As investigations continue in the robbery at the Woodford Hill credit union which occurred on Thursday morning, the police have confirmed that they have recovered $35,000 of about $45,000 which was stolen from the vault. The lawmen also confirmed that one shot gun was used in the commissioning of the crime and a vehicle registration number PH372, which is now in police custody.

They reported earlier that a young man is nursing gunshot wounds at the Princess Margaret Hospital and two others are on run, as investigations into a robbery continued.

Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector John Carbon, reported that at around 8:20 am, three men robbed that credit union, armed with knives and guns.

He also confirmed that a large sum of money was stolen in the process but none of the staff members of that financial institution were physically hurt.

“Shortly after the incident, police intercepted a vehicle and during the interception one individual was shot by the police while the other two escaped. A large sum of cash was recovered in the vehicle,” Carbon reported.

He said the young man who was shot by the police is currently in stable condition at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

    Lennox and his Gang of UWpites and supporters say their is no work in the country and the country poor.One is left to wonder why the Haitians and others that come to the country can find work.Most of those persons are either self employed or gainfully employed some other way.Country poor but Lennox and his gang finds enough money from the very poor people living in the poor country to tour the US,UK,PARIS AND CANADDA.Remember all these countries carry a currency much higher than that of Dominca,To obtain 1 US$ YOU pay 3 EC$ etc.UWP is a wicked,jealous,greedy,lazy set of people.When they speak,they speak in rage and desperation.One can feel the malice and hatred in their voice and the wickedness on their face. They blame the Government for everything that goes wrong but you never hear them praise the Government when something is done right.All their talk is in the negative and never there to give a helping hand; yet they want to see positive things happen.The monies these Desparados are taking touring those countries would be of better use to the youths of the country.The same diaspora people they refer to as (DIE-ASS-POORER)are the very same ones they are going to asking for Donation and come down to vote for them.Dominicans are not Dom in a can as they as they think.Come election day the results will prove who is knotty or who is wise.

      ths state monies ministers have building houses for their little side girl friends why don’t they use that money to invest in the youths of the country..you acting like you not aware of such things happening. remember is the labour party that claim to be the party of the youths but their action speaks otherwise..

    My opinion is this – To save the poor tax payers money; (by that i mean, from what is remaining after the politicians take their portion) we should not waste more on these thugs. Their right hand should be cut-off (if they are right handed, or cut-off the left if they are left handed). No prison time should be given to them. By so doing, we would have spent less money on these parasite suckers.

      That is your opinion and not necessarily a fact. There have always been unemployment and there will always be unemployment in every country of the world.

      Certainly, not every unemployed person commits crime. That is terrible to paint every unemployed person with one brush.

      Do we know for sure that all those involved in the crime is unemployed and their unemployment is what lead them to commit the crime?

      You need to think before you make comments like that. I was unemployed for years and never stole anything from anybody. I lived close to a lady who planted lettuce in her backyard and she had customers coming to her house to buy. Why can’t they do the same. Just go by the market and pick up some old tomato to get the seeds. But that will not bring 45 thousand dollars. Some of them family have more than a back yard.

    “like the pal. rep for this area made a statement that wesly does not have crime, this was a few days after a young man was shot”

    Well, Power boy, or Wesley Power House, remind Gloria Dodds (Dods) Shillingford the parliamentary representative that the son of Marie Leslie, my sister who was found with his throat slashed murdered is her cousin; since the murdered man called her late father Jonathan Dods uncle also, just as my sister, and I called him uncle.

    Remind her Vaughn Dods who was shot in the village is also the son of Becket who also called her father uncle, meaning Vaughn Dods (Dodds) is her cousin, and so too she called Becket’s father the late Andrew Dods uncle.

    As well as me mother late mother Yvonne Dods is (was) she aunt also.

    Remind her about Claudette and all the others found dead in the village, if she lost some memory, remind her of how many people Kenneth Telemaque found dead at intervals next to his house at Eden Road, I don’t thing Kenneth lives there anymore, but the last time I walked by there his children occupied the house.

    Remind her about Enoch Christmas, and others; gunned down in our village that’s as far as murder goes: but unless she has developed amnesia since she became a politician, remind her of all the thievery we experienced in the village daily, ask her if she recorded how many times my late father’s house was broken into, and his money stole.

    Ask her if she remembers Ali, which after a robbery she had a heart attack and died. I have not lived in Wesley for quite some time now, but if I am informed; her absents in the village when she lived at Goodwill should not prevent her form knowing about the high volume of crimes occurring in our village.

    Remind her of the people who borrowed money from the Credit Union and have not repaid the loan, that is know as stealing, and indeed a crime.

    Remind her that even my nephew the one you guys called Hansey (Bobboy), he is the only man in the village with a withered arm his name is McDonald Destouche, he is also Gloria’s cousin Marie is his mother. He lost more than a hundred thousand dollars in the credit union, (somebody thief it okay) , remind her that is a crime also!

        The news about my grand mother; remember you got that from me eh!

