  1. Won’t be long before the culprit(s) of this crime are identified and caught. In about a month from now look for the guys that are walking around with their “dinks” as noses. They’ll be genetically deformed making for easy arrest.

  2. They greatly love to wander and takes pleasures in stealing.
    Bold and arrogant,these men are not afraid as to complete their course and escape corruption.

  3. Is there yet any Technology in St. Lucia to treat or heal someone affected by Radioactivity? If and I do hope for the good of all, that this culprit be caught, if and when:-
    Don’t jail him – make him sit in a corner teach him to write in ten sheets of paper 100 times:-
    ” I MUST NOT STEAL ” – That’s a better cure than to send him back to his old friends in the big house where they will laugh at him. Then give him ten lashes on each hand and let him go.

  4. It’s harmless unless you take it apart. Also it’s worth 5000usd brand new. Unless you are building roads, it’s useless to you.

  5. That’s what uneducated people do ..they can’t read, can’t write and therefore don’t understand.
    As a result, these morons will steal even when the items are dangerous and deadly and will lead to their demise.

    • @Jay Bird have you ever stop your ignorance for one minute to think it might have been stolen by someone who is EDUCATED and know of it’s worth and use ??? What is it worth to an average Lucian who don’t even know what it is ??

  6. @Truth, the consequences of volere will affect more than just the volere. I just hope it’s not being kept near my home.

  7. That’s all the Tourists want to hear – St. Lucia is Radioactive – all Hotels will close down.

  8. The people in charge of this should be held equally accountable. How on earth is something as dangerous kept in a location without surveillance, lock and key, protocol etc? For fuk sakes man…this is why you dont teach monkeys how to drive…

  9. Makes perfect sense to contact the director if seen instead of popo….them popo will inform on you …cant trust then to rassss!
