In a daring evening robbery yesterday, armed bandits hijacked a Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) pickup, before escaping with a $1.5M payroll and a gun, taken from staffers and security personnel.
According to the corporation in a statement last evening, the incident occurred around 18:30hrs while the vehicle was in the vicinity of the Ruimveldt, East Bank Demerara public road.
“Information available to the Corporation at the moment indicates that, security personnel and other staff members were relieved of the cash totaling one million five hundred thousand dollars ($1.5M)…”
The occupants were forced out of the company’s vehicle, PJJ 302, a Toyota Hilux pickup.
The bandits, GuySuCo said, drove away in the vehicle along with a 9mm pistol.
“No one was injured and the Guyana Police Force is currently working closely with the Corporation to conduct the investigation.”
