$700 stolen from gas station

Police are investigating a break-in at a gas station in the Grenville area of St. Andrew.

Sources told THE NEW TODAY that the incident took place on Tuesday night at Charles Service station close to Grand Bras with the robbers getting away with $700.00 in cash.

The incident occurred after the gas station had closed for the night.

The break-in is being handled by the police officer at the Grenville Police station that is attached to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

The Community Relations Department (CRD) of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) has not released any bulletin on the incident at the Gas station.

This incident comes at a time when RGPF is once again being stretched to the limit with several reported cases of Covid-19 among officers.

According to one police insider, the Grenville Police station is “in bad shape” at the moment with Covid-19 cases.

He said that the St David’s Police station is also affected by the virus with at least one Corporal of Police forced to stay home in isolation since Monday after coming in contact with the deadly disease.

Grenada has now passed the 7000 figure in overall Covid-19 cases since the virus was first detected on the island in March 2020.
