– arrest warrant issued for mastermind in Stockfeeds robbery
Four men and one woman were yesterday charged with robbery under arms, following intense investigations into last Thursday’s multi-million-dollar robbery committed on the Guyana Stockfeeds Limited at Farm, East Bank Demerara.
Appearing before Magistrate Leslie Sobers at the Providence Magistrate’s Court were Troy Greenidge, 23, of Industrial Site Squatting Area, Ruimveldt; Adrian Greene, called “Miguel Johnson” of Cato Street, Agricola; Hudley Sampson, 37, of Friendship, East Bank Demerara; Silvester Vanderhyden, 23, of Remus Street, Agricola and Ulanda King, 33, of Grove Public Road, East Bank Demerara, all charged with nine counts of armed robbery, committed on the employees of the stockfeed company.
They were all remanded to prison until May 4.
An arrest warrant was issued for the sixth accused, Delroy Cordis, called “Dottie” of Grove, East Bank Demerara, who is said to be the mastermind of the entire operations and who remains at large.
Around 13:15 hours on Thursday last, six men, two armed with shotguns and the others with handguns, invaded Guyana Stockfeeds Limited and made off with some $10.6M, along with personal cash, cell phones and other valuables from the employees.
They also took away a .38 revolver from one of the security guards on duty.
But there was one thing that the bandits did not cater for— the quick action of law enforcement officers.
Police anti-crime patrols were alerted through their radio network and roadblocks were established at strategic locations.
There was information that the men had fled into the Grove/Diamond area on the East Bank of Demerara, in two vehicles, a Toyota Raum and a Toyota Allion. The two vehicles were reportedly found in Grove.
From all indications, the men were in the process of splitting the booty and going their separate ways when the police moved in.
This newspaper understands that almost $2M was found on two men who were heading towards the Diamond Sea Dam, where according to police, four of the suspects were arrested.
Further investigations resulted in the arrest of Ulanda King at Grove Housing Scheme, EBD, whose motor vehicle, PMM 5295, was also detained by the police, and the arrest of two other men at Grove Housing Scheme.
The police later recovered another sum of money in a yard at Cinema Street, Diamond, and arrested two other men who were found hiding among some bushes in a swampy area at Diamond.
The other motor car suspected to have been used by the perpetrators in their getaway after the robbery, PMM 9668, was also found abandoned on the roadway at School Street, Diamond Housing Scheme. A 12-gauge pump action shotgun along with four matching cartridges and a laptop computer were recovered by the police in the vehicle.
