UPDATE: Police make arrest in Laborie abduction and car theft case


Police have arrested one suspect in relation to an abduction, robbery and car theft in Laborie on Saturday.

Police Press Officer Aniel Innocent told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) today, August 18, that other suspects are being pursued by the police.

Innocent said the stolen car was recovered and it is now lodge with the police until investigations are completed.

Reports are that four men approached a white car, PD2083, driven by Learie Ernest of Roblot, Choiseul, in the wee hours of Saturday morning in Piaye, near Anchor’s bar. The men forcefully took over the car from him.

Ernest was then beaten and forced into the backseat. The bandits took his phones and his bank account was demanded from him.

Ernest, who is now at home recovering from the ordeal, recalls that the hijackers planned to drown him at some beach.

According to Ernest, when the hijackers left to enter the ATM machine, he slipped out and ran into an alleyway and made his escape. After trekking through mud and bushes, he finally made it to the Vieux Fort Police Station where he made a report.

A full investigation was launched by the Laborie police.

This sadens me as the young man who was hurt is such a good yourng man. One day he gave me all the money he has left just for me to make lunch. we could have lost him.

  2. That area indicated is not Laborie proper. Both the abductee and the abductors are from half way between Choisuel and Laborie. They are most likely unknown to most Laborians.

    • so there is a rationale why the bandits stole the person's car, beat him up and try to drain his account? I guess you must have insight, the police should be tracking you down to find out the reak story, maybe you were one of the culprits since you seem to know why they did what they did.

  9. 4 bandits abduct someone and acquire his acc#/ATM code...all 4 needed to physically go to the machine? 1 to hold the card, 1 to put it in, one to type the code, 1 to pull the $ out??? WORLD'S DUMBEST CRIMINALS?! First we had morons posing for selfies on a security camera, now 4 brains together and 1 didnt consider the abductee should not be left unattended? Did the take 4hrs to carry out their 4step robbery? How badly was this person beaten such that there was no catching up to him? Was this ATM in the bush(cuz he went from alley-way to bush in no time it seems)?? I cannot with these ppl!! We have dumb crime in SLU cuz we have too many dumb-dumbs walking around. Get an education! Sell coconuts! Wash cars! Just read a damn book even.

    • Thieves just don't trust each other at any time. You see utter confusion and mistrust underline their ultimate operation thus making them easy to target and apprehend.

  13. All what I'm going to say now is for bonified and law abiding people of this Nation to begin arming yourselves.
    And treat anyone who you do not know as a threat.
    And at the first aggression, use any force with the use of your weapon.

    Yield to what i have stated and take the appropriate action.
