Firefighter accused of stealing patient’s ring granted bail

The firefighter accused of stealing a patient’s gold wedding ring was granted bail after he made an appearance in court today.

Glen Joseph, 28, of Ciceron was charged with theft and was required to pay $800 in cash or provide surety. The Castries Central fireman was also asked to surrender all his travel documents.

He is also required to report to the Beat and Patrol Department of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) every Wednesday.

Joseph was arrested for allegedly stealing a woman’s gold wedding ring on Friday last.

Reports are that the woman was picked up by an ambulance and transported to a hospital after she had collapsed in Castries.

The woman reported losing her wedding ring after she was picked up by the ambulance. She accused Joseph of stealing the item. Joseph was responsible for taking her to the hospital.

A report was made with the Fire Service and the Criminal Investigations Department of the Royal St. Lucia Police Force (RSLPF).

The fireman was subsequently arrested and charged. Joseph will make another court appearance in November.

  1. Take it from someone in the know: The guy admitted to finding the ring and pawning it for $50. End of story.

  3. I hope the truth comes out and the man (Mr Joseph) is found innocent and can carry on doing his good work.

  4. Reading this article, there is no evidence that the man took the ring. If she collapsed how would she know he took the ring? unless we are not getting the full story from this report.
    But if they found the ring in his possession buddy shame on you.

  5. Just goes to show our lame judicial system, how did she see if she was "unconscious"? I mean that not rocket science to see that this story not adding up yet still a judge ruling against him? At the bottom of what cornflakes box yall get them law degrees?

    • So tell me then, when police solves a murder, by virtue of the person being dead and unable to talk the individual charged for the crime after INVESTIGATION should be set free.your reasoning is so Damn, must be from a cornflakes box.

  6. The news report inidicated that he said that he found the ring on the floor of the ambulance. That same Friday he went to cash for gold to trade it for cash. If you find a ring on an ambulance, to me the best thing you can do is to hold it least for a couple days and see if someone claims it and not go and trade it right away. And for the association president to say that if the guy is found guilty he hope that he is seconded to another department is just so sarcastic and stupid. Man if you have nothing valuable to say just keep quiet. Anyway what should one expect from a misleading fireman.

  7. Unless she saw him take ring how de hell she knows he took it? It could have fell off her hand when she collapsed or whoever helped her could have helped themselves to payment etc. People are quick to accuse others of things without facts. He should sue all a freaking dem for defamation of character. The woman, the police, etc #chupse #batiz

    • Fabulous; anytime you are picked up by police for any crime on a Friday afternoon, you must stay in custody until the next working day which is Monday and if there are holidays in between (whole chowe pa bon). Sorry he got caught in this, I hope he is innocent.

  9. I am inclined to believe that the police would have enough evidence or probable cause before making an arrest.

  10. I do hope that the police did their due diligence before an arrest was made (I do expect that they did). In the absence of physical evidence there is no reason this person's reputation should be on the line like this. In the event that there is evidence he will be one less fire officer to pay.

  11. Do you think that they would arrest and charge him if they did not have evidence? He traded the ring at "Cash for Gold"

  12. If the person was unconscious, how did she know 100% that it was the fire man who took her ring? Could it not be someone else? What's about the person who placed the call to 911.People please think.too quick to make an arrest.Get facts first. If not guilty I will recommend one of the brilliant lawyers in Castries to fight back his case.
