THG News (Oct. 31, 2016) — If you’ve been following us on social media, particularly Facebook, you would know by now that it was a busy weekend for officers attached to the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force (RSNPF).
On Sunday, the Force, through its Public Relations Unit, issued a release calling for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who was seen on video surveillance and is believed to be connected to a crime.
According to the release, “the individual is a person of interest for larceny from an unattended vehicle” which was parked on Fort Street in Basseterre, St. Kitts between 12.30 and 1.30am on Friday, October 28, 2016.
Meantime, police officers were involved in a high speed chase which ended in Half Moon Bay when two men were reportedly apprehended.
According to an eyewitness’ account, the “chase started in Frigate Bay…later they ended up in Half Moon and police, using one of their cars, pushed the car over a hill and the car crashed.”
That event happened on Sunday.
Perhaps the biggest shocker last weekend was when a Kittitian couple, owner of a security firm, was shot on Friday night during a robbery at Wellington Road.
According to the RSNPF, they were making a night deposit, at approximately 7pm, when the incident occurred. The female died while undergoing treatment at the hospital.
Also last weekend, there were reports of at least two stabbing incidents: one on St. Kitts and one on Nevis. There is no word on the status of either victim.
In the final crime-related report coming out of the weekend, police have charged 30-year-old Dwight “Mac 11” Jacobs with the murder of Marlon “Mabo” Mills. He was also charged with wounding with intent.
