San Juan, Oct 25 (EFE).- Puerto Rico is investigating the suspicious wave of robberies and vandalism in its public schools that began after the government announced its intention to cancel its multimillion-dollar contract with a private company that guards the schools at night.
Education Secretary Rafael Roman and Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla have said that the robberies began before the night watchmen were dismissed.
The decision to cancel the contract with Genesis Security Services was announced last week by Roman, but did not take effect until this week.
