Has anyone heard about the robberies and arrests that have taken place on Bequia this past week? Is there any news about what's going on?

I haven't heard anything but will contact our friends.

Ladolcevita would be the one that would know. Heard anything?

We've been going for over 10 yrs and these reports always start spreading right as busy season starts. Never had any problems.

On island at the moment. Our understanding is that three guys from the mainland were arrested here earlier this week when acting suspiciously. Not sure anyone had actually burgled / robbed anything / anyone at that point.

I believe the police really need to be more proactive and not wait until houses are burgled, in most cases they know who the burglar(s) / suspect(s) are but do not try and keep them under their radar. It is a pity that such a beautiful and tranquil island like Bequia is having its credibility degraded by a few self-centred individuals.

I hope the situation improves!
