Thieves make off with loot and cash after breaking into popular clothing store and a cook shop


REAL NEWS: A clothing store and a cook shop were the most recent targets of thieves, who broke into both businesses and made off with a quantity of items including, in one case, over $7,000.

Reports are that the Source Clothing Store, located at Redcliffe Street, was burglarized, and two cash registers containing money were stolen.

Further reports say the intruder used an implement to cut a hole on the northern side of the ground floor, creating a space large enough for the perpetrator to enter and leave the building.

Once inside, the person unplugged two cash registers and stole $600 and $7,000, respectively, from each.

After the owner discovered that his business place had been broken into, he went to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and made a report.

Officers visited the scene and a search was carried out for the cash registers, which were found at the back of the business, in the storeroom.

In the meantime, a Clare Hall woman reported to the CID that some unknown person had broken into her cook shop, Fish Tales, and stolen a quantity of assorted items.

Reports are that the woman secured her business and returned the following day, at which time she found that it had been burglarized, with several items of liquor and snacks stolen.

Apparently, the intruder had used a hard implement to pry the hinge off a western door to gain entry.

A search was carried out, in and around the surrounding area, for the missing items, but without success.

Investigation into both incidents continue.

  1. Why would a business leave money in cash registers overnight? Business people have to do better than that. There are a lot of thieves in Antigua unfortunately.

      • Yeah, & some insurance employees too, like chief accountants & financial controllers, brazenly stealing company funds right under people’s noses right here in Antigua, & having the gall to try n silence those who know bout it into submission, explicitly stating so in funds transfer instruction letters to banks, at the peril of losing your job, or worse yet, maybe even getting killed in cold blood like brother Nigel Christian RIP, but it is written “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.” Luke 8:17

  2. the real thieves getting slapped on the wrist banks, government, employers and the police 😒😑

  3. Businesses should be equipped with state of the art alarms systems. You break in and the motion detector would picked up all movements immediately and notify the owners and Police. Do the alarm companies in Antigua monitor their customers buildings?

  4. We will know who the thief is who broke into the Source Clothing Store very soon. He will be the newest vagrant/crazy person on the street of St. John. Be on the look out.
