A bandit who brazenly held up a Banks DIH beverage truck at First Phase, Wisroc, Linden, yesterday midday, and escaped with $50,000 in cash, is presently in police custody, after he was caught hiding in a septic tank in the community.
Some irate residents who witnessed the whole thing said that they would have given the man a sound thrashing, if the police had not intervened.
According to one resident, the bandit who was armed with a handgun stopped the truck by standing on the road and brandishing the weapon menacingly at the driver.
After the driver Kevon Newland stopped the truck, the bandit proceeded to rob him of the sales money, which was reportedly about $50,000. He then escaped and hid in a septic tank, where he was subsequently caught by the police.
One resident opined that the man seemed to be unfamiliar with the area, hence his decision to hide in the septic tank.
The robber is expected to appear at the Christianburg Magistrate’s court tomorrow.
