On Tuesday, September 26, 2023, Officers from the Northern Division demonstrated their unwavering commitment to public safety by actively participating in a highly coordinated joint operation.

This operation involved the execution of search warrants in Reduit, Gros-Islet, and Bocage, Castries.

These proactive measures are part of an ongoing effort to combat crime effectively and ensure the well-being of our community.

During the operation, a search warrant was executed on the premises of thirty-four [34] year-old Eyan Williams, also known as Peanut, of Reduit, Gros-Islet. The search resulted in the discovery and seizure of the following items:

  • One bulletproof vest.
  • One pair of handcuffs.
  • A quantity of green plant-like material.

In the course of the raid, Eyan Williams was accompanied by his brother, thirty-one [31[year-old, Riam Williams, also of Reduit, Gros Islet. The brothers were arrested for Possession of Firearm without a valid licence.

A search warrant executed on the premises of thirty year-old [30] Kerrigan Magloire alias Coolie of Bocage, Castries led to the discovery one [1] .40 calibre pistol and two [2] .40 rounds of ammunition. Kerrigan Magloire was arrested for Possession of Firearm and Ammunition without a Valid Licence.

Eyan and Riam Williams were charged for the offences of Possession of Firearm without a valid licence.

The duo were presented before the First District Court, where bail was granted in the sum of fifteen thousand [XCD15000.00] dollars, cash or suitable surety respectively.

We aim to create a society that is free from the influence of illegal firearms and ammunition.

  1. Wow! A criminal is found with Illegal firearm, bulletproof vest, handcuffs, etc., and still granted bail!!! Wow! What do the criminals have to fear? Nothing! We are not serious about fighting crime! Please, police officers, realize that you are on your own! The system is doing very little to protect you! So, protect yourselves on the job — and go home safely to your family who need you! Don’t risk your lives unnecessarily chasing gunmen and their firearms. As soon as you capture them the system release them again to terrorize you!

  2. The Williams brothers have no business getting bail. Those slugs possess handcuffs, a weapon and bulletproof vest. This is what’s wrong with the system. Pierre needs to shut the revolving door. This may be a case where they can afford to pay bail and view it as a cost doing business. A dangerous duo.

  3. QUESTION WHERE DID THEY GET THE BULLET PROOF VEST FROM, NO STORES IN LUCIA SELLS THAT. I AM BAFFELED , DID I HEAR BAIL THOSE GUYS HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO POST BAIL, I THINK THE POLICE ARE AFRAID OF THOSE CRIMINALS OR THEY GAINING FROM THOSE CRIMES, THOSE BROTHERS SHOULD BE IN SIDE WITHOUT BAIL. RIGHT NOW THEY ARE VERY ANGRY THEY GOT BUSTED SO BE VERY AFAID.

  4. There are young boys in la Ressource vieux Fort from the age of 12 , smoking cocaine , weed and drinking rum and stealing from hard working farmers . The people and their parents know what they are doing but the boys does bring the plantain for their unemployed mothers to cook as things are rough on them

  5. The Police have once again done their job, which is to apprehend those criminals and seize the illegal guns, but the magistrates will grant them bail because the law as debated by the Politicians says they are to be given bail. And somebody will tell me Y I BLAMING POLITICIANS. They, parliamentarians are the ones who can change the laws but they don’t, PJP boasting about gvn police vehicles. Look they used the vehicles got 2 known criminals with firearm, bulletproof vest and handcuffs but You, PJP hv a law that says gv them bail. At this point am I to blame parents. SMBH.

  6. The magistrates has dementia……they have no idea what they’re doing.. or they’re just afraid because they think the criminals will come knocking on their door. This s…t doesn’t make sense its time for these judges to retire….

  7. This situation in st lucia is way out of hand and the system cannot continue to do the samething thing the was doing back in the 1980s and 1990s in response to crime
    The authorities needs to spot granting bail for murder and serious crime and illegal firearms when arrested for if granted bail should also add ankle monitoring as a condition for bail because once you get caught in this kinda business the authories needs to know your whereabouts 24>7 and also your cellphone communications need to be monitored as well

  8. I check out post from time to time in this forum and honestly reading some of them especially where laws governing bail are concerned it is really a BIG joke….the criminals will ruin St. Lucia as they continue to roam and reap havoc on the island knowing they can afford bail..revisit your archaic laws or none thereof …I honestly feel bad for Helen of the West..

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. -Albert Einstein.

  9. Magistrate Phulchere can you tell us the amount of gun cases that is pending. Can you give a reason any reason why these cases are not going to trials

  10. Why shouldn’t everyone have guns to protect themselves and families too ?? Who is stupid??? The law is shit .
    We must get bail. St Lucia is a real shit hole . Bail only cost $2000 . $$$CRIME

  11. Anonymous are you ok in the brain? An air rifle can kill. Watch you tube videos retarded you will see what air rifles do. Awa wi for you people. Google this shit. “REGARDLESS OR ACTION TYPE, CALIBER AND MUZZLE ENERGY, AIR GUNS ARE CONSIDERED TO BE FIRE ARMS……smfh

  12. @ Truth be told. You are correct. The criminals now are fearless and society knows. With all the help provided to the police and this is the end result.
    We must be careful as a nation

    Also.
    Why is the business owner still not mentioned with the container of cannabis. Why?
    One of the main and underlying reasons why crime is escalation in St. Lucia.

    Let us all put pressure on the govetnment in enduring those he put in office delivers.

    We need the name of the business person in the north.
    Again who is he.

  13. It is time you change your policy – SHOW THE PHOTO OF THESE CRIMINALS – let them know that people will know who they are – habitable criminals.
