Woman Among Seven People Held In Dennery For Illegal Firearm, Ammunition & Drugs

spot_img

A woman was among seven people the police arrested on Friday morning for possession of an illegal firearm, ammunition and drugs during separate operations in Dennery.

The police conducted the operations in the Dennery Valley and Lumiere as part of their intensified anti-crime campaign amid a recent spike in deadly gun crime.

Law enforcement officers have seized more than twenty illegal guns since the start of the year.

But some officers have privately expressed frustration with the judiciary over granting bail to suspects, asserting that it is equivalent to permitting the suspects to ‘go back to work’.

The Royal Saint Lucia Police (RSLPF) recently announced compensation for citizens volunteering information about crime.

People with information may call the anonymous Crime Hotline – 555.

And the police have renewed their appeal to the public to come forward with information to assist in the fight against crime.

  1. I am waiting to read – ‘ all given Bail for x + y $ – waiting for Court hearing ‘
    St. Lucia the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. No change till HE returns.

  2. What about the previous cases? When are they going to be heard? Is it another set of adjournments?

  3. is best y’all go own a gun instead of waiting for case try protecting y’all lives waiting for case are y’all lawyer’s

  4. As we all have known…policing is not the problem…the problem is with all those 10 cents bail and adjournment of cases etc. No disincentive…only hugs and kisses to criminals especially from Mary Francis and the magistrates.

  5. ” … But some officers have privately expressed frustration with the judiciary over granting bail to suspects, asserting that it is equivalent to permitting the suspects to ‘go back to work’. …”
