  1. Ronald Joseph is a menace!!! He was a real problem when he lived on St. Croix. They need to lock him up for good. Ask about him in Nyc too.

  2. Juridical or Juridique Système
    Police Force
    Untrustworthy !!
    If you are handling a buissness and profit is not increasing, certainlly, there is a problem.
    Although you can find an honest man among a thousand :
    Likewise,if the police force are links with creminals and drug dealers informing and supplies them with feedup for dishonest gains ;
    but then then there is no one whom you can trust and who would not fear for their safetynes to protect their familles ???

  3. They Should be Remanded Until the police Gather all the Information as to Where and From who the Ammunition came from.If they Refuse to give that information Their lenalty should be one year fir each Round of ammunition and 10years for each Weapon

  4. Good job officers. Thanks for your risks.
    Why on earth are criminals still getting bail after being caught with unlawful firearms? They will just get back on the treadmill (rearm, intimidate witnesses and business as usual). We need to shut the door in that area.

  5. Now you’re talking – for along time I’ve been thinking, what kind of Police Force we have in St. Lucia, beside just the Police Band Players. Now that’s not enough, we want to know ”WHO GOT PAID TO LET THE MURDERER OUT OF PRISON IN BARBONEAU” I’m pretty sure the top brass, and our well represented ‘Drug Lord’ knows all well, but according to the ‘Law of the Jungle’ he must keep quiet. Sooner or later the truth will come to light, God is not asleep, praise His Holy Name.
