Criminals are having a field day in Vieux-Fort committing illegal acts in various parts of the community.

The latest incident occurred between 10:00 pm yesterday and 7:00 am today when two masked, unarmed men broke and entered First Caribbean International Bank (CIBC) in Vieux-Fort. The intruders made their way into the bank by entering the area where the ATM is located and breaking the door leading to the main building.

However, they came out empty-handed.

They were captured on the bank’s CCTV which police say they are examining to see if they can identify the intruders.

The men made their escape on board a vehicle.

Staff of the bank are tight-lipped on the incident.

The last incident occurred earlier this month when Family Food Mart in La resource, Vieux-Fort was robbed of an undisclosed sum of money and items.

So far, no one has been arrested in connection with that incident.
