Jah Cure’s hotel room burglarised; artiste loses Rolex watch, chain

Jamaica reggae artiste Jah Cure says his Rolex watch and a chain was stolen from his Fort Young hotel room last night.

“It was unconditional disappointment, not unconditional love for me,” Cure said on Mat in the Morning radio interview today. “It was in my bag in the hotel room and it was supposed to be safe.”

The reggae superstar said his room was accessed at 7:44 pm last night with a master key while his entire entourage was on stage.

“It had to be somebody that work here. It’s very unfortunate. It is something that has never happened before,” Cure said.

Police are investigating the matter, having questioned several individuals at the hotel last night.

“I still love Dominica and I will return here,” he said, while calling for any assistance from the public to aid the police in their investigation in the recovery of his “favorite jewelery”.

Jah Cure was one of the headline performers at last night’s culmination of the 14th World Creole Music Festival at the Windsor Park Stadium.

Heavy police presence was visible at the Fort Young Hotel last night. Hotel management says they are working tediously to have the matter resolved.

    Thats really sad. And please dont lump all Jamaicans together, just as there are good and bad Dominicans, there are good and bad Jamaicans. Luciano is a great man and he loves Dominica thanks for not robbing him.Hope he is welcome back. As they say some people so greedy they will steal a fly off your plate!

      Anybody can leave their things anywhere in a hotel room.It is their room and they paid for it .
      If there is a disclaimer sign then Cure is wrong but he should receive maximum security especially for a guest performer if there wasn’t a sign

    Well, this is a big shame and disgrace for the Island of Dominica. The hotel has to see to it that all their guests are properly taken care of and especially when you have world renouned artists and very likeable ones at that . There should be proper security at all times.When a person is an artist there is a lot of hard work that it entails, lots of sleepless nights voice training etc. The guy works hard to acquire what he has. He was behind bars for years and now he is enjoyiing the finer things in life. Don’t be haters. Dominica is a beautiful country and the people are very warm and hospitable . I do hope that he recovers his belongings and this mishap does not spoil the good name of Dominica. Ok people, ONE LOVE GUYS. We need unity and love.

    I just wonder if you guys are going to be as eager to apologise for your unkind remarks on this blog if the perpetrator is discovered?
    Will you be quick to issue an apology for your presumptiousness?
    Why are you so eager to defend Dumbinican criminals? is that now the expectation and the norm?
    A nation of thieves and sooteeways?
    The thieving is endemic and has to stop.
    Why are some Dumbinicans so quick to judge and jump down the throat of victims?
    Can you all not be a little bit more objective and respectful of others feelings?
    Do you not realise that what you write here could tilt the balance for someone considering visiting the country perhaps as a tourist? or do you now no longer see the wood for the trees.
    What kind of people have you become?

    @MRS JOHNi kinda agree with you tho
    from the time i read the headlines someway somehow i kinda felt the same way
    i am not use to accusing anybody (which i am not trying to do now sorry) but after living away for so long i kinda don’t trust other people trying to give DOMINICA a bad name
    i don’t know this man or anything about him but i love my D/A so much and the only way i can relieve myself is not to believe that this happen
    sorry i might be wrong and i know that a lot of people, dominicans and all, really do bad things but knowing how we dominicans are a proud people i don’t think that anyone would do that on purpose
    sorry if anyone is offended by my comments tho:

