Balata resident charged with preparing to commit crime

Balata resident, Francis Lalanne, alias ‘Monkey’  has been granted bail in the sum of $3000 cash or suitable surety on a charge of preparing for commission of a crime, contrary to section 80 of the Criminal Code of Saint Lucia.

The charge arose from a police operation on Wednesday, June 28 at Balata during which 26 vehicle keys, 2 alarm remotes and 68 key tags were recovered.

The bail conditions imposed on  fifty-one year old Lalanne when he appeared Thursday  before the First District Court in Gros Islet include a curfew and reporting conditions.

He is scheduled to make his second court appearance on August 3, 2017.

      Lol, oh the comments, are so funny here. A life of crime always has repurcussions, this is a joke penalty.$ 250,000 bail that is a darn good deterrent for dem thieves. People hustling hard to buy their vehicles you all just stealing and pillaging. The laws need to be more stringent to deter thieves. Unconscienable VOLAIRE

    He and his gang are the same ones breading ppl vehicles at the Dennery lookout Point, Serenity Park, Choc Cemetery, Cultural Centre. Police knew that all along. Why did they take so long.
    They changed numbers from PC 4831 Lancer to PE 3194 BLUE Daihatsu Jeep to PD 9171 and PG 3971 White Nissan. Dem tief

    What about the VIN numbers? Are people so damn stupid? The VIN is on the dashboard and other places on the vehicle; if they are missing consider it stolen. St Lucia is too small an island to be stealing vehicles.

    He shouldn’t get any bail and they should have let him take his life, can’t the system see God is allowing the devil to torment his own, let them fight themselves if he did the others would follow but all hope isn’t lost the same way he attended the other criminals will follow and it up to the system Exale them make Helen safe again

    We cry out loud about crime difficult to fine the criminals but when we catches them their penalties are leaniant their Bail is peanuts and we wants to solve crime. Those magistrates and judges. I am blaming them for crimes that are plaguing our country because their sentences are causing more crimes .the little bail money the little time in prison don’t mean anything for the criminals. To cause them to think. Unless hard core sentences laid down criminals will always have their way.

    26 VEHICLE KEYS AND 68 TAGS AND YOURE ONLY CHARGED $3 ,000?

    HOW DID THE JUDGE COME UP WITH THAT AMOUNT ?

    Oh boy this situation is really sad .. im not sure what to say here but i am from laborie and i know this guy and have heard stories about him.. if he has been arrested for this before …many times then this means that he wont stop doing it because he gets away with it everytime..on the other hand he has people helping him with this cause i dont think that he would do this alone.. im here right now and i am speechless.. i honestly dont know what to say…i know that saint lucia is not the worst place in the world but it hurts me as a saint lucian to see what we are becoming ….and no matter how many news reviews we have seen expressing the nasty nature of what we do…no matter how many religious or spiritual leaders come forth and try to make us understand that we are hurting each other and we need to stop and generate love rather than hate… no matter how many people suffer or how much blood is shed… the old just as the young still go out there and cause carnage and turmoil and mess peoples lives up…it hurts me to see that as a people that we dont care about anything or anyone no matter how much we are educated and how much we are warned about KARMA…Life was not meant to be this way…and to all the people who will say “thats life”…. thats not life…thats what we have made life become..
