Police investigate attempted robbery at All Saints Secondary School

Three men were arrested and three firearms recovered following an attempted robbery at the All Saints Secondary School early Wednesday morning. Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Frankie Thomas says the men, who are currently assisting with the investigations, appear to have entered the compound with the intention of committing a felony.
They were prevented from doing so, he said, due to the quick response of police officers. “In responding, the perpetrators fired at the police and the police fired back. Thankfully no one was injured coming out of that particular incident,” Thomas reported. The police PRO was unable to say whether or not the men will be charged, noting that the investigations are still in its early stages and there are certain procedures which will still have to be carried out.
There have been several reports of theft and vandalism at the All Saints Secondary School throughout the year. Earlier this year, Education Minister Michael Browne disclosed that the All Saints Secondary was one of three educational institutions to be retrofitted with Closed Circuit Television (CCTV). The Ministry of Information and the Public Communications Safety Network was expected to bear the responsibility for surveillance, once the cameras become operational. It is unclear whether or not this process was completed.
