Three men armed with guns broke into Lennon High School in Mocho, Clarendon, early Saturday morning, stealing eight computer speakers and $800.

According to reports reaching The Star, the armed robbers drove up to the school sometime around 2 p.m. and subdued the two watchmen, cut away the grille to the principal's office and ransacked the room.


"They didn't get anything much, except for $800 and some computer speakers. However, they damaged some of our furniture, doors and security grille," the school's bursar, Dawn Fearon, said. "We are disheartened that they did this to Lennon, an educational institution, but we are very relieved that they didn't harm any of the watchmen."

She said the men came to rob the school with a well-prepared plan. They broke the door to the industrial area, where they took up a welding plant they used to cut various grilles at the school.

The robbery is the third in Mocho within the last month. Gunmen ambushed and robbed a male resident of an undetermined sum of cash in the Reids area, earlier this month.

In White Chapel, armed men also held up and robbed a pensioner of a number of household items, including flat-screen television sets, phones and jewellery.
