An Albouystown man, who was dragged out of his home last Wednesday by a group of men, reportedly stole a quantity of diamonds and cash from his abductors.
The man has been identified as Ryan Khan, a fisherman, of 147 Cooper Street, Albouystown.
According to information received, Khan was allegedly abducted by eight armed men, who arrived at his home in four white cars.
Yesterday, a police source said that the man who was kidnapped has been described as a “serial safe-breaker,” and burglars would usually pay him to break their victims’ safes.
The source said that Khan along with others reportedly broke into someone’s house in Kitty recently and stole a significant amount of cash along with diamonds after breaking a safe.
It is alleged that it is as a result of that burglary that the Albouystown resident was kidnapped.
“This man is bad when it comes to breaking people safe. He can pass at a house and tell you how many safes you have in your house and then come back with his crew to steal from you later,” a source told this newspaper.
Kaieteur News was told that when the Kitty residents were robbed, they apparently did not bother to report the matter but instead decided to “take matters in their own hands”.
“Like these people had a lot of valuables in there and when these people (thieves) went into their home, they escaped with a lot of valuables. They (thieves) even started spending the people money. One person bought car and so, but we hearing that he sell back the car when he hear the people tracking them down,” a source said.
It is believed that Khan will be released after he hands over the valuables to the persons from whom he stole them.
Khan’s relatives told this newspaper that he was on his verandah when he was forced at gunpoint into a white, heavily-tinted Toyota Premio. The men then took him out of the car and back into his house to retrieve some clothing.
Kaieteur News was told that calls to Khan’s phone went unanswered until Thursday evening, when a man who answered said: “If I don’t get my diamonds, I’ll kill him.” That was the last time any contact was made to the man’s phone.
The relatives said that they heard Khan yelling in the background during the call. On the day he was kidnapped, he was wearing a yellow jersey, camouflage pants and hat and a pair of brown slippers.
