Share post:

FIRST IT WAS gold. Now the latest craze is cellphones.

The thieves are back at it.

Both police and businesses in Barbados are getting headaches as electronics continue to be the item of choice for thieves.

General manager of CashWiz Nakita Coppin, told the WEEKEND NATION that the business had faced some issues as it related to people selling them stolen cellphones.

Cashwiz buys, trades and sells second hand goods. It is also a gold, silver and platinum dealer. It has two branches in Barbados and 18 stores throughout the Caribbean.

However, Coppin said because of the nature of the business, there was very little they could do to stop such occurrences.
