  1. When will the officer that stole from the credit union be charged?

    Stratcom, that larceny was not taken seriously?

    How many police force in Antigua really?

  2. What got into this man. To do such a hideous thing. After 40 years being in Law Enforcement. You seem to throw it all away. For what? Now you could end up without a Pension and in Prison. If found guilty and be discharged from the Force.

  3. They place bun dun nuttin left not even money or the safe so what is this blaming police for money this is all insurance this society just don’t know how to think well Gaston have the whole island like fools but it’s ok

    • What does “Gaston” have to with this matter. Clearly you already sound foolish so you don’t need “Gaston” help in that department. You greedy self take all the foolishness for your own self.

  4. How can someone steal money when the whole place is burned,If you all want him out of the force.There are other ways to get that done.The truth must prevail

    • If you owned property that burned flat and you have employees, wouldnt you want at least that US$3,000?

      Someone that came to do their job, for which they are being paid by the state, should directly and illegally benefit off your misfortune??

      Suppose that could pay the employees a week or two weeks so they have some sort of cushion.

  5. Where Gaston come in to this?

    You missed the news where the same police said he was keeping it safe?

    There was a safe found and turned in but only half the money was recovered.

    Y’all blame Gaston and the government for every thing.

  6. People if you all don’t know what to say or write stop you all nonsense saying what you do not know. you all sound like headless chicken without a brain.

  7. These kind of shenanigans are why we cant just dismiss Choksi alleging that police officers abducted him.

    We have all sorts in that force it seems. From newbies to 40 year veterans.


    Salt on the wound of already significant loss.

  8. See how quickly we get distracted so that the insurance company is thrown off the scent which the Police smelled on arrival – ARSON!

    Come on Police do the rest of the job quickly so you will not be as blind twice – Not knowing how the Indian left Antigua? Not knowing what happened to cause the fire and the missing Chinese man.
