  1. Good job officers , now that the ships are staying in longer and also they are trying to revamp Castries so more can be done for visitors to look forward to something in Castries on Sundays. You guys should patrol this area more frequently especially on foot. I saw a lot of visitors just going for a walk all the way to the round about in Vigie, there was so many of them just looking for something to do. This is where the bicycle unit needs to be and not in town only harassing drivers to give them tickets.

  2. He should be given an injection and Paralyzed both of his arms. Their Parents especially the Mothers always have an excuse on their Criminal Behalf

  3. There are lots of robberies of tourists that goes unreported, I have heard of several places in Lucia where people have been robbed at knife and gun point on beaches. We live in a lawless society.

  4. I was about to ask if this was an old story until I saw the date. This is getting rather ridiculous to hear almost on a daily basis that police have to arrest someone who stole from a tourist. We depend on that industry for our very survival and by now something needs to be done to curtail this or we will be doomed.

  5. The real problem is that the system refuses to shame this dirty thief by posting his name everywhere. I sick and tired of this system protecting perpetrators…the biggest scam is our legal system…lawyers making their cut…magistrates must work….politicians need votes from the streets…..

  6. He should have his most dominant hand chopped off for such a crime…It is time we make an example of these THIEVES.