  28. Always an optimist
    November 2, 2010

    1)
    to the people saying that Fort young should repay Jah cure for his stolen jewellery, I think that is unfair. If he had put the jewellery in a safe place like the deposit box maybe it would not have been stolen, n if it were to be stolen from the safety deposit, then the hotel should be responsible. He signed the security waiver when getting his room key right? I also do think that out of sincerity and good hotel management, he probably should be some what compensated because the incident happened to occur at the Fort Young Hotel. Whom soever committed the crime be it employee or guest at the hotel should be justly dealt with. If the room was entered with a master key.. only few ppl have access to master keys.. only a handful worked that night.. do the math.. its not that hard!
    2)
    If it was my watch n jchain that was stolen would anyone give a ratz behind? I feel sometimes that we as human beings practice to much idolatry. So just because the robbery happened to Jah cure, he should be treated differently from everyone else? I sure as well will not get my 100 dollar baq 4 my imitation rolex would I? I wouldn’t even make the nightly news, nor mat in the morn.
    3)
    I am def not trying 2 b negative, but we must look at all sides of the story. when I read this article I was alarmed, and disappointed that someone would come to perform for us and someone would do such a thing. Thinking rationally as some other people have already stated… Did anyone other than cure n his entourage see him entering the country matter fact the hotel with said jewellery? if so is there picture evidence? I love Jah Cure, I have is albums, I am a fan.. but I do not know his character, I don’t know him personally, so I would hope that he is telling the truth. (when a child is murdered the first suspect is the family) everyone is a suspect.
    Further more, he said he would return to D/ca, so let us try to move on and congratulate him for his wonderful performance.

    dominican comon open your eyes befor you start to judge this guy is not telling the truth and we must stop givening out selves and country a bad name we are too quike to do so . i do think that jah cure plan this whole thing .first he was in the park then said he wants something to eat he makes his way back to the hotel why didnt he take his watch with him why dint he not put it in the safe that was provided for him in the hotel room why didnt he leave it in the vault at the front office , how did he know at the time it was missing wen he was not in his room . did he show he let it in his bag . why wasnt the other stuff like his camara rings bb phone and other stuff was not take if it was a thief it all does not make no sence to me at all he jah cure had to perfurm else where but was ask to stay back for sunday night so he figue that he need to make some more money for that and that he would not have gotten it from d f c so he planed and cooked up that story but i hope the pot burns on him for giveing for young hotel a bad name dont worry you jah cure will be caught

    November 1, 2010

    Please people be careful what you say on the internet because the world is watching. We should all apoligise to jah Cure And quite juding him. Nothing more than probable one of the Hotel employee saw him wareing his watch at the Hotel. And Probable Monitor him leaving without it. decided to enter the room to search for it stoled it after he left for the show .Thiefs are very smart. Some employees just have Sticky Finger .If no force entry,someone did use a key to gain access to his hotel room. the hotel should investigate there employees. check Jah Cure waring an expensive watch at most of his concerts. type in. What it take/To your Arms of Love Jah Cure in Amsterdam. On google. Youtube. Check his concert in costa rica, in Paris, polland. And a few other other countries jah Cure Is a Very good Artist .He’s well Loved. By all those who hear him sing. He could very Much afford a Rolex. He Proble didn’t feel like wearing it that night. We have to consider he is a victim of a crime. Robbery. Shame on this Person for Stealing Jah Cure Watch. i hope this person get caught. That Theif isTrying to make Our nice hotel and our lovely Island look bad. It’s just not nice.

    if this was a crime , then it’s very easy to solve, the only persons who have access to master keys are the hotel managers, the maids has a different key where they can only access the rooms they are suppose to clean which is usually done during the day between the hours of 9 am and 3pm, they also has to sign there name and signature, the time they recieve the key and the time they return it in order to recieve that key. outside companies such as exterminators has access to the master key because they has to spray all the rooms, but they also has to sign name, signature ,time in an time out in order to recieve that key and usually they are accompanied by a security guard,which is also done during the day. so if cure’s statement is true, then the hotel could tell exactly who used the key an what time they used it. the hotels also make it known to there guests that they won’t be resposible for lost or stolen items, its pointed out to every guest and its written in the rent contract. that’s why they always advise guest to make use of the safety deposit box in the room which they have to pay extra to recieve the key or code for that box.
    mr.cure is no saint , remember he was onced jailed for robbery/raped is his own country j/a, so don’t be supprised if this is just a stunt to get his insurance to pay for the rolex, every legal rolex owner in the world is rquired get insurance, can’t buy a vehicle from a dealer and drive it out the lot without insurance , same goes for a rolex, cant get out of the store without insurance, all rolex has a serial number which matches the owner. mr.cure has to present the papers of the rolex and picture of him wearing the rolex in dominica and have the police search all his entourage including him before i could blame my people.
    every artise comes on stage with there jewery and at a point in the show they hand over jewelry hats etc to a member of there antourage on stage. furthermore if you are coming to dominica with a watch and not planning to wear it, then what,s the point of bringing it. why are you on stage with a fake watch while the other valuable one is just lying around in some hotel room.check the facts people. mr.cure is looking to claim some insurance money or one of his entourage took it cus he didn’t pay them, dno cud tract my ip address , i don’t mind, i will say it on live tv if i have too, i will even say it on re tv if they let me. don’t let cure’s voice full us , the guy is a former raper/robber.
    again check the facts before we point our fingers on dominicans or anyone else for that matter.

