Police issues Statement on recent spate of larcenies and robberies

“During the months of April and May 2023, the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis recorded an up-tick in the number and frequency of robberies, larcenies, and thefts,” a release from the police says.




According to the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force (RSCNPF), it has been actively monitoring these developments, engaging strategic methods of operation and working diligently to curb this surge in criminal activity. So far, their efforts have not been in vain; two males namely: Akeem Sage and Prince Patterson have already been arrested and charged for a number of armed robberies committed in St. Kitts in April.




Based on a report from lawmen, there is an increase in large social gatherings, fetes, events, and festivals during the Summer months. This increase in socializing creates a number of conditions and situations in which criminals will feel the need to commit nefarious acts against law-abiding citizens and residents.




Such was the case on May 28th 2023 where multiple larcenies were committed while a number of unattended vehicles were parked on Reggae Beach situated on the South-east Peninsula.




The RSCNPF strongly urges the general public to be increasingly vigilant and careful when leaving their possessions unattended, particularly in instances where one has to leave their vehicle(s) unattended for extended periods.
