– Crime chief urges Premio, Allion drivers to be on the alert
Acting Crime Chief, Paul Williams is urging drivers of Toyota Allion and Premio motor vehicles to be on the alert as it seems that these are the most targeted cars.
As of last July bandits made off with five Toyota Allion and 12 Toyota Premio motorcars. In most of these cases, the drivers were held at gunpoint. In total, 25 vehicles were hijacked, including three Carina 212 and one Toyota Spacio car.
The Crime Chief said that in most of the cases, the drivers were either trailed to their home or the perpetrator(s) was already at the victims’ home, waiting on them.
”You find that the suspects are already at their home and when they come out of their car to open their gate, the perpetrator sticks them up right there and take away their vehicles,” Williams said. He urged drivers to always be on the alert.
“When persons are going home, they should have someone looking out for them so that the person can see whether there is anyone suspicious there,” the Crime Chief said.

Luthers-Williams and another female had just arrived at the restaurant and bar at approximately 20:00hrs to meet with friends who were visiting Guyana.
She parked her white Toyota Allion motor car, registration number PVV 4879, on the eastern side of the road and was about to exit when an armed man approached the driver side of the car, pointed a gun at her and demanded that she exit the car; the young lady complied.
