BTL office robbed, culprit caught on camera

What appeared to be a major robbery may turn out to be a major disappointment for the robbers. Monday, between 12:00 and 1:00, a thief or thieves broke the glass door of the BTL office in Ladyville. The two staff members and the KBH security guard were out for lunch at the time and the crooks ransacked the empty office, taking four hundred dollars in cash, a small amount of cheques, and around twenty thousand dollars in phone cards. What the culprit may not know is that all the action was recorded on a security camera, the cheque has been stopped and all the pin numbers on the phone cards have been de-activated. Thus a twenty-three thousand dollar heist has become a piece of chump change–and the robber should soon become a TV star…in Magistrate’s Court. The public is warned to buy phone cards from authorised dealers only.
