THIEVES are having a field day at the Southern Taxi Gas Station in Vieux-Fort, robbing the establishment on several occasions during the past few years, and stealing cash. In one particular year the gas station was broken into twice.
The latest incident occurred last Sunday morning when the glass show window in front of the building was shattered and a quantity of cigarettes stolen.
Up to press time the Vieux-Fort police were on the hunt for a suspect, a mentally deranged man from Laborie. According to Inspector MarcellinusLeonce of the Vieux-Fort Police Station, the man was captured by the surveillance cameras at the establishment while in the act. The Inspector said the man has been arrested in the past for the same offence, adding that whenever he is arrested he is taken to the mental hospital where he is evaluated and later released.
At the time of Sunday’s robbery there was no security guard working at the establishment located on the busy Laborie to Vieux- Fort highway.
