The Royal Saint Lucia Police force has been commended by Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony, for its quick response to two recent incidents that sent shock waves through the island.
On Friday, April 12, 2013, Police reported that a man wanted in the connection of the murder of Krystal Felix, attempted murder of Yannick Sylvester, attempted murder of Nigel Actille and rape upon a female was apprehended in Castries.
The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has also reported that three men are in custody and will be charged for the robbery which occurred in Soufriere on Friday, April 12, 2013.
The Prime Minister has expressed satisfaction with the quick response and results of investigations by the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force and has emphasized the importance of cooperation by the general public to ensure that similar results are yielded in other ongoing investigations.
According to Dr. Anthony, “The Police have been relentless in their efforts to curb crime on the island and their efforts should not always go unnoticed. When the Police are able to gather intelligence which lead them to the arrest of suspects in the way that was done in these particular cases, it must be highlighted and commended.
The partnership between the Police and the general public is essential to building a safe community. I am pleased with the work of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force and the general citizenry, who worked together to ensure that the perpetrators of these heinous crimes were apprehended. It is my hope that we will begin to see similar results in other ongoing investigations as no crime should go unpunished. I urge the public to continue to support the Police in the fight against crime as we work towards a safer Saint Lucia.”
