ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- An unknown amount of cash was reportedly taken from the Mellow Moods Café on Flemming Street, Tortola by someone who broke into the business place between April 3 and 4, 2021.

The burglar stole tips and money left in the cash register from the previous day.

According to reports reaching our newsroom, someone who works at the establishment made the discovery at approximately 1:00 pm yesterday, Sunday, April 4, 2021.

The employee allegedly alerted the owner of the business after entering the building and seeing the 'tips pan' on the floor and the cash register open.

Our newsroom was told that some $250 was taken from the cash register while the amount taken from the 'tips pan' is unknown.

From all indication, the burglar pried open a back door to gain entry.

Working CCTV cameras are likely to help identify the thief, our newsroom was told.

    They burglarized my little snack bar 3 months ago. I leave no money ever, so they stole soda and snacks. Never leave money or they will come back for more.

    A few places leave a small float $1, $5 and change for the morning shift to use. When the establishment is locked and equipped with cct cameras normally this would not be enough money to be worth stealing. $250 I think is too much.

    This is what happens when you recruit a commissioner based on his skin tone alone... and he gets extended by his crony ‘mate’ gus, a bonafide racist bigot.

      Tis because of perpetrators and predators of a certain skintone and incompetent parenting that reinforcement in the opposite skintone is being recruited as a last resort.. But nothing can stop the universal reality of Black on Black crime.

    You all stop it! If you are going to say anything, please be objective.

    It is not the Hon. Premier's fault and it is certainly not the Commissioner of Police fault either.

    Please blame those who created the Plandemic that have caused lazy addicts to rob others of their hard earned cash in order to get their daily fix of drugs.
