As surveillance footage surfaces of two elderly men—one with gray beard walking away after robbing a boutique on Sussex and Saffon Streets, Georgetown on Sunday, more persons are coming forward, claiming to be their victims.
It seems as if the thieves came to the city after “cleaning up” clothing stores at Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara (WCD). Reports are that Amanda’s Bridal and Vedo’s Variety Store are among those stores the two thieves raided, while pretending to be customers. Sheeneza Narine, a staffer at Vedo’s Variety Store said that the men raided the store around 09:15 hrs on July 29, last. Just like the story told to the owner of Lady B’s Fashion, Barbara Nedd last Sunday, the men informed Narine and other staffers that they had a lot of money and they wanted to shop big. Narine noted that the white bearded thief told her that his boss sent him to shop and he needed some assistance, since it was the first time he would be shopping for his boss. He also informed the staffers that he needed some items for his own little hustle. According to the sales staff, while one of the men was outside the store trying to distract the staff, the one with the beard was inside, having some staffers pack clothing into his bag.
“What he was doing was when we were busy, the other one would come in and he giving the man clothes to put in his bag and the man would go out back and continue to walk around, asking questions,” the woman related. She further noted that after sometime, the thief who was in the store with her asked if they were selling cigarettes and when she responded in the negative, he told her that he was going to the shop next door. “He said to check up the total and he was going to come back just now and he left and the man walked out with he,” Narine revealed. It was after sometime when the woman realized that the two men did not return that they decided to check their security camera. “That is when we see while we busy packing the clothes, he taking out some of the items from the bag we packing into and giving it to the other man,” Narine said.
Kaieteur News was informed that when the staffers checked their stocks, it amounted to more than $45,000 that the men had escaped with. They also reportedly robbed other stores at Stelling Road, Vreed-en-Hoop.
The men had also escaped with an estimated $130,000 in clothing from Nedd’s boutique after pretending to be businessmen in Bartica.
On Tuesday, Kaieteur News was shown surveillance footage of two men, believed to be in their fifties, who had robbed a Boutique at Saffon and Sussex Streets, Charlestown, Georgetown around 08:00 hrs on Sunday.
The men made off with more than $130,000 in boots and clothing from Lady B’s Fashion owned by Barbara Nedd.
On the footage, they were seen stopping traffic to cross over to Sussex Street and continued walking east towards Lombard Street—this was two minutes after each other. The stolen items were packed in big bags.
One of the thieves has dreadlocks, gray beard, wore a camouflage hat, and faded blue pants and orange jersey with white lining. He had a one strap bag across his back with a large black bag in his left hand.
His accomplice, the one who first left the boutique, wore a pair of blue long pants, grey and white hat, blue pants and jersey. (see video online)
