On Friday, October 6, 2023, multiple units of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force collaborated to conduct an operation within the Central Division.

During the operation, law enforcement officials executed five search warrants and apprehended six suspects.

Police officers arrested thirty-seven- [37] year-old Henson Anthony and thirty-three [33] year-old Linn Antoine of Ravine Poisson, Castries, for Possession of Firearm and Ammunition.

The arrest was made after a search of their residence revealed a .22 calibre rifle with a magazine containing nine rounds of .22 calibre ammunition.

The rifle was equipped with a sound suppressor, which is used to reduce weapon muzzle flash and sound.

Inside a household occupied by Dannyson Antoine and Leandra Beroo also of Ravine Poisson, Castries, Police Officers discovered and seized three [3] .380 calibre rounds of ammunition, consequently, they were arrested for the unlawful Possession of Ammunition.

Two other people have been arrested in connection with different investigations.

Henson Anthony and Linn Antoine were charged for the offences of Possession of Firearm and Possession of Ammunition.

They were presented before the First District Court, where bail was set at twenty thousand [XCD20000.00] dollars, each, for Possession of Firearm and five thousand [XCD5000.00] dollars, for Possession of Ammunition respectively.

Dannyson Antoine and Leandra Beroo were also charged for Possession of Ammunition and were bailed in the sum of five thousand [XCD5000.00] dollars each.

  1. The Fine for Unlicensed Firearms and Ammunition is not good .Too many illegal Guns and Ammunition in St.Lucia. Foreigners Travelling from Overseas to Purchase Firearms. and Ammunition.

  2. Well done officers. Shame on those politicians for not implementing stricter laws for dealing with this gun scourge. They are solely responsible for creating the laws the police uphold and the judiciary enforces.

  3. Imagine police do all that work…revealing their identity in those raids….only to see the same criminals a day or a week after enjoying life. My heart goes out to our officers who are trying even though the court system keeps failing!

  4. Bail money is still too lenient!
    WHEN will cabinet pass the laws to upgrade bail and charges to lawbreakers.
    This would / might be a more firm deterrent – and the govt could make a lot more money.

  5. Is it because some of the politicians and law-makers are themselves criminals who traffic guns, ammunition, drugs, etc., why they allow bail for the criminals who are caught red-handed with deadly weapons in our little island where murders and gun crimes are at crisis stahe? Just asking for a friend.

  6. I have been making that call for well over a year now. The Bail conditions and money are too lenient. The system which was designed to address criminals in the 60’s is no longer effective. Today’s criminals are smarter and more creative in the craft. We need a system which is always ahead of the criminals. Any one found in violation of ammunitions in SLU should be restricted. Their travel documents should be confiscated, Local travel should be restricted – this means they are only allowed to go to work, church service and visit to their doctor. Any form of travel should be prohibited until court decides their fate. Also, they must be inside the residence by 6PM Monday to Sunday. Their Bail money should be set to $50, 000.00 minimum with no negotiation. With these conditions, this alone will make them think twice. If the court takes a year to hear the case then the freedom is affected for entire year.

  7. Have a gun? No problem…bail.
    Have a hand grenade? Got your back…bail.
    Have sticks of dynamite? Chill…bail.
    Have a gun & handcuffs? Don’t sweat…bail.
    Have an army tank? Take it easy bro… bail.
    Have a suicide drone? Cool..bail
    Have a machine gun and flame thrower? Maximum chill…bail.

  8. Yet still dem politicians will go to the house talk all kinda irrelevant stuff and talk about last administration and youth economy. I myslef still trying to figure out what is youth economy? What is different now iwth our economy. All i know is about young ppl being killed by gun violnce. Nothing substantial NOWEHERE

  9. Police once again doing their job. Aprehend those criminals, seize weapons but yet still the shootings going on. And tomorrow the PM hvn some big Press Release about gvn police vehicles to do that same thing and the results are still more shootings. Mah Sav. MWEN JUST LASSS SAY BOOG SAHAH

  10. @IS good question. The answer is simple. Unfortunately it may not be long but sadly one day the chickens will come home to A clau.
    SMH

  11. Some need to realize and understand the shitstem is all about making that doe!…if they were to set bail at tremendously high prices the criminals will not afford to pay and their treasury would remain empty…so why not set it at a rate where money can keep flowing in their coffers….so yes they are more interested in money that deterring crime and stopping poor mothers from keep on holding their heads and belly and bawling

  12. AND THEN THEY WERE BAILED TO GO GET MORE. NO BAIL FOR THEM PPL WHAT IS GOING ON IN LUCIA. WHY ARREST THEM WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY IF YOU GOING TO GIVE THEM BAIL, THEY HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY. STOP!!!!!!

  13. @MISCHIEF…..I AM ON BOARD WITH YOU, I WISH THE PROPER PPL WOULD VIEW THE NEWS BECAUSE ALL WHAT YOU POINTED OUT SHOULD BE DONE PRONTO.

  14. @ Mischief I don’t know this person never meet or heard about him or her but I totally agreed with everything that person outlined in their text or comment I feel the same way the system is failing law abading citizens of this country and the police while some are out there working hard to make this place safe its turning up like the trinidadians use to say spinning top in mud or pising in the wind
