KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Tastee patty shop on Princess Street in downtown, Kingston has become the latest establishment hit by robbers in the market district.

A source told OBSERVER ONLINE this morning that the patty shop was broken into between 1:21 am and 4:00 am.

According to the source, the thieves, who came prepared, cut the shutter locks, gained entry and ransacked the office.

Another source who confirmed the robbery said the robbers stole more than $60,000 and a television set among other things.

OBSERVER ONLINE was also told that it was not the first time thieves have gained entry to the premises.

Prior to installing a number of security features, the source said every two months robbers would enter through the roof and steal food items.

In recent weeks, a number of stores in the market district have broken into.

More information to come.
