Bandits Attack Vieux Fort Shoe Store

Three masked bandits attacked Uncle Sam’s Shoe Store on Clarke Street in Vieux Fort Saturday morning about 9.00 am, police have confirmed.

One of the bandits is reported to have been armed with a gun.

According to a law enforcement official, the intruders made off with an undisclosed sum of money.

No one was reported injured in the robbery.

There are no further details at this time.


  1. The impunity continues. Brazen broad daylight robberies now. Noone is safe. Yet the Minister of National Securitu has the audacity to state that he is satisfied with his performance. Mediocre … About time for bandits to invade his home… might finally get his attention. This guy needs to be fired long time.

    • It is rather sad that you would wish this for the Minister; this wish makes you no different from the bandit because his life and that of his family can be lost.
      The Minister nor the police could have prevented this crime so let’s try to solve crime collectively rather than do the blame game.
      Luckily no one was injured.

      • Moncolas, when Chastanet and the current minister of National Security (who knew better) were saying all over the place that it was the former government responsible for the crime, did you tell them that crime is a matter to be fought collectively or did you join the bandwagon? If you agreed then that crime is to be fought collectively then we have been on the same page. However, if you agreed with them then, that makes you a very big hypocrite and politically insincere person. Reflect!

    • There is to much of a big gap between the rich and the poor crime could never stop in st Lucia as most st Lucian’s are exploited working for less than 900 dollars a month

  2. At 9am how did the bandits know there was cash at 9am. What time do stores open in St. Lucia. The bandits are taking over …something needs to happen sooner than later…..your economy is being impacted.

  3. Most of them work 4 the police so they won’t get arrested and moncolas or whoever u are I disagree with what u thinking cuz these politicians have their licensed firearms so they don’t care much so we have to blame them for a soft judiciary system
