Police Commissioner Leroy Brumell will be meeting today with other senior police officials to discuss strategies to stem the recent spate of high-profile robberies.
“We will be discussing what happened Monday and over the past few weeks,” Brumell said. “We are trying our utmost. We are working on intelligence gathering and proactive policing,” the Top Cop added, when asked to comment about the recent spate of armed robberies.
But the police commissioner also urged the private sector to do its part.
“We are also calling on the business sector to be more security conscious. People see you flourishing and people feel that they have a right to take what you have.”
Two Mondays ago, bandits escaped with $8M after killing Victor Da Silva, a 72-year-old handyman, and wounding his employer, Cecil Albert Gajadhar, 71, during a daring robbery in Kingston. Earlier that day, Tyrone Budhu was gunned down at Better Hope, East Coast Demerara, by bandits who had attacked the man and his girlfriend.
And last Monday night, Heron Dennis was shot dead and an alleged bandit, Dwayne Simon, wounded during a botched robbery at Fuzzy’s General Store in Arapaima Street, Guyhoc Gardens. Another suspected bandit, Aldrhen Adonis, was shot in the groin, allegedly while attempting to rob and ex-policeman.
