5 dead in plane crash at St. Croix airport

By Ernice Gilbert, VI Consortium From St Lucia News Online

Police blocked the east entrance of the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport road on Thursday night, allowing first responders and investigators to respond to the site of a plane crash. The incident left all five occupants of the aircraft dead.

(VI CONSORTIUM) — A plane crash near the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport on Thursday night left all five occupants of the aircraft dead, The Consortium can confirm.

Police Commissioner Delroy Richards told The Consortium that the aircraft, a private chartered plane, took off from the St. Croix airport and soon after starting experiencing engine problems, with flames coming from one of its two engines. The pilot circled back and attempted to land at the airport, but the plane crashed in a field area near the runway, leaving all occupants, including the pilot, dead, Mr. Richards said.

The commissioner said the plane was a Baron-branded aircraft.

David Goodrich, commander of St. Croix Rescue’s extrication team, who was on the scene of the incident, told The Consortium that by the time they arrived on the scene, there was nothing they could do.

The plane included one member of the Stylee Band, however The Consortium will withhold the member’s name because next of kin notification still needs to occur.

The V.I.P.D. cordoned off the east and west entrances of the airport, only allowing in first responders. A medical examiner vehicle was spotted making its way to the scene, and a first responder at the crash site told this publication that emergency personnel were still investigating the incident at about 11:06 p.m. on Thursday.

The tragedy has cast a cloud of sadness over the territory, as the Stylee Band, currently one of the territory’s premier groups, is known to help carry the festival season, especially their performances during the Festival Village, j’ouvert morning and the parades.

And the news of the crash and the plane’s high-profile occupant sent a shock through social media, with thousands already mourning the unfortunate occurrence.

Another Cocaine Arrest at Cayman Islands Airport

The Collector of Customs Charles Clifford has announced the arrest of a 30 year old Caymanian male from the district of Bodden Town for Possession of almost two (2) pounds of Cocaine at the Owen Roberts International Airport. The male passenger was arrested following his arrival on a domestic flight from Cayman Brac on the morning on 5th December 2017.

Mr. Clifford said that this arrest was the result of a joint Customs and Royal Cayman Police Service operation. He said, “We have once again seen the advantage of our strategy to significantly increase joint operations with our partner law enforcement agencies such as the RCIPS and Immigration Department. On this occasion I wish to thank the RCIPS for their invaluable assistance with this operation and our dedicated Customs Officers for their professionalism, determination and focus.”

Assistant Collector of Customs Tina Campbell, who has responsibility for the Customs Narcotic Enforcement Team, said, “This is another fine result from the progress which is achieved when we work together. We expect more results such as this as we continue to strengthen our alliance to enhance border security efforts.”

Commenting on behalf of the RCIPS, Commissioner of Police, Derek Byrne, said, “Results like this only serve to strengthen the RCIPS’ commitment to working closely with our partner law enforcement agencies in order to increase the safety of these Islands. We are extremely proud of the role our officers played in ensuring the success of this operation.”

The investigation associated with this recent arrest is ongoing.
