Nassau, Bahamas — Attorney Eliezer Regnier of Regnier Eliezer & Co is that lawyer who will be arraigned before a magistrate this afternoon for possession of stolen items.
Bahamas Press has learned that over the weekend, police raided the lawyer’s western New Providence home and discovered cash loads of stolen items inside. The items included: Breitling watches, Gold Rolex and Cartier watches, tons of jewelry, diamonds and jems. Police also found inside one area of the home scores of flat screen TV sets [LG and Panasonic models]. Computers, cameras, home appliances and electrical supplies, Regnier had it all.
BP’s deep throat on the Royal Bahamas Police Force just minutes ago confirmed that Regnier’s home looked like a of cave of lost treasures. “One room in the house was stock to the ceiling with stolen property, it must be the largest bust of stolen items we’ve see ever in the country’s history!”
Regnier is a Bahamian, who emigrated from Haiti at age 6 with his parents. His roots lay deep inside the mountains of Haiti with one suggesting connections with the Haitian government. Police believe the items were about to be shipmented to Haiti for sale in several shops owned by Regnier in Por-au-Prince.
Police held his wife, daughter and son at the beginning of their investigations, however, they were all later released. In a 2003 interview with Cox News reporter, Gary Kane, Regnier said, “[Haitians] come to The Bahamas because it is better than Haiti economically.”
