Gunmen in police uniform lift $2.5M from petrol dealer
Bandits in Police uniform yesterday opened fire at a West Coast Demerara sales
representative of Supreme, before carting off $2.5M in cash.
The incident occurred some time before noon, yesterday, on Brutus Street, Agricola, East Bank Demerara.
According to reports, Trevor Tankoon had just conducted business at the Sol petrol depot in Agricola and was about to leave, when two men on a motor bike approached him and opened fire. Luckily one of the bullets just grazed his fingers.
“I was proceeding to cross the road and a truck was in front me so I was waiting when I see the guys on motor bike approach me,” Tankoon claimed.
At first, he said he thought they were policemen but after the men opened fire, he was confused.
Yesterday, when Kaieteur News visited the scene, one of Tankoon’s windscreens was broken. The shattered glass from the windscreen and two bullet casings were recovered at the scene.
Tankoon, who was still in shock, told this publication that he was still confused over the entire episode. Kaieteur News was unable to obtain further information.
