  3. Cover his face? Wtf. There is no way a robbery occurring and face-guy not panicking or getting a ploc. Any Innocent young man would be hurt by those gunmen! So to protect their identity is outright an attack of the citizenry of St Lucia.

    If this case drags I forsee the rise of the right to bare arms movement to protect families...businesses and other assets amidst the silly season. Take heed!

  4. It is not even a matter of whether or not west tech overcharges their customers that's the issue here. The fact that these criminals have the audacity to think that they can undermine people's intelligence through that poor attempt at theatrics is DISGUSTING. From the video evidence alone, the unmasked guy should hv been the first to hv been apprehended. No one has that demeanor during a robbery. Not to mention the masked guys completely ignore him during the robbery all whilst he stands there holding the door. It should be a matter of grave concern that these criminals are still in our midst as this can happen to ANYONE. This is disturbing to say the least. An example needs to be made of these useless members of society smh

  5. If anyone feels that a business is being abusive with their fees, they don't have to purchase or use that business. There are more than one business offering the same service. To side with the criminals is as ignorant as on can get. The same ones complaining about about the pricing of the business, will pay $200 for an item that cost the manufacturer less than $10. and not complain. The SLP reported UWP government about the ORC to win the elections, now the country is feeling the effects. Sad era for our Sweet Helen.

  13. Of course he is part of the robbery. They would not open the door for a masked person.

    (66)(5)
    • Of course he is one of them.

      Just look at his accessory. That bag is a trademark of drug dealers and thieves.

    • I really do not understand who this Jack*** thought he was fooling. He provided is partners access into the building and held the door open through out the robbery.Then he is playing victim role. The police should realize that these doors have magnetic locks installed thus his reason for holding the door open.

      (1)(1)
  14. Why would you block his face, show jackass face!

    (44)(3)
  15. Umm...am I the only one who realised that one of the robbers is wearing a chef's pants, which means this man was either on his way to work or from work...maybe at a hotel or restaurant?

    (60)(3)
  16. Miiiissssss meee pallll...lmaooo..seems u working for them..

    (3)(11)
  17. clearly the guy in the black pants with white works at a hotel... that is a hotel pants ... most likely he is a steward at one of the hotels .... those guys should be in custody by now cause clearly the unmasked brave guy can be identified...

    (26)(2)
  18. Funny how the criminals fave is blocked out. Bring back operation restore confidence please.

    (34)(7)
  19. Yeah! It's going to be the usual $3,000 bail. They wonder why they are not seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Duh!

    (18)(4)
  20. When they robbing people with all their duties nothing for that???

    (7)(50)
    • YOU SOUND IGNORANT!!!

      (33)(5)
    • dan son ... thats crazy

    • Ya'll ASS-H.O.L.E.S always like talking shate. West Tech don't rob people of any duties ok because if they were it would be very easy to prove based on you taking you S.A.D to customs to verify if the duties paid are in accordance with the tariff. Ya'll bring in all kinds of expensive stuff and once the correct duties are applied ya'll have a problem with paying up thinking that ya'll have been robbed. Know your stuff before ordering and then talking shate. Now about this robbery nothing justifies these young criminals going out there and robbing people at gun point for their hard earned money, especially with the gun of specialized guns that were used with laser sight and all. What if they the criminals had killed everyone just for killing sake what would you have said then.These criminals are getting bolder and bolder and sooner or later they will be coming for you AVAITAY with all the rejoicing you are doing there based on your ignorant comment. Those thugs don't want to work and they believe that your hard earn monies and goods belong to them and they can come for it at anytime. All this is happening because of those who reported on the O.R.C and blaming the officers for doing a GOOD JOB that was necessary at the time because once you have bad eggs they have to be broken setting example for those who might think of going down such a road into the life of criminality. Ya'll think it's a joke with what's going on here in St. Lucia based on crime but it's not and I don't even want to know or see what state St.Lucia would be in say 10 yrs from now if you allow these criminals to continue to do what they are doing now without any concern in this world for the law abiding citizens. This island has to many law breakers who believe that crime is the way to go and they don't even feel ashamed to be classed as a thief or a criminal. It's as if a live of crime is the way to go and every young person wants to be a criminal because to them it's like being a lawyer or doctor. That's what you get when crime is highly glorified. Also the guy without the mask is one of them just watch how he's acting and also they paid no attention to him.

      • You just mentioned how ignorant Avitay sounds mean while you telling them sooner or later they will be coming for you... You sound Even more ignorant and please do not come on her and try to justify west tech robbery to customers.. Y'all feeding people a set of bull shit and adding majour duties on stuff THAT WAS BOUGH VERY CHEAP! With the non sense you talking bout people buying expensive things... WTF the price of the item has to do with the charge of the item... Why not the god dam weight alone! Like I said and I agree completely with avaitay!!!! Y'all are THIVES BY YALL SELVES.... PROFESHIONAL ONES AT THAT..... NOW COME FOR ME JACK ASSS

        (7)(27)
        • Saloptay you are part of the reason we have so much crime in St.Lucia. Because ya'll are so ignorant that ya'll don't even realize that the crap ya'll think of most of the time doesn't amount to jack. JACKASS cost work their duties for your ITEMS BASED ON THE C.I.F which is (THE COST, INSURANCE and FREIGHT) NOT WEIGHT YOU DUMBASS. The weight you are charged on is the frieght you have to pay to west tech not CUSTOMS. And like I mentioned to you that if you HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE DUTIES PAID THEN YOU CAN TAKE IT UP WITH CUSTOMS. WEST TECH CAN'T ROB YOU BASED ON CUSTOMS DUTIES CAUSE IT CAN BE PROVEN THEY ROBBED YOU OK DUMBASS. AND BEFORE YOU CALL SOMEONE A JACKASS WATCH YOURSELF AND AVITAY FIRST.

    • Duties is paid to the Government. If you have an issue with duties please take it up with your Parliamentary Representative.

      (17)(5)
      • Shut the fuck up you self!!!! Y'all just blind BLIND AF..... ST LUCIANS WILL ALWAYS BE TAKEN FOR CRAP... SORRY NOT SORRY

      • The prime minister not even taking the country serious is the parliamentary representatives.... Mweh mem what a stupid comment god bless u

        (10)(4)
      • yes you correct,duties are paid for Government,but you forget to say St.Lucian Governments WAISTING MILLIONS OF $$$ ON TAXPAYERS MONEY.

        Sample St.Jude Hospital:
        Party "A' building partly some of the Hospital. Cost for the taxpayers aprox 100 million $
        Party "B" now want to break it down and build it new. Cost for the taxpayer another aprox.100 $.
        ...who to blame, party "A" or party "B" ?? the big looser is the taxpayer 🙁
