A surveillance camera may prove to be the undoing of two bandits who held up the On the Go filling station at Nismes, West Bank Demerara, shortly after midnight yesterday.
The men escaped with $46,000 in cash and phone cards, after holding two pump attendants at gunpoint, however, the entire robbery was recorded on a surveillance camera.
The surveillance monitor shows a tall, slim individual wearing a helmet, holding both men at gunpoint.
It subsequently shows the man’s accomplice on a motorcycle.
One of the pump attendants told Kaieteur News that he had just emerged from a washroom when he saw the other pump attendant selling gas to two men on a motorcycle. He recalled that one of the men was tall, slim and had long hair while the other was stocky.
According to him the taller one paid for the gas but then drew a handgun and took his money back.
“The fine one grab me and ask ‘wheh the money deh?’”
He said the gunman then relieved him of $16,000 while taking $20,000 from his colleague. They also relieved the employees of $10,000 in phone cards before riding north on the West Bank Demerara public road.
According to an official at the gas station, police have not yet identified the suspects, although they have viewed the surveillance footage.
The Nismes filling station was hit by bandits in 2008, with the suspects fleeing on foot.
