    Was it food items? If this is 100% food items and no electrical merchandise things must be difficulty hard and if so I’d like to assist. Them should still be fully charged for 1) not respecting the curfew 2) for stealing. Thanks to all involved with help made the arrest.

    So this is what they are doing in this "so called paradise"? Not somewhere to go to visit after the Coronavirus threat is over.
