The Red Cross Corozal Branch is preparing for a Valentine’s Day fundraiser lunch next week, but today the community organisation learnt that some individuals just don’t have any love to give. Today Red Cross officials found their office building situated in the Santa Rita area of the town broken into and fully ransacked.
The burglar or burglars targeted the office by prying open the wooden doors that led to the storage rooms and then ransacked the building in search of valuables.
They had access to donated supplies, some electronic devices and other items but at the end of the day, it appears that only a few soft drink bottles and crates were moved and taken.
President of the Red Cross Valentine Gonzalez told us off camera that his members are a bit disheartened with the assault on their organisation as they are dedicated to assisting needy members of the community.
Gonzalez added that he hopes the community can remain vigilant in case the burglar attempts to strike again in the neighbourhood.
