Couple arrested after ‘bomb’ claim at GFL Charles airport

George F.L Charles airport had to be evacuated Saturday morning after a French couple claimed that there were bombs at the facility, it has been reported.

According to eyewitnesses, the man and his female companion had earlier raised an objection to paying extra for overweight baggage as they prepared to board an Air Caraibes flight to Martinique.

It is reported that despite being cautioned, the pair continued to make assertions about explosives being placed on the airport tarmac.

The police were informed and a bomb disposal team was dispatched to the airport to conduct  checks.

Passenger baggage was also subjected to checks while the airport was evacuated, according to the eyewitnesses.

From the time of the incident about 8:30 am to the time that the all clear was given about, the facility was on lockdown.

The couple who are said to have created the stir, were arrested by the police.

    stupidity and arrogance of the bovine excrement kind. Too arrogant to pay what is required. too stupid to realize that they would be arrested for the stupidity. these so-called first world people seem to believe that when they are in so-called third world countries, the law does not apply to them. Lock them Up !

    Thats what will happen cause those French ppl have more rights in Saint Lucia than saint Lucians. They can come here on their ID cards but we need so many documents to travel to their country. And they always so rude when they come here. Choops

    I think the English language beat them. What they meant to say is that they will have to make bomb to pay for the excess baggage. The clerks at the check-in counter got it wrong. They panicked and notified security for no reason.

    I’m so pissed with some of you’ll on this place. You need to understand that the word bomb should not be said at an airport. Weather it was bomb as in sex for cash or bomb as in explosives. The word bomb is a word that should not be of your vocabulary on or at an airport. Now let them know their nonsense will not be accepted in st lucia or any where at any airport worldwide.

    Some of these French people too disgusting. Try and do this at the Aimee Cesare airport not saying what would happen. There is one of these air Caraïbes clerk who is French so if she was working I think she understood fully. Il faut que les français arrêtent de mépriser St. Lucie.

    If was in any American Country the two of them would be Jailed for a very long time .That was done Because they know that they will get away with it in St.Lucua .French Nationals Have more say than St.Lucians they enter the Country with no passport .and do whatever they want here .Whereas St.Lucians have to produce all sorts of Documents to Enter Martinique .And they bad Talk St.Lucian women .

    They should have known better than to try to make bom in a public place like the airport. After the man paid the woman to make a bom he had no money left to pay overweight charges.

    I trust that our justice system is capable of handling this matter. I believe anger and misunderstanding has provoked such an embarrassing situation. We can also say ” Arrogance and underestimation” can lead us there too!
