Several offices and desks at George Town’s St. Ignatius High School administration building were broken into sometime during the Easter holiday period, but Royal Cayman Islands Police could not immediately identify when the break-in had occurred.
Police were called around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday to the Walkers Road school where officials reported five desks and three offices in the main administration area had been “ransacked.”
According to St. Ignatius parish office head Suresh Rajaian, the burglary suspect or suspects had gone through each of the desks and offices looking for spare cash or valuable items. As far as Mr. Rajaian could tell, only one laptop had been taken.
However, he said since school staff members were on holiday, the full extent of the burglary might not be known until people return and determine what, if anything else, was missing.
The school has been on break since Friday, March 25, and classes are not due to resume until next week, so police officers could not pin down an exact time the crime was committed.
Mr. Rajaian said it appeared burglars got in through the back door of the administration office building by breaking the lock.
