Bahamas Volleyball Team Robbed Of Everything From Barbados Garfield Sobers Locker Room – Complaints of “Lukewarm” Response By Barbados Police & Volleyball Officials

Bags, Passports, Credit Cards, Laptop PCs, Thousands Of Dollars In Equipment & Possessions Stolen

Barbados Bahamas Volleyball TheftThis won’t go over too well anywhere. Last Friday night the Bahamas Women’s National Volleyball team were playing at Garfield Sobers and were ordered by Barbados officials to move all their bags to a locked room for security.

After the game they returned to find everything – and we mean everything – stolen. Clothes, passports, wallets, jewellery, cameras, ipods, laptop computers, credit cards, watches… you name it.

One would think that as a courtesy to visiting teams, the Barbados Volleyball Association might have provided someone to keep an eye on players’ possessions – you know, so we wouldn’t have foreign news media reporting a mass theft against our guests and our country’s “lukewarm”, disinterested response.

So what does the Bahamian team really think of the response from the Barbados Police, the Barbados Volleyball Association and others to their plight?

For the answer you’ll have to read the Nassau Guardian – because it might be a while before you read about their thoughts in the local media…
