In yet another reported robbery, a distribution truck attached to the Edward B Beharry and Son was this afternoon relieved of an undisclosed sum of cash in the vicinity of the Bourda Market, Georgetown by a lone gunman.
Reports are that at approximately 14:00h, the driver of the truck was proceeding along Robb Street, Georgetown when he was ambushed by a lone gunman who proceeded to rob him.
While many eyewitnesses were hesitant to give information, Inews understands that the driver who was unharmed, parked the truck in front of a shop and proceeded to the Alberttown Police Station to make a report.
The police have launched an investigation into the armed robbery.
Only a few weeks ago, Public Security Minister, Khemraj Ramjattan disclosed that there will be a heavy presence of police and soldiers in and around Georgetown as the Christmas season approaches but in this case, no law enforcement officer was seen. (Ramona Luthi)
