Angoy’s Avenue robbery… Two suspects detained, ‘positively identified’
Diligent work by ranks attached to the Central Police Station has lead to the capture of two men and two women who were believed to be part of a criminal gang.
The two men who were held by police following a robbery committed on Wednesday, last, on taxi driver Nankishore Arjune, are to be charged shortly and placed before the courts. They were positively identified following an identification parade held yesterday as two of the three men who robbed Arjune.
According to information, police were able to crack the case after part of a toy gun was found in the abandoned car. Following quick and thorough investigation by police ranks and acting on information, the trail led investigators to a house at Angoy’s Avenue where two men who are known characters were nabbed. Investigators searched the house and unearthed a toy gun which matched the part of the toy gun found in the car.
The men found in the house were arrested and taken into custody.
Police are still hunting for another man who is said to be an integral part of the gang.
Police in a release stated that they have detained two women who are believed to be part of a four-member gang that robbed the taxi driver early Wednesday morning.
The two women and their two male accomplices were arrested after police recovered the taxi driver’s stolen car.
According to reports, about 01:30 hours yesterday Nankishore Arjune was robbed of his AT 192 motor car, jewellery, a cell phone and $15,000 by three men, one of whom was armed with a gun at Timmers Dam, Angoy’s Avenue, New Amsterdam, Berbice.
Arjune was operating his motorcar for hire when the suspects and two women stopped him and requested to be taken to Timmers Dam.
When the vehicle arrived at that location, the women exited, leaving the men, who proceeded to rob the driver.
The motorcar was later found intact at Angoy’s Avenue.
