Haiti's embassy in Nassau ransacked by thieves

Thieves who ransacked the Haitian Embassy in Nassau, Bahamas were not attempting to make off with documents of a confidential nature or any passports according to Haitian Ambassador, Antonio Rodrigue. What they were apparently after were two safes that held an un-revealed sum of money.

The thieves targeted the building, which is on Shirley Street, on a Sunday night, well into the hours of the next morning and ransacked all the drawers, but they only walked away with the two safes, leaving behind all the documents and computers. The break-in was discovered the next morning when normal work began at around 8 a.m., and the authorities were informed.
Ambassador Rodrigue said the robbery was likely part of a spate of illegal activity that has been taking place recently in the city. Just weeks ago, the Department of Immigration was also broken into.

In this incident, those items that had been locked away safely had not been stolen.
