HTS St.Lucia:Robbery at the mangos bar
HTS Channel 4 St.Lucia The aim may have been to put the Rodney Bay bar out of business. Audrey Fredericks-Brower is the Supervisor of the Mango’s bar. She says a daylight robbery left the bar with no drinks except soda water. Two thieves stole cases of beer including Red Stripe, Piton and Heineken. They also got away with various other drinks including Baileys, rum punch and Hypnotiq. Fredericks-Brower says all evidence including a security camera points to an inside job.
The robbery occurred late Sunday morning at around 11:55am. It came days after two Mangos employees were fired following their Friday night shift. Fredericks-Brower says it was a bold move enabled by a lack of police presence in the area. The Supervisor does not yet know the total value of the stolen goods. She says the robbery has made her view her clientele in a new light. It has also made her realize how vulnerable her business is to crime.
