Thieves steal computer from newspaper’s office

POSTED: 03/15/11 12:11 PM

St. Maarten –Thieves stole a Dell computer and roughly two euro from the Today Newspaper’s office sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning. The break-in occurred sometime between 11:00 p.m. and just after 8:00 a.m. and has been reported to the police.

Staffers discovered the break-in when they arrived for work. One of the windows had been forced open and the culprit(s) had rifled through drawers. The cash box, which was basically empty except for the small amount of roughly two euro, was also found open and on a desktop.

The stolen computer is a Dell and was used in the layout department. The culprit(s) also attempted to steal a second unit, but abandoned that idea part way.

“It’s not a matter that someone only stole one computer. The issue is that computer was so very important to the work that we do as a newspaper,” the News Editor Donellis Browne said.

He added, “We’re really asking anyone who may have seen or who knows something to share that information with the police so that this crime can be solved.”

The police are investigating and the paper’s staffers are making no assumptions about who committed the crime.

“No we’re not making any assumptions or presumptions about who would have done this. The one certainty is that the computer that was taken was near the window that they used to get in,” Browne said.