Remember the weather wasnt the best no sensible person wears a rolex in rainny weather so he would always leave it at the hotel but he should have secured it. Its unfortunate , for jah cure its a loss if its not insured for the hotel its a negative to their credibility.Let’s hope things work out for both jah cure & fort young.Officer do your jobs

Were’nt there people guarding the hotel and his hotel room whilst he was gone? Aren’t there survelliance cameras at the hotel to see who went into his room at anytime during his stay in Dominica?
    Choops!!!! The man just trying to get attention after he refused to let his songs be heard over the radio, like somebody was going to steal his songs or he would have to pay the committee back some money if his songs were aired over the radio. . So he aint satisfied with what they gave him he trying to accuse people of stealing his stuff just to get more money. Tell him go search his crew pockets and he will find his watch. And, if somebody really did steal his watch….SHAME SHAME SHAME ON THAT PERSON

    Jah cure , whoever the hell or whatever artist you are sound like a bloody actor . we’ve never had such occurring before nor report made in this regard . Kassav , T vice , Carimi , and many other international artist never had such . How long did the artist perform for question number one , what time he left his room ? Where was his watch stored ? now the big question is this , what time did he return to his room ? who did leave in his room ? if he was performing at the period he presumed he was performing on stage to an audience , how could he assume infact state clearly the rolex and chain was stolen at 7:44 ? i think the hotel gave the man some bad treatment and suchhe tried to make them feel bad thus leaving a bad rep for our already ruined image of D/ca . Jah cure D/ca may have criminals but J/ca is looked down and not wanted , with continuous deportations all over the world for criminal behaviors , ask Shabba , and elephant man , and Bennie man , and i know you know about your incident as well . go in peace , put your watch back on and chain cause you either didn’t have it or traded it as usual .

    Jah Cure,for your information,is a well known,well liked International Reggae artist…I don’t think he needs that kind of publicity,or would he fabricate that story….In fact he is on record saying who much he loves Dominica,and Dominicans….so go way wit you crabe,crabe, self…..!

Already we are learning that cruise liners are pulling out making the country even poorer. This is just going to add to our demise and trigger more hardship.

    @A canadian detective:

    Some people are too doubtful and will denounce everything. Please do not be so negative. Wait after the police completes their investigation and you hear the results. It is a possibility that his watch and chain were stolen. Some people do use the opportunity to steal.
    It is for this and other reasons that guns, other weapons, cigarettes and cigarettes lighters were prohibited from the grounds.
    Until I hear further, I will continue believing it.
    You call yourself a Canadian investigator? I reside in Canada and I could be an investigator. In fact I consider myself one. After considering the situation, I utilize my common sense and do not make rash judgments as denying that his property was not stolen.
    What makes you think he will make the organizers pay for them and what which they are not responsible for?
    If it is proven that someone or some people went into the room and stole them, then the Hotel is responsible for compensating him.
    If they are insured, the insurance company will be responsible for reimbursing him what they are worth.

Fact remains.. it is quite known that several artiste stash the real deal and rock their replicas when they are out among the general public, Beyonce has done it among others… so I don’t get the point of your “cross-examination” If it did happen shame on whoever did it.. It is quite embarrasing. if not, GOD will be Jah Cure’s judge

    I was expecting to here that the show was great but not a Thief steeling Jah Cure Rolex watch. I know how he must have felt. Coming Back to the Hotel room To find out that his stuff being stolen. Fort Young is a lovely Hotel And no one should be discoraged of coming there because of the incident. But Fort young should Question there employees on who had access to Jah Cure room . And That person should be fired immediately. I know not everyone like security cameras. But they need to install some cameras around the hotel rooms so that this incident do not occur again. Jah cure i deeply reget what happen. I’m One of his fans.And hope this incident don’t decorage him from coming to D/ca. Because the law don’t play with thievies. Dominica Is a lovely island with very low crime rate and alot of friendly people. Because This incident happen in D/ca I think Fort young Hotel and The Dominica Feast should send him a apolige letter and incouraging him to come back to Dominica at the next feast creole. My friend and I love you Jah cure please come again soon we will be in Dominica for next year feast.

