Police were early yesterday morning summoned to the Guyana Stores Limited compound after security guards informed them that a man was on the transformers.
Reports are that the man, who has since been identified as 34-year-old Rondell Greene’s charred remains were pulled from between the transformers aback of the Guyana Stores building.
Company Secretary, James Dean, told this newspaper that he received a call from the security guards on duty at the time stating that they noticed a man lying by the transformers.
The police were immediately informed.
Dean said that when he and other senior persons from the store arrived on the scene they found a bag packed with footwear, property of the store.
He added that further checks in and around the store revealed that Greene had broken into the store and had removed the footwear. From all appearances, too, Dean said, the man had already packed other items from the store into bags and was preparing to move them out of the store.
He said that the man gained entry through the roof of the building just over the stockroom. He said their check also revealed that the man used pieces of cloth tied together to move the booty from inside the stockroom onto the roof and then in the yard.
Dean, up to press time, could not estimate the company’s losses. He added that over the past two to three years the store had been broken into several times in similar fashion and losses run into the millions of dollars.
Meanwhile, one of the man’s stepsons, Grantley Williams, said that he received a call saying that his stepfather had died. He said when he arrived on the scene he was not expecting what he saw.
Williams said that Greene was burnt beyond recognition. The man’s entire abdomen was completely burnt out, while his two legs were almost burnt off.
Another relative told this newspaper that someone had informed them earlier Sunday night that they saw Greene being beaten by some security guards in the Tiger Bay area.
