Guyana Stores loses over $1.6M during burglary
Yesterday morning, the Guyana Stores estimated approximately $1.6M in losses through a break and enter at the store’s universal department.
The discovery of the forced entry was made around 7:45am by guards who were about to begin the “day shift.”
The night guards said that they knew nothing of what was going on. The guards explained that about 23:00hrs Monday evening, they went to the back of the building and returned to the front at 3:00am yesterday morning. Up to that time, nothing strange was detected.
When checks were made to estimate the losses, the store’s management discovered that over $1.6M in products were stolen.
Among the losses were: educational games, a large quantity of “brand name” male dress pants, stationary, school clothes and deodorants.
When Kaieteur News arrived on the scene, ranks were examining the area of breakage for prints and other potential clues.