    Many hotels now have a key pad sensor that registers back to a databank that lets them know when a room was accessed – especially if the room has an electronic card reader. So, the answer to your questions is yes. A hotel can tell you precisely when a person accessed a room. i know. I have a friend that installs hotel electronic locks.

    November 1, 2010

    The news of theft at hotels the world over is not new. hotels without inroom safety deposit boxes usually advise their guests to deposit jewellery and other valuables at the front desk for safe keeping. That being said it is very sad to see that this act of theft was commited in Dominica against a guest of the the Dominica Festivals Committee whose presence on island helped to draw the thousands of patrons who attended the World Creole Festival. It is even more sad that the act of theft was commited at Dominica’s most prestigious and signature hotel; THE FORT YOUNG HOTEL. How sad for the management and staff who must now engage in damage control since such news can damage the reputation of the Hotel and its managment and staff as trustworthy and property as a safe and secure property.

    I am calling on the authorities to undertake a very thorough investigation and ensure that the culprit is dealt with severely. I trust that the gentleman’s valuables and recovered and returned for the good name of the hotel and itsd management and staff and the people of Dominica. We cannot afford this negative publicity since it presents us as being unsafe as a destination.

    Look at the facts. The man is on stage performing with a fake watch and no goldchain. Why on God’s earth would anyone leave a Rolex watch and a gold chain in a bag at a hotel and present himself to perform with a fake replica? Dominicans look at the facts… The man did not lost anything. He just wants a compensation from the orgainising committee and to give Dominicans a bad name. Moreover he might be looking for some publicity… Never knew who he was until today. Ask your CID department to run a criminal check on him and see what you come up with …

    Jah Cure is a world renowned artist, meaning he has travelled the world. I fail to believe that he does not know that any where he travels he is a target, it may not be for robbery only, therefore he should take every precautionary method to ensure that his favourite pieces are secure. BTW, why would you travel with your favourite pieces and not wear them? Doesn’t he have security safety boxes in his country? Some of our hotel do have them. I am not one to say that he is lying or not, but if he is, then Jah go crail him, if not, then I hope his tsolen items are retrieved and returned. He should know that nowhere is safe, therefore just like how he guards his life, he should do the same to his jewelry which he treasures so. He should have entrusted it in the hands of his bodyguard. Probably though he did not want to wear it to perform, lest it got lost? well just assuming. But one word of advice to the general public. Learn to see people’s thing and cut it eyes, you have no idea the lengths they may have had to go through to get it. Leave people’s things alone.

Would you want others pointing fingers at you? Sometimes, we tend not to be able to trust others based on our own shortcomings. The good thing is those insensitive comments are in the minority.

    @Crabfest:

