The road in Union where armed robbers lurk.

Residents from a section of Union have called for sustained police presence following a series of armed robberies on the road between KM 2 Solutions and the Dame Pearlette Louisy Primary School in the community.

Reports are that between Sept. 13 and 19, at least six persons, including KM 2 Solutions employees, were robbed of money and other valuables by two males, one armed with a gun and the other with a knife. Robberies have also taken place in the past.

Luckily, the victims were not harmed.

A resident, speaking on condition of anonymity, said: “Two girls were robbed on the 13th (of September). Other people were robbed in the week of their phones and money.

The resident said the culprits usually hang out next to the school.

“All they say is pass it,” the source said.

The robbers are very bold, according to residents. They commit the crimes at any time of the day.

“They don’t hide.”

“At least have some police presence there,” one resident requested of the authorities. “Mostly on mornings, Monday to Saturdays.”

  1. People I don't blame (jus deh) for his comments becuz most of these guys doing these crimes their mother knw their brother their sister all of them knw but no one comes out becuz he or she is family.the police can't be every where they are humans just like u and I.ok some one said about investigation even the police want to do all the investigating they want and u saw the criminal and u don't want to talk where does that live him in court..I mean look some one entered my house took my laptop and a few electronics and there is always people on the road where I live no one is talking so its hard for police to do their work if no one is willing to come forward..

  5. I would give them a Special Sting Operation. The type that when you pull up and open your mouth to say pass it you get a hail of gun fire without any witnesses to the crime. This works two fold where buy you take out some fools and you scare of any potential idiots that might be thinking of doing the same thing in future. I remember some guy use to do this some years ago on a car robbing people from the bus stop entering the union highway all the way up to baboneau.

  6. Jus der you are right! Police cant be everywhere we dont want to take steps to protect ourselves.

    Km2 grt additional staff from a security company or get a few off duty officers to work those peak hours. Its your duty to protect your staff too infact all the companies can come together towards funding this venture this will definitely keep these idiot away.

    Police are paid to protect but the cant protect alll communities at once play your part.

    and no one come give me that if it were on my doorstep crap cuz if it were I would tale the exact same measures i ust mentioned.

  7. It's sad that while coming to work to earn a daily bread that persons are being robbed by lazy people who refuse to make a living for themselves. .I personally believe that those guys go to weak looking persons , persons who wouldn't fight back..Holding someone up at gun point so early in the morning why not go out on a job hunt? After all you have the potential to wake up early and take work by the roadside robbing and traumatizing people.One day you may just bounce up with the wrog one and on that very day that person maybe in a very bad mood and for sure yall will get served...

  8. Make It easier for law abiding citizens Of St.Lucia to arm themselves and robbery in broad daylight and crap like that will stop. It is because they know the public is mostly unarmed that they can pull off their robberies.

  9. It's amazing how some people are quick to call for the police but it's only when crime knocks on their door. These are the same people who will criticise the police just because their friends said it and not because they had a bad experience with the police. Even if according to you the police get paid "to be everywhere," we should know that this is impossible hence the reason why we all have to help ourselves. We have our part to play in controlling the spread of crime, it's our country. Stop harbouring criminals because we benefit from the proceeds of their crimes. U become just as guilty as the offender. Play your part, something as little as an anonymous phone call should help. But I guess crime is "not your business" until it gets home. Until then, let the police deal with it after all they get paid by tax payers money to deal with it right?
