Two men have been charged with burglarising the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College and stealing a quantity of items valued EC$45,955.01, the property of the college, police said on Friday.
The two, both residents of Glen, are Kamorni Antoine, a 24-year-old mason, and Shorn Cabral, 18, a labourer.
Police say the burglary occurred between 7 p.m. on Aug. 28 and 2 p.m. on Aug. 30.
The men were charged on Tuesday and appeared at the Serious Offences Court on Wednesday.
They were granted bail in the sum of $50,000 each and were placed on curfew from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
They are also to surrender all travel documents.
The matter is scheduled for summary trial on Oct. 12.
Police last week issued a wanted notice for Antoine, who was escorted back to St. Vincent from Barbados by lawyer Israel Bruce on Sunday.
After the burglary, college officials have remained tight-lipped amidst reports that the burglar(s) made off with a vault containing upwards of EC$30,000 that the college had collected as students’ registration fees.
When contacted about the burglary earlier this month, Nigel Scott, director of the college, told I-Witness News, “That’s not a story.”
