Police have arrested and charged a man who is alleged to have stolen from persons’ bags at public schools, a hospital and a retirement home while posing as BRAGSA employee.

Jason Delplesche, of Edinboro, was brought before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Monday, where he pleaded not guilty to four charges and was granted bail, but was taken away by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) before his bail could be processed.

Police are said to be conducting investigations into similar crimes at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, Lewis Punnett Home, Thompson Home, School for Children with Special Needs (Kingstown), Dorsetshire Hill Government School, Kingstown Anglican School, and Bishop’s College Kingstown.

The thief/thieves are said to have worn facemasks, as per the COVID-19 protocol and claimed to have been dispatched by a state agency to install fans, or inspect and repair electrical installations.