    Common sense is required here. If there was no break and entry and the door and window were not broken into then it appears that it may have been an inside job. Who else could have acquired a lock to enter the room unless the occupant was allowed to keep the keys when he went out and gave it to another who probably in turn had a key made and was able to go into the room to steal the objects?
    Furthermore, are the keys to the rooms not handed to the receptionist whenever the occupant leaves the hotel be it for the day or evening? Then when the occupant returns he/she goes to the receptionist desk and requests the key to the room. They must check in and check out and vice versa. Please correct me if I erred and if this is no longer practiced.
    If none of these are correct, then, it appears it is an inside job committed by someone who had access to the key and room. The police investigators need to look into these.
    It should be embarrassing to Dominica and its law-abiding people that such a thing occurred at a reputable hotel as Fort Young.
    It is not good advertising for Fort Young. This theft could cause visitors to Dominica, to a certain degree, some uneasiness and distrust for Fort Young Hotel and its employees.
    Fort Young Hotel is in a good location in the heart of Roseau. I am a town person and love residing/staying in town, in the heart of everything. If per chance I had no place to reside when I visit, it would be one of my preferential hotels that I would choose on my next Dominican vacation/visit.
    I do hope a proper investigation will be conducted and that the owner(s) of Fort Young Hotel will ensure that thefts do not occur at this hotel. Otherwise, as news travel and quickly worldwide, it will lose a lot of business. Its reputation will be tarnished and people as Travel Agencies will not recommend it. I am one who recommends a good, reputable, safe place to visit and to stay while on vacation.
    Allow the investigation to be conducted. After this is completed, I do hope that Fort Young will issue not only an apology to Jah Cure but also to assure everyone and prospective visitors who may utilize its services and recommend its Hotel, no exception Travel Agencies worldwide.
    Prior to employing staff, Fort Young should conduct a proper investigation of staff, their credibility and credentials.
    Fort Young’s continued, success, progress and reputation are at stake. It obviously cannot control the stealth urge of people but it can provide a deterrence and to ensure the Dominican visitors who are its customers that it is at least doing its utmost to curb thefts and to make their stay at its Hotel a relatively safe one.
    I do know that DON will be keeping its users/readers informed. Thank you DON. This is why I access your Website. I do love and appreciate your Website, providing us with up-to-date information which makes us especially those abroad closer to Dominica and to even love our country better and want what is good for it.

    I feel very badly about this whole incident .
    I am also not sure whether Matt was giving Jah Cure the assurance that the case will be solved before he leaves state today .
    I think that the police should be the one making the report official ..NOT a Talk Show …with all its sensational accompaniments .
    The troublesome thing is , to verify Jah Cure’s story … The question is , if the hotel was not informed of these major items officially , how does the hotel genuinely accept responsibility for the loss .
    The whole story is bad for DA , Ft Young , And all Dominicans .

And they were not cheap hotels. I am still wondering why Jah Cure didn’t use a safety deposit box? This is almost standard in all hotels these days.

    What Fort Young has to do is go into damage control mode full time and sort this out as soon as possible. In all it gives a bad name to the hotel and Dominica on a whole.

    First of all if that was his favorite jewellry why wasnt he wearing it at the show. It would have been on his arm not at the hotel.. Why wasnt an expensve piece of jewellry like a rolex left in a hotel safe? HOw was he so sure his whole entourage was on stage, how did he know it was a master key being used why couldnt it be his key. That story dont sound to right. If someone did infact stole that watch where are they going to wear it to. This is dominica who walks around with a US $ 25000 watch they stole or maybe they didnt know the value. All in all stars are well known to claim stuff lost at hotel to get the hotel to pay for stuff they never had in the first place. SO before we blame fort young employees or Dominicans please police re interview Jah Cure. That story is full of holes

    I was looking forward to a positive report on Sunday’s performances at the Creole Festival given all the back and forth about Saturday’s cancellation/ postponement. Instead, I am greeted with a burglary that is sensationalized by the news media ( Matt, DNO, etc.). Where are the positive stories about the success of the festival?

    Furthermore, hotels around the world have policies about leaving jewelry and cash in hotel rooms. Otherwise, any guest could claim that their stuff was missing. That’s what safety deposit boxes are for. It’s a shame such a thing had to happen, but it is not unique to Dominica.

    I however enjoyed his performance and the festival in general despite the fact that I didnt get to see Krosfyah…but congrats to T Vice, WCK and my girl Claudette from Antigua…

    I hope the police finds the perpetrator/s of this theft…thanks DA…I love ur country bad, bad..

    How does Jah Cure know its a “master key” that opened his room. Couldn’t it be another duplicate?In any event it had to be done by somebone whknows about the hotel, keys, movemnet of security staff etc. Well if it is propven that the Hotel’s key was used (not properly secured) to perpetrate that crime, then the Hotel will have to pay – more public relations. But then all hotels have poicies in place re the security of ones property, to include invaluables lie Rolex watches. Jah Cure more than anyone else should know.

