Murder suspect arrestedPOSTED: 10/27/11 12:33 PM
St. Maarten – Police arrested and detained R.M. at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday as a suspect in the murder of the October 14th murder of Marlon Sebelon. Detectives have begun their interrogation and it is unclear whether M. is the only suspect as early reports indicate that it was two men on scooter, who showed up at the victim’s home on a scooter the day he was shot.
The deceased was shot in the head on the Umbrella Cactus Drive near the Seaman’s Club as he was leaving home to take his girlfriend to work. His death in the hospital later that day brought the number of murders for 2011 to 15.
Police say they spotted the suspect on Arch Road after they received calls he was in Sucker Garden. They also say he resisted arrest and tried to run when they approached him. The effort was in vain as several patrols had surrounded the area.
