On Wednesday, May 18, 2022, Officers attached to the Criminal Investigations Department in Gros Islet conducted an operation, along with the Special Services Unit and the Robbery Response Team of the Criminal Investigations Department in Castries.

During the operation, a residence at Cas en Bas, Gros Islet, was searched, which resulted in the recovery of one (1) Taurus 9mm pistol and thirty (30) rounds of 9mm ammunition.

Terrance Hazelwood, a Vincentian National with Saint Lucian citizenship, and his wife, Andira Stokely-Hazelwood, of Kentucky, USA, with Saint Lucian citizenship, were arrested for the illegal possession of firearm and ammunition. Both have been charged with contravening the Firearms Act and escorted to the First District Court for bail. They were granted bail in the sum of $25,000.00 each, along with travel restrictions and reporting conditions.

The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force continues to work alongside the Customs and Excise Department to further crackdown on the shipment of prohibited weapons into the island. Anyone with information regarding this is asked to contact the Crime Hotline at 45CRIME or the nearest police station.

  1. What about the court container shouting the customs unit and the police as well plz get down too this st.lucians like myself haven’t forgotten it plz and thankx

    • Not condoning their actions but do you know whether anyone of them have St. Lucian parentage? We really need to think before commenting sometimes.

      Plenty St. Lucians here with parents from other countries. I was born and raised here but I am also a Trinidadian national, naturalized through my mother 40 years ago. My children are Canadian nationals, who were also born in St. Lucia, but naturalized through their father.

      • FACTS! People really need to quit jumping to ignorant conclusions without facts. My family is in the same situation. My kids were born to a Grenadian and a Lucian. One was born in the US and the other in South Korea. They’re able to get/claim citizenship in any of the countries mentioned above. With that said, knowledge is power. What these two individuals did was wrong and shouldn’t be condoned regardless of their citizenship.

  2. They got their citizenship via CIP. The program that sells our citizenship for $150,000 US dollars simple.
    Politicians on both side support selling heritage for peanuts.

  3. Under which administration did the get the citizenship?
    After their jail sentence they should be deported