    Be that as it may. It’s rather unfortunate. Dominica could do without such negative media.

    this is a shame not on the hotel but on the staff who cant be trusted

    i live in europe and sometimes i leave my house open so that maintenance can be carried out on eg electricity, water or appliances

    i have never had any one stealing any thing

    its just a matter of trust and if employees cant be trusted then who can

    i say fire the person/s who did this

    If D/a police are worth their weight this should be easy enough to solve…Who had access to the room at the time, and do those persons have an alibi?

    Only problem is even if its solved the damage to the reputation of the hotel has already been done.

    It is amazing how such a beautiful little island filled with warm loving ppl can be home to some evil, cold hearted, wicked people. Cure gave us a breath taking performance last night, a wonderful show he put his all into it and it showed, and as a reward this is what he receives? to be robbed? Come in we need to do better than this…. This is reflected bad on fort young and Dominica on a whole. not even in the comfort of a hotel room are one’s prized possessions safe? Nah man we have to be better we must! GIVE CURE BACK HIS JEWELRY!!! it is not urs..

    CURE we sincerely apologize plz know that this was an isolated incident, and the ppl responsible will be punished!… the ppl of Dominica apologize for this and thank you for a wonderful performance

    Hello…!!!??? It does not take brain surgery to figure out who has access to the master key. And for all the upgrade to the hotel you would think a security camera or two would have been placed in strategic areas. Well Jah Cure…I would like to apologise on behalf of my people and give you the following options: (1) do not return to Dominica to perform (2) if you do return do not stay at the Fort Young Hotel (3) wear all your jewelry on stage and carry all your money and travel documents with you. Please do not choose (1) because we love you too much. Thanks for a great performance!

    November 1, 2010

    All you not tired of shaming Dominica? Bring back the man things NOW! If he doesn’t get it back, Fort Young should buy it back! If the employees dont want to fess up here’s what to do:

    Since a Master Key was used, deduct money from EVERY employee salary until the man Rolex and chain paid for! That is just shameful!

    If the perpetrator is found, make them wear a sign saying:

    “I stole the Cure’s Rolex, and gave him unconditional pain! I’m sorry and will now give him unconditional love.” then parade them on Bayfront, Marpin and SAT

    This is where fingerprinting comes in.
    Shame indeed for Fort Young Hotel. This is also giving Dominica in general a bad name.
    An employee or some employees are responsible for the thefts. The employees who have access to the master key should be investigated. I would not rule out firing them. This is sheer lack of love, consideration and negligence.
    I have always viewed Fort Young Hotel as a reputable Hotel. Whoever has done that or those people who have done that, their employer, Fort Young Hotel is given a bad name, not only locally but internationally.
    The Seventh Commandment of God is: Thou shalt not steal.
    The Ten Commandment is: Thou shalt not covert thy neighbor’s goods.
    In case you do not comprehend the word “neighbor”, our neighbor is any and everyone whom we know and meet. Also, whether we know them or not – are strangers.
    Thieves! Return the stolen goods which do not belong to you.
    If you ever expect God to forgive you, it is imperative that you return the stolen goods and make restitution. Otherwise, consider where your eternal lot will be.
    Cease stealing! Seek employment and do good! There is no excuse for stealing.
    Jah Cure is a visitor and his belongings should not have been stolen. He worked for what he possesses. It never belonged to you and IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU RETURN IT! OTHERWISE, PREPARE TO RECEIVE THE PUNISHMENT OF GOD, SOONER OR LATER!
    Pay heed Dominican hotel employers!

    If I was the manager of Fort Young.. I would release a public apology through all media means to Jah Cure and offer a generous compensation for his lost and pain in the process… And I will inform the public of upgrading the security measures and assure future guest that they will find it safe here. I will also investigate that individual and ensure that the message is pass to all… but I’m not, so this is my opinion….

    Wow! What a bunch of fols to do something like that. The man brought pure love to DA and that is how is was repaid. The WCMF should buy the man back his watch, yesterday. I was planning to go to DA with my family and friends and stay at Fort Young Hotel due to the fact that, I was told it is safe. Hell No! After this, Hell No!
