Their seems to be a lull in crime now,however when we vacationed in sxm Easter week, their were two individual shoot outs. One in downtown Philipsburg One at the Atlantis casino. In broad day light.both had the same mot is operandi. Two individuals on motor bikes. One yielding a machete,the other a shotgun.
If you really want to get a bead on crime in sxm, access the Daily Herald online. p.s.:when the restaurant proprietors state the crime is getting worse.crime is getting worse.MHO.
