On Thursday, September 21, 2023 a collaborative operation which involved multiple units of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force was conducted within the Central Division.

The main goal of this operation was to carry out search warrants on the residences and nearby locations of suspects.

During the operation, law enforcement officers made significant progress in combating criminal activities within the Central Division.

Suspects in ongoing investigations were arrested and various items of interest were seized, including an illegal firearm and ammunition.

A warrant to Search for Property executed on the premises of fifty [50] year-old Ricky Hippolyte alias “Parye” of Pavee Road, Castries,  led to the discovery and seizure of one [1] pump-action shotgun and two [2] rounds of 12-gauge ammunition.

He failed to produce a licence for a firearm and ammunition, as a result, he was arrested.

He was later charged for the offences of Possession of Firearm and Possession of Ammunition without a Valid Licence.

Ricky Hippolyte was presented before the Magistrate’s Court, where bail was set in the sum of ten thousand [XCD10000.00] dollars cash, or suitable surety for the Possession of Firearm, and one thousand [XCD1000.00] dollars, cash or suitable surety for Possession of ammunition.

The operation also resulted in the recovery of a stolen motorcycle, and one male individual is currently in custody assisting with this investigation.

The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force remains committed to ensuring public safety and maintaining law and order throughout the island.

Operations such as these demonstrate our unwavering dedication to combating crime and protecting our communities.

  1. – A big hard back 50 year old good for nothing moron – what’s his excuse – he could not find employment – spare me – useless poor excuses and certainly a danger to society and community.

  2. Well done officers. Now the politicians need to make penalties harsher to keep such scum off the street. Amazing that we’ve seen a massive increase in gun crime in this country since 1997 yet neither party has seen it fit to increase the penalties.
