Four Saint Lucians are in custody in Martinique as law enforcement officials on the French Caribbean Island investigate an armed robbery of a jewellery store last week in the capital, Fort de France.

After 96 hours in police custody, local reports say investigators formally charged the men and remanded them in custody at the Ducos prison while a hunt continues for others who may have been  involved in the crime.

According to Martinique-France-Antilles, heavily armed men stormed the Jewellery Store, placed a weapon to the owner’s head, and fled with jewels valued at 300,000 Euros.

Investigators have since recovered the stolen items.

  1. “Woe to you,teachers of the law and hypocrites !
    You are like white washed tombs !
    ‘You snakes ! You brood of vipers !
    How will you escape being condemn to hell ?
    So you testify against yourself !
    You builds tombs for GOD’s chosen ones and decorate the grave of the righteous ?
    Look, your house is left to desolate.
    For I tell you, you will not see me until you say,
    ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD’ ”.
    “Watch and Pray”.
    “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day the LORD your Lord will come.
    So you also must be ready, because the Son of man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
    The parable of the Ten Virgins !
    Five of them were foolish and five wise.
    The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise,however took oil in a jar along with their lamp. The bridegroom was a long time in coming,and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

    “At midnight the cry rang out : ‘Here’s the bridegroom ! Come out to meet him !’
    “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil ;our lamps are going out’.
    ” No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead,go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
    “But while they were on their way to buy the oil,the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet.
    And the door was shut !!
    “Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir !’
    they said. ‘Open the door for us !’
    “But he replied (Jesus) , ‘I tell you the truth,I don’t know you.’
    “Therefore keep watch and pray, because you do not know the hour”.

  2. @The Undertaker that would be extra jurisdictional killings and the police could get in serious trouble for that unless the criminals opened fire or resisted

  3. The French Police are Very Soft Hearted all of them should have been Fatally Shot .I am Sure they travel to Martinique illegally .Its timd the French police Start getting Rid of these Thugs From St.Lucia

  4. St. Lucia’s number one export…… crime causing Nig’*er’s That’s all we seem to be good for. Throw the book at them Dano!

  5. There are also honest and law abiding St. Lucians in Martinique. I would guess that they form the large majority. A handful of bad ones gives everyone a bad name.

  6. lol thats why the Martinicans will never like yall. You Lucians always doing something stupid in the people country but yall so dumb that the same bad manners you have of talking down here when you do a crime catch up to you thats why they caught you. I am sure they tried to sell the jewelry right away. Just like how they caught the guys that entered mega j

  7. Yes yet again Lucians displaying they lack of intelligence and ambition.

    Not promoting or condoning but four fools entered the shop, stole 300K euro of jewellery, police had a chance to recovery the jewellery and arrest you’ll! What was the point of that robbery??????

    If the four of them teamed up and became full time beggars for one year they would have made more than 75K each.

    There’s truly no hope.

  8. @Hilary Clinton. Rex, Bingo, Frosty and Rusty in other words they have no names cause St Lucia does hide their names and even were they where working from the public

  9. I guess that’s the miscreants our society produces when all politicians and church goers without an answer do is pray, pray, pray. It’s apparent that prayer does not produce moral citizens…sad what these rascals have done to Saint Lucia’s image…the answer to this breakdown of society’s moral compass is invest in education all citizens, increasing the jobs pool in Saint Lucia by creating jobs in new fintech, innovation, etc etc .. having a program of civics in all schools to teach pride in self and ones country, have a national service program where all citizens have to give at least a year of service to the country…that program can include caring for the elderly, community beautification, hiking the island, etc etc…it’s sad when government don’t have a clue and lack imagination…sad sad sad state of affairs…

  10. There’s a joke in Martinique that Lucians live in Plywood houses so that they can just burst through the walls and run when the Martinique police pull up on them. Our island has become a disgrace and now we are exporting all our criminals. Helen of the west my @ss

  11. It’s clear now, the stores in St.Lucia too lapo for them sophisticated crooks in St.Lucia so they had to target a more lucrative stash. Those in authority should be proactive and should put local high-end stores on high alert.

  12. Why are St Lucians not behaving themselves in Martinique or where ever they go. If it is not murder is it drugs. Now it is theft.

  13. All these malveetay Luciains do is travel and give the law abiding St. Lucians a and the country a bad name…it’s a crying shame.
