Bartica robbery/ murders
The police are still hunting a seventh person in connection with the robbery/ murder committed on two gold dealers in Bartica on September 5, last.
This suspect was placed at the scene of the crime by one of the detainees who provided details of the robbery/murders. This detainee also spoke of removing at least $25 million from the murder scene, leaving an accomplice called Dog and this other suspect in the house.
This suspect is said to be an ex-soldier who actually disarmed one of the gold dealers shortly after the gold dealer entered the house from a session with friends on Bartica. He was also said to be one of the men who remained behind after the group had found $25 million in a suitcase in an upstairs apartment and other cash, some 100 ounces of raw gold, a quantity of jewellery, a large diamond worth at least $15 million and two firearms, one of them being the property of Ricky Ramnarine, another gold dealer at Bartica.
The killers left Bartica by speedboat early on the morning of September 5 and headed to a house in Lodge where they split the takings.
The police say that they are still to find any of the money. They have been able to seize four cars and one ATV believed to have been bought with some of the money taken from the slain gold dealers.
Six people are in custody and some of them are providing even more details of the Bartica robbery/murders that led police along many trails until they got a lucky break.
One of the suspects had become the target of gunmen in Agricola and he chose to run to the police rather than surrender his life.
The police have already arrested multiple suspects in connection with the murder of gold dealers Jainarine Raghubar and Ramdeo Deonarine. Among those in custody is a man identified as the mastermind. He was arrested at a home in Caesar Street, Agricola.
As the police followed a money trail that saw them seizing four Toyota Allion, electrical and electronic equipment and an All Terrain Vehicle a police rank attached to the Tactical Services Unit, who happened to be on annual leave, fell prey to a sting operation because he became greedy.
He reportedly took $1.9 million from a prime suspect, then seized the man’s newly bought car with the demand that he receive a further $5 million. The man duly informed the police and the trap was set, only to be sprung when the suspect deposited a sum of money in the trunk of the car while the TSU rank was sitting at the wheel.
The mastermind, who is known as Satan Ambassador for his knowledge of almost every criminal activity that occurs around the country, once worked as a mechanic for the now dead Raghubar.
The man spoke of living the high life. He bought two cars, spent four nights at Princess International Hotel where he gambled and lost in the casino. His other hotel bills amounted $289,000 for the four days.
Meanwhile, in Bartica, police acting on information, went to the Byderabo Road home of a relative of the mastermind and recovered a brand new all terrain vehicle (ATV) and a washing machine.
When questioned, the man confessed that he was given the cash by the mastermind.
