A businessman from region 3, East Bank Essequibo is seeking the help of the public in apprehending four suspects that broke into his business premises, stealing millions worth of electrical devices. Among the stolen items were brand-name watches, cell phones, and cash. 

The robbery occurred on Sunday 20th of November 2022 around 1:20 a.m. and was carried out by four persons. On the morning of the robbery, the four persons entered the business compound. Once inside the robber looted the store of brand-name watches, cell phones, and cash. The men then proceeded to a backstreet located close to the business, where they were picked up by a red and white Pitbull minibus and made good their escape. 

The businessman in a phone interview with “They Break News” expressed his dismay with the way the investigation is being handled by ranks of the Guyana Police Force.

According to the businessman following the discovery of the robbery, a report was filed at the Parika Police station on the same morning, two ranks came to examine the crime scene.  After four hours another rank came to dust for fingerprints. The businessman was then told to report back to the station to give a statement. Here he was asked to give a quotation for the items that were missing. 

The frustrated business owner made known that colored images of the bus along with footage of the suspects were handed over to the Guyana Police Force. He further related that the bus which was used to pick up the alleged robbers shortly after the break-and-enter is a well-known bus that operates from the West Side to Georgetown and from Georgetown to the West Side. 

The businessman told TBN that he is tired of running to the station for updates and learning that no progress is being made. “I was told by a CID rank that the owner of the bus was apprehended by the police and was questioned and released, the driver of the bus however has gone into hiding. The name of the driver was not given to us, and neither any pic of the suspect. The business that I operate is what I struggled to build. I want justice and I am calling on the Guyana Police Force to take the investigation serious.    

If anyone can identify the persons or have any information, they are urged to make contact with the nearest police station or contact the businessman on 6501990 .
