Martinique: Three Saint Lucians arrested for violent crimes

Martinique 1ere:-A young 17-year-old Martiniquais and 3 Saint-Lucians, perpetrators of violent robberies at Fort de France, Lamentin, Francois and Salty River, on 4 and 5 October, were arrested and detained.

On the night of October 4 to 5, 2017, four robberies and one attempted robbery with the threat or use of firearms were committed at Fort de France, Lamentin, François and Rivière Salée. The criminals stole two cars, a motorcycle, jewelery, cash and cell phones.

On October 4, around 10:30 pm, a man comes out of a bar, boulevard soleil levant in Fort-de-France. He was attacked by armed individuals who asked him in Creole to give them the keys to his motorcycle. The owner takes too long in the eyes of thugs, one of them pulls and hurts the owner of the bike in the leg, not serious according to the report of the investigators. The thugs run away with the craft.

Another attack occurred around 2:00 am on October 5, 2017. The police noticed the same procedure. Some criminals attack a driver in the Pelletier district of Lamentin to steal his car, but this time without a shot. The witness claims to have heard “English accents”. Still in Lamentin, another driver had to hand over his car around 3 am.

The investigators also make the connection with a previous armed robbery committed on the evening of October 2, during which a C3 vehicle was stolen. This vehicle, discovered as early as October 5, had indeed been observed during the commission of one of the robberies committed during the night of October 4 to 5, 2017,” says Renaud Gaudeul, the public prosecutor.

The prosecution of Fort-de-France entrusts this investigation jointly to the Interregional Judicial Police Directorate (DIPJ) of Lamentin and to the Research Section (SR) of the gendarmerie of Martinique.

  These joint investigations have proved fruitful because, thanks to a thorough work of collecting testimonies, surveillance, as well as the implementation of complex forensic procedures, the investigators have proceeded to the arrest of four alleged perpetrators, October 16 and 17, with the support of no less than 19 soldiers of the GIGN with regard to the dangerousness of the wanted people , “said the prosecutor. The first two individuals arrested were in one of the stolen vehicles at Trois-Ilets. The other two were arrested in Fort-de-France.

At the end of their custody, the four people arrested (a minor, aged 17, born in Fort-de-France, the other three are of St. Lucian origin and are aged 20, 23 and 24 years), were presented yesterday (Friday, October 20, 2017), to the public prosecutor of Fort-de-France then to a magistrate instructor of the jurisdiction, which is seized of facts of robbery with weapon in organized band, attempt of homicides, réel theft with weapons and criminal conspiracy.

Presented to a judge of liberties and detention, these young men were all placed in pre-trial detention at the Ducos prison.

The investigating magistrate has yet to determine the precise role of each of the indicted persons. Other individuals, who may also be involved in this series of criminal events, are still sought,” said the prosecutor of the Republic of Fort-de-France.

      Yes, same as in Canada. Most of the trouble makers are from the Valley, East Coast.

    This is what the report states.

    These joint investigations have proved fruitful because, thanks to a thorough work of collecting testimonies, surveillance, as well as the implementation of complex forensic procedures, the investigators have proceeded to the arrest of four alleged perpetrators, October 16 and 17, with the support of no less than 19 soldiers of the GIGN with regard to the dangerousness of the wanted people , said the prosecutor.

    That is how serious police investigative work is conducted and ultimately how success is achieved. We have a lot to learn with our lack of resources. No CCTV cameras, lacking skilled police investigators and forensics is a joke.

        You don’t need full equipment to do police work. 100 years ago crimes were being committed and solved. The problem is the attitude of the police. D students who didn’t want to turn to crime are the ones turning to the force because they can’t find other jobs. Ask anyone what their career choice is. 0 will answer police. How many students from SMC, SJC, CCSS, Leon Hess etc choose this as a career? And no it has nothing to do with innate intelligence. Those students got to these schools through discipline and determination. That discipline is severely lacking in the force. The gov’t should make police salaries competitive and reduce the size of the force. That will attract a better breed of officers. But as it stands the current crop will go to war if any govt does that.

        The Police Force must attract the brightest and best students leaving secondary school and college. Proper recruitment and thorough training are the key to an efficient and effective Police Force. Of course, the salaries must be attractive and the equipment adequate. The officers should conduct themselves professionally at all times to gain the public’s respect. Corruption should not be tolerated , promotion should be meritorious and ongoing training should be made compulsory for all officers. Public awareness campaigning ought to be conducted to win the hearts and souls of the general public. Some of us are too long on criticism and too short on solution. Too many people suffer from verbal diarrhea and mental constipation.

    Sandrina I guess you’re working at the statistics department in Martinique for you to know that most of those who commit the crimes come from the Dennery area.

      Oh Simpleton. Did you even read the article. 3 Lucians on a crime spree for 4 days and they were caught within 2 weeks and this is not an indictment on our Police? 42 Homicide for the year. How many has been solved? So clearly it takes more than a few new vehicles to get the job done.

    I think it’s pretty ignorant to assume that they are from a particular area with such conviction. Whether or not it’s true you just sound ignorant saying it. Also this article reads like it was translated from original French on Google Translate.
