Santa Cruz courthouse burglarisedThursday, October 14, 2021
ST ELIZABETH, Jamaica— Hearings at the Santa Cruz courthouse were this morning affected as police cordoned off a section of the building following a break-in at the facility.
Sources say sanitation items and undisclosed documents were stolen during the break-in, which is believed to have happened last night.
Originally built as the petty sessions court, the facility is mere metres from the Santa Cruz police station.
The $11-million building was formally opened by then Justice Minister AJ Nicholson in 2007.
