Amazing moxie by the victim and great job by the gendarmes to capture the creeps!

Suspects in court this morning LINK

Good deal and also good both sides of the island appeared to work together in this. That is a LOT of cash to have laying around.

The victim told the story on Facebook from his perspective. Sounds like a terrifying experience. Glad for the quick thinking of BJ and good response from gendarmes.

Suspects transferred to Guadelupe LINK

Justice on the French side certainly seems to move a lot more quickly than the Dutch side.

It wasn't laying around. They were doing their payroll, which seems to be in cash. Someone knew.

Probably the case, but that still seems like a lot of cash to have on hand at any given time. No idea how their pay methods work but "routine" when it comes to banking (or lack of) makes for an easier target.

The DH article says that “we have had a lot of temporary daytime workers to pay, ”
Probably the reason for cash.
