The arrest of a suspect in the near fatal armed robbery of the L’Escargot restaurant owners is welcome news and sends the right signal throughout the community. Even though the crime happened nearly 2 years ago doesn’t mean it was forgotten by police. They never stopped trying to bring the perpetrators to justice.

The suspect, of course, is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, but given the overall track record of the police so far, a conviction is likely.

We’ve written about his topic before. There can be no prosperity in any society if there is no concrete security, upon which everything else can be built. It is always tragic when restaurateurs like the Morands, who have been culinary ambassadors of the island since 1972, and who have helped establish St. Maarten as a premier tourist destination, fall victim to an unsolved and senseless crime.

Hopefully, with this arrest, the two other suspects can be found and brought to justice as well; for the Morands, and for St. Maarten.
