KFC’s Grenville branch was not spared the wrath of notorious bandits who successfully broke into the chicken outlet in the wee hours of the morning last Sunday escaping with an undisclosed sum of money.
Sources say the amount of money missing could be several thousand.
Staff members on arrival at work on Sunday morning to begin their daily routine of preparing for the day’s business were greeted with the sight of smashed glass on a door to the downstairs of the building which separates the upstairs from the downstairs. This sight caused workers to immediately conclude that thieves had entered the outlet after closing up time the previous evening.
Upon further investigation, it was revealed that monies left at the outlet after the Saturday sales were missing.
The bandits had obviously not entered through the front door via the Victoria Street entrance but through a back doorway to the upstairs of the building, overlooking the sea. It was speculated that they might have used a nearby tree that could give them access to the roof of an old abandoned building behind the outlet. From there they could have easily gotten to the concrete roof of the outlet’s garbage and machine room. They would then have gained access to the dining area upstairs the outlet by breaking into a back door. From there they would have free run of both floors on the interior.
The intrusion was promptly reported to the Grenville Police and up to press time investigation was continuing as they diligently searched for clues as to who was involved in the burglary.
The Grenville Police Station is located just about one hundred feet away from the KFC outlet, which attests to the boldness of the intruders.
In spite the incident, work at the outlet continued as normal for the day Sunday after the police had completed their on-site investigations.
