UPDATE: Suspects in Sandals Halcyon attack released


The three men who were arrested in connection with the Sandal Halcyon attack have been released.

Police Public Relations Officer Aniel Innocent told St. Lucia News Online today that the suspects were released over the weekend.

However, Innocent said one of the men were charged with the possession of marijuana.

SNO understands that a notorious criminal was among the three men held in custody in connection with the July 18 armed attack.

It is alleged that the man could have been the mastermind for several other robberies over the years.

Reports are that armed men stormed the accounts office of the hotel and held up a female employee.

No one was injured in the attack and no cash was stolen.

Police nabbed the suspects minutes after the crime.

  1. Why can't we st Lucian get facts right before we wright our ignorant comments? Lets act like intelligent human beings like we are. You are innocent until proven guilty. Not by word of mouth but concrete evidence

  2. Saint lucia has no laws, stop trying to be like england or America, if saint lucia is independent like people say it is why is the country still have to answer to the queen of england or why is it our money isn't been print here this is some of the questions we lucians have to ask our self. its time the government come together and set laws for this country if not kiss our nice country good bye. When you telling me three men who were armed with guns held up a female employee and with attempted robbery that's is already 30 jail time and you'll let them go what whould happen if they had help up one of the guest or shot one of them then what. Stop killing our country and what it stand for

  4. UPDATE: Notorious criminal among suspects held for Sandals Halcyon attack
    SNO - Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014 at 3:20 AM

    Ok, if he/she is such a Notoriuos criminal per the article headline on July 22nd 2014, why are they now free to roam the streets of St Lucia. Unless you kill someone and is caught on camera in the act, then and only then will there be a conviction. Hope law enforcement in St lucia know the type of message being sent to the general public and people around the world when they read stuff like this.

  5. Am hot here comparing, cuz we do not have adequate resources, but...

    Once, my uncle (from London), left 20 pounds on his kitchen counter for his helper with instructions as to what to do with the 20 pounds. When she arrived at work the 20P was gone, she called my uncle and then the police was summoned. After 6 months, the police called my uncle to say they captured the person who broke into his house and stole the money - my uncle, at this time was not even aware what they were talking about, until they reminded him...of course...you know what happened to the scoundrel!!

    Sick of this freaking place!! No justice, no anything!!

  6. Boy, this place is a joke - caught red handed then subsequently released. On what grounds were they released? They were not guests at Sandals, what the hell were they doing on private property? Isn't there even a law for trespassing? Didn't they cut the fence to get to reception and or accounting dept?

    The authorities are a BIG PART OF THE PROBLEMS.

  7. Next time they won't hold up a female employee, they'll hold up the guests instead.
    I thought tourism was our main industry.
