Five Goldfinger robbers handed multiple jail sentences by court

MARIGOT—The court in Basse Terre in Guadeloupe on Tuesday sentenced the five individuals responsible for the Marina Royale Goldfinger jewellery store robbery on December 11, 2015, to various jail terms, from two years up to ten years.

On that day Goldfinger was attacked in broad daylight at 2:45pm by five individuals, two of whom were armed with an axe and a sledgehammer. They proceeded to smash the window showcases before stealing jewellery and notably several luxury watches.

The diligent investigation led by detectives of Brigade de Recherches enabled the five perpetrators to be rapidly identified and all five were arrested in mid-January 2016 and placed in detention in Guadeloupe.

K.C. was sentenced to seven years in prison with a committal order (mandat de dépôt) and a 10,000 euro fine, C.P. was sentenced to five years in prison with a committal order and an 8,000 euro fine; D.L. and M.S. were both sentenced to four years in prison with a committal order and 5,000 euro fines, and S.L. was sentenced to two years in prison with committal order.
