Monday, December 18, 2017

Quick response by police officers led to the arrest of three bandits and recovery of cash stolen from a bar at Manzanilla yesterday.

The suspects are expected to appear before a Sangre Grande Magistrate today.

Police reported that around 1.20 pm, the two armed bandits held up bar owner Helen Jugmohan at the corner of Manzanilla and Plum Road. Two other men in the bar were also robbed.

They escaped in a waiting blue Nissan Almera car.

Manzanilla police, with the assistance of Sangre Grande CID officers, intercepted the vehicle a short distance from the bar. Three occupants of the vehicle were arrested and an undisclosed sum of money stolen from Junction Bar was recovered.

The suspects— whose ages range from 18 to 20— of Valencia and Macoya Settlement, Tunapuna, were arrested and charged with robbery with aggravation.
