ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- A vendor at Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) is left counting her losses after her vending booth was burglarised on Saturday night, February 3, 2024.

According to reports reaching our news centre, the burglar/s broke into the booth and then pried open the cabinets before making off with most of the beverages, food containers and various snacks.

Our newsroom was told the vendor had just shopped the various items for the new week.

It is unclear how the burglars managed to get past security to commit the crime.

Efforts to reach Principal Vanessa K. Garraway and Mr Lesmore Smith of Top Priority Security were futile up to time of publication.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) has also not responded to our request for comment.

      Where was security and how come no cameras to show who comes and goes? If I can have cameras around my house with my poor self, how come government schools don't have them in place? This is so sad for the vendor who probably lost a big part of her income.

    Is a damn shame. I firmly believe a student did that.

      A student and his little school mates did that. That was not cool though. I don’t think someone from outside just walk in and did that.

      I'm sure that was done by another vendor. Why would a student steal the Styrofoam containers.

    Maybe the security guards need to patrol more often or maybe they are not enough security guards on camps.
    What happened to he surveillance cameras? Do they have any or maybe not in certain areas?
    Those are important things needed to be checked out.

    There is a security issue on that ESHS campus.

    No one or nothing is secured there. Yet, a whole security firm gets paid to do that.


    How did a person or persons get on campus to do that?

    for the amount of money they spent on that school and the 4 mil donation they received no vendors shouldve been there in those type of building. a well built cafeteria for the students shouldve been included! not in this modern day and age children eating outside under a tent. outside seating should be available yes but not like that.
