PASEA ESTATE, Tortola, VI- A week after RiteWay Food Markets in Pasea Estate was broken into, burglars struck the business establishment again this morning, July 26, 2020.

The perpetrators, three of them, were caught on surveillance camera.

According to information reaching our newsroom, it appears the men carted off with contents of a safe that they broke into and beverages. They also allegedly ransacked drawers and cabinets.

The discovery was reportedly made by an on-duty security guard shortly after 2:00am.

Masked men

The security guard reportedly became suspicious after he noticed two masked men coming from behind the building and running off into the dark of the night.

Upon investigating, he reportedly found smashed glass on the ground below a kitchen window.

It is believed the burglars gained access to the building via the said window.

There are also reports that the burglars attempted to take a number of bottled items, including soft beverages and alcohol, some of which fell as they exited the building.

Police are said to be investigating.

    Fix and secure the damn window, put a security camera directly over the window if that is the point of entry.

    But they need to catch these thief’s and chop of their left hand with a sword, that is more punishment than sending them to jail, they go to jail they come out worse.
