A number of disturbing videos have been circulating on social media depicting persons stealing bottled water from water trucks tasked with the delivery of water to several communities. The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) vehemently registers its displeasure with this criminal behaviour.

While persons are distressed at this time and are in need of water and other food supplies, it must be done in an orderly manner. The RSVGPF takes a zero tolerance approach to this and all other kinds of unlawful acts; and therefore calls on the persons responsible to desist immediately or face prosecution.
