A 37-year-old fisherman from La Clery has been charged in the largest drug bust conducted here in recent memory.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Frances Henry, fresh off vacation, convened a press conference to release information.

The ACP, with direct responsibility for Crime and Intelligence, told the media that the operation, which involved officers from various units within the police force and support from the air wing of the RSS, was well coordinated.

Henry said a fishing vessel was spotted and followed as it entered the waters along Pigeon Island.

The vessel then ran aground on the Marisule Beach and two men ran off the boat.

Police eventually apprehend one of the two men who fled from the fishing vessel and returned him to the scene at Walcott Beach. There, police retrieved eight packages with 189 rectangular blocks of white substance believed to be cocaine. The combined weight was 214 kilos.

The vessel ironically bore the name, Usual Suspect, with registration number SLO77801. Police arrested the captain, 37-year-old Lloyd Jn. Marie, a fisherman from La Clery.

ACP Henry told the media that the police did not release the information much earlier because they were still conducting investigations.

  1. There is more to
    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if there is any man or woman with a prominent title involve they will NEVER go down. That poor man will be the only little fish they will fry. I feel sorry for him, even if he rat them out it will fall on deaf ears I know my homeland. Right now inquire mind wants to know what's going on, so they are talking with both sets of lips,the horizontal ones and the bearded vertical ones. The RSLPF it is what it is, good luck on you all endeavor.

  2. The cops are stupid most times, but I am sure this time they are connecting the dots. We all know that this lousy fisherman does not have millions to spare. The less info the cops put out, the better it is for them tactically. That means it forces the financier to act...because he/she does not what the cops know. Maybe the captain has revealed who is the financier and the cops are collecting intel to bust him/her. Also, possibly the captain may have kept his mouth shut and decided to go down with the ship. If the captain has not spilled the beans, I imagine the cops are ordering a lolo beouf (2.0) from Vieux-Fort to help him.

  3. Based on the news, something is not right, why is it only the french man, the owner of the boat in jail for last November's drug bust? This time the fisherman from La Clery will take the fall alone and the main culprits will be allowed to reinvest and plan to bring another big set of cocaine here AGAIN. Then they will charge another boat owner when caught. Sick of all this corruption. Things not happening straight in St Lucia. I'm sure the police know who's coke it is already. Yes they did a good job in intercepting the coke, they know the 'usual suspects' they get praises for a job well done which is fair but it usually ends there, no drug lord convicted AGAIN and so the drama continues. I hope they get the next set again and may the drug lords get broke in the process, because somebody just lose more than 3 million plus there. salopla sa byah fet

  7. Two men, alone. In a small open fishing boat went all the way to South America and back to St. Lucia with millions of $$$ in white powder. One man caught, the other on the run. That's the result of top-secret police investigations?!
