Patterson’s Gap man robbed of cell phone; police allegedly refuses to help

A man was robbed of one Samsung Galaxy cell phone at about 3:00 this morning at Patterson’s Gap, Castries.

The victim, who requested anonymity, said that he was robbed by one armed bandit.

According to him, he saw the bandit’s face and described him to be wearing all black. The man said after the robbery, he called the police to make a report and spoke with a female officer.

“The officer told me what I expect them to do for me,” he told SNO. However, the victim managed to track his phone using a special technology and said the phone’s last location was Bridge Street, Castries.

The man expressed shock at the manner in which the police dealt with the report because he believes that his phone could have been recovered and the bandit arrested for the crime he committed.

He is still hopeful that he could get the assistance he needs in locating his phone. The phone is registered with LIME. The model number is SAMSUNG-SGH-I717 and the IMEI/MEID number is 35201305028.

  5. I don't believe that those were the esact words said to the victim. Who knows the female officer was the only one at the office at the time because the other officers were attending another report. Like I said who knows, but none of my business. I feel sorry for the RSLPF URL REALLY TAKING FROM THE PUBLIC E

  6. Years ago and now...technology advances daily. Maybe they couldnt do anything years ago....bet they can now. You guys are way ahead of Canada with cell phone technology...believe. No automated top up machines here. Ay least I haven't seen any.

    • Way ahead of Canada you say? if that's true then out local mobile companies have limited our access. I know in Canada the mobile companies allow their customers to logon and perform a variety of "Self Service" functions including REMOTE WIPE.

  7. I feel sorry for the victim. My house was burglarized and after they came and looked around they asked me the same question "Miss what do you want us to do?" I was just as disgusted then as I am now... I simply looked at the cop and said..."uhhhh ... Find my stuff and the person or persons who stole it! Police you need to change your MO and start protecting and serving!

  8. Ok, so CID goes to Bridge Street, one of the main thoroughfares on our tiny island, and asks avery citizen to show their phones because someone's phone got stolen and they might be the culprit. It might just be one of you commentors on here. First things, y'all will say, is police violating y'all rights, but on here police lazy and shit. Yes, there are a few bad apples, but the majority TRY to do their jobs honestly and earnestly.
    And FYI, before y'all people judge the police, do some research on what a real "one-armed bandit" is. And secondly, that IMEI # is short a few numbers. Third, if he didn't want the information published, he shouldn't have given it to the media.....
    Damn people, let's think before we start lambasting the police and each other

  9. The cop's response is of poor taste. The lease she could have done is to promise to look into the matter. Give the man some hope. This is why he called in hopes to recover his property. Start by asking for the number and at least dial the damn thing.

  12. I recall a young lady lamenting at the questions ask of her , when she reported her cell stolen , how can she afford an I phone, she told them
    A gift from her boyfriend , the want to know where he working how much his making etc . Nothing specific about the phone .. Smh some person needs to leave their personality at home and at work adopt a profferssional attitude or else . It a joke ! Mind you there are hard working cops .. But .. I
    Blame the powers that be !

  14. It takes one bad mango to spoil the rest I and really wish Mr scholar could be reincarnated, because the boys and girl scouts running law enforcement in st.Lucia its a very big and honest job.

  15. But say one say two, some of citizens know how the streets are after hours dem days, ppl take taxi to go at ull home, these are one of the reasons i dont go out anymore, if a taxi cant drop me directly infront my door, I AM STAYING HOME, for real, and jus avoid all this shit.

  16. Unbelievable! "What I expect them to do for me?" Really? This is real bulls shit from the St.Lucia police force. Her ass must have been entertaining one of her many men when the call came in. Two words for you officer, USELESS and INCOMPETENT. Some day you jack offs will be caught in the cross fires and it may very well be those same citizens who cried out for help who may assist you all. Unfortunately plenty of us St. Lucians will stand by and watch.
    Yall idiots need to keep in mind yall work for the country and not yourselves. And without our assistance a lot of yall cases would go unsolved. But then again so many always get swept under the rug. SHAME ON YOU OFFICER; YOU DON'T DESERVE TO WAR THAT BADGE.

  17. To be fair that man is talking crap if the phone's last location was bridge street (public heavy traffic area) you expect the police to search everyone for you or run to every public location your phone show up. They will go to a private residence or an office with you to investigate if you have proof of the phone being at that location other than that it is a waste of time. Also that IMEI is missing a few numbers should be 15 digits.

    • Well he did say he was robbed @ 3am,so maybe he checked the location while @ home around just after the robbery.Not too busy on the Bridge street around that time I'd think.

  18. That is what these officers at CID give to us citizens. Then they expect us to respect them and support them when THEY need assistance. Nothing strange it's the same WPC I got when my vehicle was broken into. These particular lackadaisical officers are making the real ones who work hard for the country look like fools. If you don't know a body within the force then whole chouyw pas bon!

    • No they wont help. My phone was stolen years ago and LIME did nothing to assist me. That's why I will never buy another phone from LIME.
