Sint maarten : Armed robbery at local casino

Several police patrols, detectives and the “Multi Disciplinary Team” were directed the Sonesta Great Bay Hotel at around 11.35 a.m. on Friday September 18th, to investigate and armed robbery which had taken place shortly before.

According to reports two unknown and armed men who were in the casino at the time threatened to use their weapons and succeeded in robbing the establishment and after committing their act fled the scene. It is still unclear how the suspect made their escape but with the little description of both suspects the investigating officers identified one possible suspect in the Sucker Garden area. When the suspect noticed that he was pursued by police he tried to flee in a gold colored SUV.

The suspect was chased by the officers and in that process shots were fired by police. The suspect fled on foot in the direction of the “Sint Maarten Zoo” leaving the SUV behind. A search of the area by several officers including the K-9 unit however did not lead to the capture of the suspect. During a search of the SUV in question considerable amount cash was found and confiscated for further investigation. Both suspects thus far remains at large and the police department is asking anyone who may have any information concerning this case to get in contact with the police department via the tip line # 9300 or 54-22222 ext. 203, 204 or205.

This investigation is still in its early stages and as more information becomes available the media will be informed.
