Thief used drill to gain access through concrete roof


The Damascus Clothing Store on High Street was targeted by thieves.

According to the proprietor, sometime between 7 p.m. last Saturday and 7:30 a.m. on Monday, the business was broken into and several items were stolen.

Allegedly, the perpetrator placed two concrete blocks onto a bucket to gain height to the southern side of the roof.

The alleged thief then used a power tool to cut an area out of the concrete roof, creating a space large enough for him to gain access to the store.

The perpetrator reportedly stole an unknown quantity of footwear, including Champion slippers, Nike sneakers and slippers; school bags; and other items of clothing from the building’s top floor, which is utilized as a store room.

Reportedly the intruder used the same point of entry to exit the building.

The scene has reportedly been processed by the Forensic Evidence Recovery Unit (FERU).

Finally, the groundsman at the John Hughes Primary School reported to the All Saints Police Station that some unknown person had attempted to break into the school’s computer room.

Reportedly, the intruder used force to remove one wooden louvre pane from a western window. However, it was determined that nothing had been taken.

This offence reportedly occurred between 3:30 p.m. on February 24 and 7:45 a.m. on February 27.

  1. #inside job?
    #insurance fraud?

    Who the phuck go through this much trouble to steal clothes and shoes?

    Was it a cordless hammer drill?
    How were the rebars in the concrete slab cut? Saws_all? Grinder?
    The tools alone used to break into the establishment could be worth more than the items stolen.

  2. For someone to drill through a concrete roof, takes a lot of time and a very noisy endeavor, so I don’t know how the hell no one heard the noise or notice anything in a city that I’m sure people are always meandering? Very suspicious indeed! It’s funny that the writer couldn’t see this and refrain from publishing until more information is available.

    • @Islanman26…to much phuckery! Dem tink, ebrie bady, doortish to rasclath! But, then again, maybe, it’s the way, #IT’S in Antigua to some degree. Hey…,live the life you love, love the life you live with growth to wisdom.
