieves over twelve times this year


Island Original has been broken into again, the second time this week, and in all, over 12 times for the year so far.

Reporters spoke with the exasperated store manager, as thieves continue to prey on his establishment.

The store, which is located at the corner of Market in St.Mary’s streets, was broken into sometime early Friday morning.

He said :

“This morning I got a call saying that from the security firm saying that the store had been broken into. So I made my way down.I was about 3:30am or so in the morning.

After I came, I saw that the lock was broken. The intruders gained entry through the main door and stole several items.

They took pants, shoes, football boots, they ram sacked the whole place.

So I just have to do a tower check to see what is going on.

This is happening too often  now.

This is the second time for the week and for the year it’s over a dozen times.

So it’s heart wrenching and it’s really taking a toll on me.

I’m having sleepless night and the robberies are getting more intense this Christmas, so I have to step up the security system. ”

    • Thank you very much good question. That’s why no security firm can watch over nothing for me buy your own system and set um up yaself boss. I don’t trust them moving right along.

  1. With the store been broken into soo many times for the year why the Police don’t do what we the old time Police used to do and it works. I would not mention it here to give the thieves a headsup.

  2. Boos don’t you have a gun? Make sure it’s fully loaded and wait in side for them to come in, then fo what you have to do to defend yourself and your property, this is not complicated

  3. Pity you didn’t catch them, then again all that fake knock off stuff yall sell at exorbitant prices is a no no.
