Police are once again asking members of the public not to make themselves soft targets for criminal elements.

This latest reminder comes after a 44-year-old school teacher was robbed of $20,000 which he had left in the glove compartment of his vehicle.

The victim told police that around 1:00 pm on Monday, he parked his vehicle – a silver Nissan Almera – at the front entrance of a night club located along the Southern Main Road, La Romaine, and went away.

Upon returning less than 20 minutes later, he observed the front right side glass broken.

Upon checking, he observed the money was missing.

He raised an alarm and notified the police.

PC Gervais is continuing inquiries.

More on this as it becomes available.
