POLICE PRESS RELEASE – On Tuesday, July 29, 2014, a search warrant was executed on the premises of 20-year-old Kervin St. Ville of L’Abayee, Bexon.
During the search, an 8-mm pistol was recovered. As a result, St. Ville and two other occupants present at the residence were arrested.
On Wednesday, July 30, 2014, officers charged St. Ville along with 22-year-old Marvin Joseph of Morne D’Or and 29-year-old Shirleyann Smith of Vanard, Anse La Raye for possession of an unlicensed firearm.
Marvin Joseph was also charged with an additional offence of assault with dangerous weapon.
They are scheduled to make a court appearance before the First District Court in Castries on Thursday, July 31, 2014.
Meanwhile, in another police incident, about 11:20 p.m. on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, officers responded to a report of damage to motor vehicle in the Bois Patat, Morne Du Don area.
On the way to the scene of the alleged report, the officers intercepted an attempted robbery where armed men had caused an obstruction on both the Morne Du Don and Bois Patat roads with the apparent intent to rob the driver of another vehicle.
Both incidents appear to be perpetrated by the same suspects.
However, the suspects upon seeing police officers fled the scene into the nearby bushes. The officers gave chase and recovered a 12-gauge shotgun with one live round of ammunition and a dread lock wig.