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

        I wrote that on DNO, I believe I wrote that on Cakafete also, and I had it on my Site Yvonnedods.com so everybody knows that and got it from. If you are going to throw that in my face, you need to also state, that I said long before my grandmother died, she called me home.

        At the time she was ninety-five years old; she talk to me taking me back to the day I was born, we spoke about everything, politics and all.

        The last words she spoke to me was “you been a very good child to me, very respectful, and did all you can to help me, as of this day; if we never speak to each other, nor see each other again, don’t worry about it, God bless you.” The next day I left, she lived another eight years and die at age 103 years old.

        I said the reason those sisters of mine did not communicate her death to me is because they were angry with me because my grandmother gave me all of her life belongs which was not much, just a few feet less an acre of land.

        My grand mother wiled that to me when I was seventeen (17) years old. I never had any interest, that is why I never build anything on it, not chicken shed, never mind a home, some of nieces and nephews are still angry with me because of that. Nevertheless, my last surviving sister by mother is living on it, I am helping her to survive there dies before me, I still will not have any use for that piece of land, maybe Mr. Hansey will do whatever he wants it after I am dead oui!

        Other than that the only other who seems to have any interest in it is my late brother Almour children in New York, I doubt they will ever return to Dominica to live; Rochelle wanted to build a vacation home there, she was not even born in Dominica, so I don’t know.

        If you are talking about ( me grandmother dead and me doh know, you doh saying anything to shame me, cause I doh have no shame.) Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

        You are not shaming me one bit, now if I and my grandmother did not agree that if we did not see or talk to each other after she summoned me home; not to worry about it, perhaps I would be depressed about her death, and the hell you are giving me here would have an effect on my psyche, but right now you have not touched a single vein in me the kid; Kid Francisco, I think I know who you are though.

        But what does the Bible teach; ” To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” It also teaches us to be happy when a love one dies, and be sad when our children are born.

        Have a nice day, no love lost.

      Everyone was not meant to work in an office. I can tell you (many people could), office work does not pay. You cannot really get rich working in an office. You work hard and especially these days, receive very little salary increase or none at all while the cost of living escalates including taxes.
      They could make much more money in agriculture, planting produce. There is pride in owning your own business and working on the land. There is also money in it especially growing fruits and vegetables including flowers. This is what it calls reaping the benefits of the fruits of their toil.

    Why are people blaming the government for all these criminals’ actions? Maybe it’s because the government is the one raising these kids? Why not blame these kids, their upbringing… for some of these issues. You mean because someone didn’t give you a job, does that mean you have to commit a crime to feed your greed? While government needs to do more to generate employment, they cannot be blamed for all of society’s ills. People need to take responsibility for their own actions.

    The escalating nature of crime is not just a Dominica issue… criminals are just becoming more bold, brazen, callous and senseless in their actions. It is a deterioration in the human condition. When we have these weaknesses in character and spirit in society, it creates a cesspool for demonic strongholds!

      thiny, this is questionable. How did they happen to escape? One simple thing the police could have done was to put a spoke in their wheel, i.e., to shoot at one of their tires or shoot at their legs. Police must shoot to maim; not shoot to kill, to prevent them from escaping. This would have immediately stopped them in their tracks. Too often they try to protect those criminals. Dominicans would have been happier if they were all caught.

      I do not think they did not have a get away plan. They are foolish. They should know that the streets are not meant for escaping just as Dominica is not meant for such a crime of an exorbitant sum of money. It is too bad the police did not catch the other two. They will be caught sooner or later.

      Put the blame where it belongs, on those thieves with wicked hearts who are too lazy and who do not want to work for their living. They probably were (are) disobedient and school drop-outs. They want big money which they did not earn; envious of the property of others. They are under the yoke of Satan. In other words, they are bad eggs who have no love and respect for their fellow people, who will go to any length to steal and in the interim could kill to get what they want. They deserve lifetime imprisonment.

      You impress me that you must be a criminal, condoning the crime the thieves have committed; that is a violent crime, any act of stealing which involve weapons such as guns and knifes is not considered a simple felony, how can you condone such crime in the country, and talk nonsense about crimes in Russia.

      What do you know about Russia?

      I’ll tell you what!

      In Russia, the thieves would be shot on sight, rather than the police getting killed, and before you ask what do I know about Russia, be informed that my youngest daughter is married to a Russian, and there are not many black Russians, he is not Black!

I started my own investigation learned from my late mother and caught the thieves . they got probation but one got four years for another robbery and the other had his head almost chopped off by a relative the young man who dropped in to open the window was never charged.

The police was called and my Cousin said that he has a suspect, because a young man had previously made such threats against his house. I was present when the two officers came to the home – no finger prints were taken and no arrest was made. I had just given my Cousin a brand new expensive wrist watch, which was also stolen. Now tell me, what are paying these police officers to do? eh? the damn government is to be blamed for the lawlessness that’s going on in our Country! you foolish guys are blaming TV and all that nonsense!
