Kennard Jabar, one of the three men charged in the recent Bank of Baroda robbery, is a former Office of the
President employee. Jabar was employed as a driver at the Office of the President under the previous administration. One job was to chauffeur Kwame McCoy who has since disappeared.
While employed in Office of the President Jabar actually possessed a media pass that he used to enter police cordons. On one occasion he was filming an operation that the police challenged.
When they approached Jabar he produced his media pass and mentioned that he was a staff member of Office of the President. This prevented the police from arresting him for encroachment and for obstructing a police officer.
Police also confirmed that Jabar was a former member of the Guyana Police Force.
In September, 2013, Jabar, of Lot 27 Norton Street, Georgetown, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.
He was remanded after pleading not guilty.
The allegations against him were that he had a 9mm pistol and four live matching rounds, without being the lawful holder of licences.
According to the police, ranks on mobile patrol observed the defendant riding motorcycle CJ 8212 without a safety helmet and stopped him.
A search of his person yielded the gun and bullets.
Jabar, 28; Sean Anthony Aaron a/k Ninja or Ratty, 34, of Lot 317 North East La Penitence, Georgetown; and Ian Campbell, 39, of Campbellville were charged with robbery under arms this week.
It is alleged that on January 22 at Mon Repos, the men while being in the company of others and armed with a gun, robbed Raywattie Lall and Latchmie Mohabir of over $2M—property of Bank of Baroda.
They were further accused of stealing a .32 Taurus revolver belonging to Roshan Khan from Shirley Lucas, a security guard who was on duty at the time of the robbery.
It was reported that Campbell, who operates a tint shop was the alleged accomplice of the other accused. He reportedly supplied Aaron and Jabar with false number plates for their getaway car.
