Soufriere Police Foil Armed Robbery Attempt – Two Suspects Arrested


Quick action by Soufriere police on Saturday foiled an attempt by four armed bandits to rob the Genesis Entertainment Bar & Grill on Church Street.

According to reports, four bandits armed with guns, their faces partially covered by handkerchiefs or hoodies, descended on the business establishment at about 2:45 am.

The intruders jumped a wall to enter the yard as the bar was about to close.

But because a security system was in place, the police were quickly alerted and arrived on the scene.

The officers were able to arrest two suspects while two others escaped.

No injuries were reported.

There are no further details at this time.

  1. I love it when the police make me smile. Well done officers! This is how it is done! The only thing you all did wrong was not sending at least 1 of them to the mortuary. Next time they try that shit please do so.

  2. For some reason i reading that and my mind already seeing a mother crying with her head tie with bayrum say whoii why he was good to me but he follow his friends

  3. If people do not steal in st lucia is over 80 percent of us will die . That is how low we are in st lucia even if you have a job you still have to steal just to eat one meal a day .


  5. Bravo!…Now quickly charge and name them. I need to know who those scumbags are, but I doubt they will be from the area, Soufrierians don’t do each other so.

    P.S You have my permission to waterboard them. We need the names of the other two.

  6. Things are so rough that even if you are employed the wages are so low that you have to steal to eat 1 meal a day digicel, flow ,massy supermarket and courts with 45 percent interest rate are the criminals

  7. @Pagba and Truth be Told – you are correct and I am laughing because your comments are on point. Now to those who like to blame everything on things hard in St. Lucia – unemployment etc….—– these good for nothing bandits (aka my son was a very good boy that never trouble nobody —whatever?????????) were wide awake armed and conspiring to do harm at 2:45am in the morning.

    Do you really think these malveetayes want a real job like law abiding citizens ?????- I don’t think so. Some of the parents should be charged as accomplices for encouraging their kids to rob, harm and steal by partaking of the ill gotten gains – the blood is also on their hands as well and they too will reap as they have sowed…for sure.

    By the way – there is no place on planet earth where things are easy for anyone – you have to work and do something meaningful and law abiding in order to eat and keep a roof over your head – the math is simple. St. Lucians need to stop making excuses for thugs who have purposed in their heart to live a life of crime, envy and ignorance — period — point blank.

  8. What did Philip J Piere say”do what you can to survive” I’m even surprised those police did anything
    Things getting more expensive everyday,only certain people get raise even bread raise
