Gros Islet police on Wednesday arrested a Saint Lucian national described by INTERPOL in a ‘Red Notice’ on its public website in September 2020 as armed, dangerous and violent.

Officers arrested Fabian Cherubin on Wednesday at Grande Riviere, Gros Islet.

They charged him in connection with a string of burglaries.

Two occurred at the residence of former Saint Lucia Prime Minister, Sir John Compton at Monchy.

And another took place at Calabash Cove hotel.

The three incidents took place within the past three months.

As a result of being charged for the crimes, when Cherubin appeared in court he was remanded in custody.

Someone posted a video on social media of officers arresting him.

In 2013, a Martinique court convicted Cherubin and three other Saint Lucians for a list of serious crimes in 2008.

But when the other three suspects were handed over to the French authorities on November 6, 2008, Cherubin was wanted following an escape to Saint Lucia.

Police here subsequently arrested him, but while awaiting extradition he escaped from prison in 2009.

However, he was recaptured and extradited to Martinique.

A Martinique court then jailed Cherubin for robbery.

But he was deported to Saint Lucia last year after serving his time, official reports say.

However St Lucia Times understands that based on new evidence in possession of Martinique authorities in relation to serious offences including kidnapping, there could be another request for his extradition.

In addition to arresting Cherubin, Gros Islet police also arrested and charged Warren Duval of Babonneau.

This after officers executed a search warrant on Duval’s residence where Cherubin lived.

Residents of the area reported seeing the police carrying away a number of items, believed to have been stolen.

Officers charged Duval with unlawful possession.

And a court Wednesday granted him bail in the sum of $3,000.
