Stealing still continues part 2

I refer to an article in the Antigua Sun where a supervisor at Verandah Resort was caught and eventually convicted of theft of hotel property.

He stole flat screen televisions among other property directly from the rooms. He had a master key for the property and was quickly singled out for the crime. The police found the hotel’s possessions on his property.

This again supports my earlier articles on this subject that theft is occuring in all industries in Antigua and our methods of dealing with this problem is irrelevant. It is not the line worker who has access most of the time. It is people in authority. When you have a system set up to screen the little man while the big man walks straight through it creates a situation where the “big man” thinks that he is invincible.

Thousands of dollars of property is slipping through the system at this crucial time in our economy. The hemoraging needs to be stopped. After all if the hoteliers cannot see a good return on investment then they will close their businesses. Everyone in the industry needs to work together to create real soloutions instead of just accepting that this is the way that things are going to be so as long as I get paid I will just go along.
