Brazen vehicle thief still at large

The brazen theft of a government vehicle from the Central Health Region early on Tuesday morning was caught on surveillance camera. But up to tonight, the Ministry of Health is still asking for assistance to recover the badly needed vehicle.  The surveillance video shows that a man, dressed in military fatigues, climbed over the fence on St. Thomas Street and broke the lock on the gate. He then casually strolled over to the 2009 Toyota Hilux and started it within seconds, which indicates that he had a key for the truck. The thief got out of the vehicle to open the gate, drove the pickup out of the yard and then got back out to close the gate. All this time, there were two security guards on duty who apparently did not hear the truck start up and drive off.  Police are investigating the possibility that might have been inside job and according to the Central Health Region, they have an idea of who the culprit may be. The vehicle is valued at twenty-five thousand dollars and is used for ULV spraying for the aedes aegypti mosquito during the rainy season. Anyone with information is asked to call 223-2722, 223-2723 or 601-8652.
