Three masked and armed bandits on Friday evening broke into a West La Penitence, Georgetown, home and carted off over $300,000 in cash and other valuables.
Trevor Brown, a 30-year old resident of Lot 172 West La Penitence, explained that he was awakened by a crashing sound in the lower flat of the building and went to enquire but as he opened his door, he was greeted by three masked men, armed with handguns.
Brown was reportedly forced to lie face down on the floor, while the men helped themselves to $30,000 cash, a quantity of GTT and Digicel phone cards valued $120,000 and three gold chains amounting to $155,000.
The bandits then escaped through the western door on the lower flat of the building on motorcycles. The victim was not armed.
The traumatised businessman made a report to a nearby Police station and a team of investigators visited the scene. They had combed the area to determine if persons had CCTV cameras in their homes.
Investigations are ongoing but no arrests were made.
