spot_img

On Tuesday, May 28, 2024, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force recovered another illegal firearm, following a traffic operation conducted in the Dennery Valley.

Officers were out on patrol when they had cause to stop a motorcycle being ridden by forty-year-old (40) Camian Hamson, also known as “Tomma” of Aux Lyon, Dennery.

The officers conducted a search, which led to the discovery and seizure of one (1) 9mm calibre pistol with one (1) magazine containing twelve (12) rounds of 9mm calibre ammunition.

As a result, Camian Hamson was arrested and subsequently charged for the offences of Possession of Firearm and Possession of Ammunition.

Investigations into this recovery also prompted officers to execute a search warrant on Camian Hamson’s premises, but nothing of evidentiary value was found during the raid.

On Wednesday, 29 May 2024, Camian Thomas appeared before the Magistrate’s Court for a bail hearing, where the court granted bail with the following conditions:

  • Possession of Firearm: Regarding this charge, bail was set at twenty thousand dollars (XCD20,000.00) cash suitable surety, and or land documents.
  • Possession of Ammunition: Regarding this charge, bail was set at twenty thousand dollars (XCD20,000.00) cash suitable surety, and or land documents.

  1. This $20 000.00 bail is too lenient for possession of firearms. At least $50 000.00 for firearms and $30 000.00 for ammunition. Common, we have to put fright in these criminals.

  2. Signs that the authorities are serious in the media but jokers on the ground when it comes to combating crime. I will again, why isn’t the mugshot of this Camian not publicized? Show their faces so we can appreciate who their mothers, sisters, brothers, friends etc are! All of them probably are in the gun business or atleast aiding and abeting!

  3. Take a page out of the laws in Turks and Caicos it will serve St. Lucia well. Tourist at looking at 12 years just for having bullets in their luggage.
