ST GEORGE’S, Grenada — The Carriacou office of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Grenada was burglarized and vandalized over the Christmas holidays. The police have been notified. No other building in the vicinity was targeted.

The items stolen include a laptop computer, a digital camera, and important information relevant to the NDC.

The culprit or culprits entered through a window of the office building. The building was unoccupied at the time the robbery took place, and the electronic equipment was not visible from outside. It is alleged that the opposition party was specifically targeted.

“No person just walking down the street did this,” said one resident.

Local young NDC politician, Tevin Andrews, condemned the break in and theft of the items. He has refrained from accusing any specific person or group for the theft, but suggested it looks suspicious.

“The evidence speaks for itself,” he said, noting that there seemed to be only a political motivation to explain the electronic items stolen.

Officer in charge of the Carriacou police station, Kenny Smart, is leading the investigation with the hope of bringing the perpetrator/s to justice and recovering the items.
