FISH BAY, Tortola, VI – Bishop John I. Cline revealed to Virgin Islands News Online today, April 23, 2014 that his store, Atlantis Solar was robbed sometime overnight but has expressed confidence that the perpetrator will soon be caught after making off with $5,000 worth of specific lighting products.

“I came in this morning and realised that my store was broken into,” Bishop Cline said, “but I also realised that it was a very specific break in because they only took stuff that they knew and it had to be somebody who knew what they were looking for.”

He further disclosed that numerous other valuable items, remained lying on the shelves and walls on display as well as in a display case yet the culprits only stole several specific LED-type lighting fixtures including four-foot LED tubes, PAR 38 lights and high bay lights. The stolen items are estimated to be in the region of $5000.

Officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force were informed of the incident and uplifted fingerprints as they conducted investigations on site at the Fish Bay store today. The suspect reportedly entered the store after prying their way through a window. There were no security cameras on site at the time.

Bishop Cline related that a specific suspect may be responsible for the intrusion and expressed confidence that the person will be apprehended soon.

He stated that there were very few people on the island who would deal on a regular basis with the type of lights stolen and said his store had only stocked the four-foot tubes last week.

The lights are used both for business and commercial purposes and are popular with persons switching to conserve on their electricity usage. All of the domestic type lights were left in the store, he said. Bishop Cline also urged persons to be on the look out for the stolen items.

      The poor in spirit, and self worth choosing to remain in the lowness of life by selling out to the Devil.
      Karma and retribution drizzles down to dem children but Satan is the boss of heathens.
      That is why some of us will forever be wallowing in poverty,poor health and unfortunate offsprings by the dozen.
      We are our own enemies.

      HI wonder if Cline does beg you for anything. What business do you have? I never went to college but I have several kinds of businesses with trade licences approved by both governments. What does NDP have to do with it. You fool ever thought that tomorrow might be for you? Set the hate aside de man.

    Why are we Tolians so hateful and cruel towards each other? What an evil community. Everyone has a right to enter into any legal business that they choose, no matter what your rank is. This young man is a business man, and may I say, a person who a lot of you bloggers run to for help when you broke. A crime was committed - tomorrow it might be you (or me, God forbid). Stop bringing down our brothers and sisters and stop being so negative. The same spirit you use to bring another one down in secret is going to backfire on you one day. Hate me too now!

    We are a sick set of puppies on this island, no wonder we're going nowhere fast. The hatred, the jealousy is astounding. We would do much better channeling this negativity into something positive for ourselves. I hope the culprit is found irregardless of who the hell owns the light store, what his occupation is, and where his store is located.

    To be honest, the first thing that came to mind is WOW, the poor finally robbing the rich. I could not help it. I know what he has done to many and I saw this as pay back. But seriously this made the news, there are so many people out there hungry and cant send them children to school with food etc. Tortola soooo rich that we cant see people hurting and for those that ask for help they aint getting it and the church still askin them to give more and more to build up church and the congregation hurting.

    AT Wise up I don't know what book you reading where does it say you can't father a congregation and still own a business. You are the one that need to wise up. Jealousy and envy will keep a lot of us down.
