  1. isn’t this something you called a setup. who she sold the car too must be investigated of his connections. take his phone and reveal his called log before and after the sales. If, however, they do not recover the cash – if the magistrate allows these guys on bail the magistrate should be jail instead. because this is like charging a man for killing someone and send him back into society for him to commit same

  2. @ Fire Burn. Is there a remote possibility that working might not interest them. Oops! Can it be many of them are lazy? Scoring heists may be more profitable. They definitely don’t pay $3 an hour in Martinique.

  3. St Lucia just have to much small thinkers bad mind an jealous people, until them dogs don’t die it only getting worse

  4. Evil-mindedness and its natural offshoot of criminality, is the order of the day (and night!) in Saint Lucia! A return to godliness is Saint Luci’s only hope. And time is running out on this nation!

  5. I don’t get it …the poor will always be amongst us. Do your research ….and you will see the poorest societies in the world always found an honest way to earn a living.

    They use innovation and creativity to come up with ideas be it farming, fishing, sewing, selling good etc.

    The St. Lucia thugs, malveetayes, demoniacs, along with some of their parents are certainly not looking for work even if it paid $50 an hour.

    They want to reap where they did not sow and get rich overnight. Rome was not built in a day ..I have been working and I remember making less than $200 a week. I never robbed or stole and I never will. Some Lucians encourage the thieves by making excuses for their disgusting behavior saying they can not find work ..spare me THEY DO NOT want a legitimate job ..they DID NOT EVEN WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL in the first place.
    @ prober I agree with you 💯…people in St. Lucia need to stop these kinds of transactions which could cause them their life.

  6. All kinds of theft taking place in St. Lucia. Let;s not forget some builders who want to overcharge people or steal their building material. Especially if the person building is a woman.
