‘Monkey’ Among Two Arrested For Breaking Curfew

Francis Lalanne, alias ‘Monkey’ was among two males arrested and charged by Saint Lucia police for breach of an 11.00 pm to 5.00 am curfew, law enforcement officials say.

The other individual was identified as Olson Arthur of Rodney Bay.

Police disclosed that the arrests were made under the Emergency Powers (Disasters) (COVID-19) (Curfew) Order of 2020.

According to police, Lalanne and Arthur were arrested by Gros Islet CID in separate incidents at Gros Islet town and Rodney Bay about 2.00 am Friday morning.

They were arrested under Saint Lucia’s current state of emergency imposed earlier this week, granting the police emergency powers.

Both men were granted bail and are due to appear in court on June 10, 2020.

A person who contravenes the curfew order is liable ti imprisonment with or without hard labour for a term not exceeding six months, or a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars or both and forfeiture of goods or money in respect of which the offence has been committed.

‘Monkey’ is no stranger to the police.

The Balata resident was arrested and charged in 2017 for theft.

That charge arose from a police operation at Balata during which 26 vehicle keys, 2 alarm remotes and 68 key tags were recovered.

Lalanne was also accused of  breaking into a vehicle belonging to a senior civil servant on June 21, 2017 and stealing an iPad.

It is reported that the incident, which occurred in the North of the Island,  was recorded on CCTV cameras.


    • Well you already in a zoo…that pretty sum up everything of what you are!

  1. To how many cases can you tie monkey to? And how many more will he keep on commiting Our laws are a joke.

  2. Why should you blame Monkey? Was the Minister who assisted with the kidnapping arrested? Was the one who ‘pretend ” to the Taiwanese for money evee arrested? These two are known to the police just like Monkey. So why only Monkey.

    • Somebody should take away your rights to use the internet. Sometimes I wonder if some of you actually think about the poop y’all spew online before even posting it… Smdh. Everything is not to be politicized

  3. He is up to no good, that’s precisely why he is out so late. Asking everyone to memorize his face. Also, let your children and family see it.

  4. Why grant them bail. Let them stay there until the state of emergency is lifted and then sentence them to prison with time already spent.

  5. That monkey should be made to swing from a tree! LOL, If you get what I’ mean. No Mo problems from him.

  6. He was probably breaking in someones car.😢 Seen him hitting cars back in the day cultral center..smh car thief.

    • This guy is a career criminal from across the Caribbean to ny new jersey I have personally met him on these boundaries with intent in the late 1990’s
