Must Read

One of the stained glass panes in a window of the Immaculate Conception Church, Port Louis, overlooking Brown Sequard Street, was broken on the night of Tuesday March 19 into the morning of Wednesday March 20. The thieves opened the window to gain access to the interior. They used a ladder to climb up to the window.  They proceeded to the back of the church, i.e. the entrance, to break open a trunk. They took away all the self-financing envelopes and other donations. An inventory is underway to establish how much was taken.

Officers from the Scene Of Crime Office were also dispatched to the scene. Four stones which were obviously used to break the stained glass window were seized as evidence for the investigation. The CID will be tasked with tracking down the perpetrators of this act. Investigators intend to view images from surveillance cameras on rue Jemmapes, which also cover part of rue Brown Sequard, in order to identify the thugs.
