Grenada Prison Escapees Hijack Yacht – Sailors Feared Dead


Two sailors believed to be Americans are feared dead after Grenada prison escapees reportedly hijacked a yacht.

A Royal Grenada Police Force release said the three men were in the holding cell at the South St George Police Station and escaped lawful custody on Sunday, February 18, 2024.

The three, identified as Trevon Robertson, Abita Stanislaus, and Ron Mitchell, had received joint charges of robbery with violence.

Police had also charged Mitchell separately with one count of Rape, three counts of Attempted Rape, two counts of Indecent Assault, and Causing Harm.

After they escaped from Grenada, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines police captured the trio on Wednesday, February 21.

According to preliminary investigations, the men went to Saint Vincent via a yacht docked in Grenada.

A Grenada police release said Vincentian investigators’ leads suggest that the two occupants of the yacht may have been killed in the process.

Media reports have indicated evidence of violence aboard the vessel.

“This investigation is in its infancy stage,” Grenada police stated Thursday.

They also said a team of investigators and a forensic specialist had been dispatched to Saint Vincent in furtherance of the probe.

  1. Sad.. And A good job for law enforcement in SVG and poor job for the Grenadian laws enforcement..
    There was only 3 Three prisoners in a call,
    Let’s hear how many prisoners in a call in St Lucia?
    Sorry for the yatch owners demised fate.
    It’s a saying what goes around comes around.. The meeting of the thieves and survival of the fittest..
    Just my thoughts and observations..

  2. This is beyond a joke; it reflects on all of the Windward Islands and its bad, Bad a 1,000 times. Before spending hard earned money on this ridiculous thing of yours you call Carnival think first; Pjp better concentrate on eradicating St. Lucia of all these lazy Drug Bums with their guns, or else it will soon destroy your Tourist industry.
    Pjp you wasted no time to apply for the job of Chairmanship of the Council for ‘National Security and Law Enforcement’ after Dr. Horace Chang retired; it did look good on your Resume, but what happened? Phil, as a young man I would like to see you succeed, but at the rate things are going, there’s still a slither of hope; you can regain the Helm but first, grow some b***ls you can get along without the two Independents, build the ‘Modern Hospital’ in the South, recruit 20 Bad-Ass Cops to flush out the Bad Guys all around, starting from V/Fort.

  3. Fox::: I can’t agree with you more.. PJP and his regime aren’t doing anything to curb the violence in the island… at the rate it’s escalating that should be a number one priority.. it’s already out of hand with those individuals being judge jury and executioner. Violent crimes must be top of the agenda on a daily basis until… arm the police force with the necessary tools to get started and continue.. you know what.. bring back the death penalty.. it may sound hash but it helps… then is the question of the hospital in the south whole nothe ball game… PJP pull up brother.

  4. Kenstarr…..this shows how much the Saint Lucian authorities truly want to slow down violent crime. Their identities are kept secret in saint lucia….wonder why…maybe is only then the public will find out how closely they have been affiliated for lawyers politicians church leaders etc.
