Armed robbery suspect appears in court

An armed robbery suspect concealed his identity with a towel when he appeared in court  today in connection with the March 24, 2017 holdup of  the National Farmers and General Workers Credit Union at Bois D’Orange.

The suspect, identified as Ked Jean of Marc, Bexon, was remanded in custody pending a bail hearing on Thursday, it was reported.

The 39 year old was charged yesterday with robbery, according to information.

Another suspect is still at large.

Two men, one of them brandishing a gun, are reported to have held up the National Farmers and General Workers Credit Union at Bois D’Orange  on Friday of last week,  after relieving a female security guard of her firearm.

The bandits, who were not wearing masks at the time, robbed the credit union of an estimated $50,000 in cash and cheques before escaping, according to information obtained by the Times.

The armed robbery is reported to have been captured on CCTV camera.

No one was hurt in the incident as staff of the credit union did as they were told, the Times was informed.

      I have to say you have a fair point regarding the use of CCTV evidence in court.

      The law has to be amended in order for CCTV images to be admissible in court.

      However saying that there’s more than one way to skin a cat.

      In this situation an ID parade can suffice, neither of them had masks on, surely the security and or staff should be able to identify the robbers. If CCTV evidence isn’t admissible.

    It amazes me to read some of these comments. Are these people who are condoning armed robbery serious? No wonder this country is sinking into the abyss. If not apprehended and brought to justice, these guys would become emboldened to rob again. Next time it could be your family or mine who might be the victims. If their images were captured by CCTV, these should be plastered all over regular and social media. Show these lazy worthless thugs, who make their living by robbing people of their hard earned money, that the heavy hand of the law is determined to locked them away until they turn old and gray.

    i realize that no one is asking about the other accomplice in this robbery. Since the police knows his true identity why haven’t they also given out his name to the public and asked anyone who knows his whereabouts to call the police. It sickens me when the police knows the names of armed and dangerous criminals that they are in pursuit of and don’t give the public any info which we can use to assist in apprehension and to protect ourselves. For all you know this other guy can be your next door neighbor. In the bigger countries if the police knows the true identity of an armed criminal and dont disclose it to the public and anyone else gets assaulted by that person then the police can also be held accountable.(Expression deleted)

    Seems like the leader is not leading ;seems like the police are not policing ; seems like the Customs department is not controlling; seems like the media is not criticizing; seems like some commentators lack understanding ;seems like the criminals are booming. Seemingly St.Lucia is going backwards.Seems like there needs to be a serious dialogue on how such escalating crime can damage an economy, especially one dependent on tourism ;and the security and well being of St.Lucia and future generations .
