– pilot, engineer among four arrested
Police have detained a pilot and three other employees of Air Services Limited following the disappearance of $50M in raw gold from an aircraft at the Ogle Airport yesterday.
The gold was discovered missing around 09:45 hours, shortly after the aircraft had landed.
Kaieteur News understands that the gold belongs to the Eldorado Trading Company, which is operating in the North West District.
According to reports, a company official had given the gold to the pilot in two white paper parcels to bring to the city where he was to hand it over to an employee of the said company.
However, the pilot is claiming that after landing at the airport, he forgot the precious metal in the aircraft and went into the terminal.
About five minutes later he realized his mistake, but by the time he returned to the plane to retrieve the gold, it had vanished.
A report was made and an investigation was immediately launched involving the Guyana Police Force.
The three other employees were detained after it was learnt that they had attended to the aircraft as soon as it landed.
They are being held at separate stations along the East Coast of Demerara, as investigators try desperately to crack the case.
