FALMOUTH, Trelawny - The administration of the Trelawny Football Association (TFA) is expected to be back to full functionality by today, after a break in at their offices between Monday night and Tuesday morning, which temporarily disrupted activities there.

Workers arrived at the facility located on Cornwall Street in Falmouth on Tuesday, to find it ransacked.

After the police were called in, it was discovered that several items and cash valued at just over $60,000 were stolen.

Marlene Brown, an executive with the TFA told Observer West on Tuesday that there was an earlier attempt to break into the offices.

"They tried to break in a few days ago but had no luck, but they came back last night and gained entry through a window," she said.

A search of the offices revealed that the thieves took a computer monitor, a digital camera, a pair of scissors, a knife and an envelope containing $1,000.

"The persons apparently had time to disconnect the monitor from the CPU," said a disappointed Brown, adding that two speakers were found outside the office, while a bag with some football gear and a cheque book belonging to the TFA, were found on a desk in the building.

The break, however, has not affected the running of the TFA's Patrick Atkinson sponsored Knock Out football competition that started on Sunday.



Did the NWC prepare adequately for the current drought?
