PHILIPSBURG – The Prosecutor’s Office asked for 20 years in jail fully unconditional for the suspect Felix Floyd Crawford (38) born in St. Kitts. He is accused of committing 9 burglaries on St. Maarten between December 31, 2010 and October 21, 2015.
Among others, he burglarized the homes of former Chief of Police P. De Witte and former Minister D. Richardson.
He is also accused of committing five armed burglaries, attempted manslaughter against a police officer, threatening a 14-year-old boy, fencing and possession of an illegal firearm.
According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the arrest of F.F.C. meant that a “big fish” was caught. In 2015 alone, 28 armed burglaries were reported while thus far in 2016 only 2.
During those burglaries, F.F.C. used brutal force leaving several victims. He mainly stole jewelry, cash money, electronics such as mobile phones and expensive perfumes.
Media reports from Antigua indicate that F.F.C. is also sought there for a series of robberies and shootings.
The Court of First Instance will give its verdict on July 9. The victims will also have the chance to submit claims for damages suffered.
The Prosecutor’s Office also announced that by then it will submit an order to recover proceeds of crime. F.F.C. sold the stolen goods and earned money from it. “Crime does not pay,” the Prosecutor said.
