Police Commissioner, Milton Desir, has given an ultimatum to individuals who pelted police with stones and bottles Sunday night in Soufriere, to surrender.

“Don’t let the police come for you,” he warned.

The missile throwers damaged a police vehicle.

Desir also disclosed that police officers had to ‘take cover’.

However, he told reporters that he is not taking the matter lightly.

“The persons who were involved – you know yourselves, please report to Soufriere police station by twelve midday tomorrow, March 9,” the Police Commissioner said.

He said the police are gathering evidence.

Desir spoke Monday at a news conference, where he condemned the Soufriere incident.

“There will be no tolerance for lawlessness in Saint Lucia,” he asserted.

Desir disclosed that the Soufriere incident occurred at 8.00 pm – one hour after the 7.00 pm curfew hour.

According to reports, people were at a bar at Baron’s Drive where a ‘carnival like’ event was taking place nearby.

But Desir  explained that when officers intervened, people disregarded the law enforcement authorities.

As a result, he warned owners that once they breach the COVID-19 operating protocols, he will ensure that their licences are suspended.
