[www.inewsguyana.com] – Three bandits on Friday morning (June 05) made off with just over $6 million in electronics from Local Tech Electronics store on Sandy Babb Street, Kitty in a daring daylight heist.
According to the General Manager of the store, the men entered the building under the guise of purchasing an iPhone 5S; however it was not until the men drew their guns that he realized it was a robbery.
The General Manager, who prefers to remain anonymous, explained that one of the men used duct tape to bind his arms, legs and torso subsequently locking him in a washroom where they proceeded to ransack the business.
Another female employee was also beaten by the men who demanded that she open a door that leads to a store room. It was explained that the men made off with a quantity of high-end cell phones, tablets, laptops, televisions sets and a slew of other high priced electronics from the store along with some $70,000 cash that was in the register.
“He put a gun in my mouth and start to ask me where the rest of the stuff,” the General Manager said.
He also explained that while the Kitty Police Station is less than a minute away, officers took more than 20 minutes to arrive at the scene.
When asked about the CCTV system, the Manager said that the men threatened the female employee and she provided them with the location of the system after which they removed the logs.
The men reportedly made their escape in a white Toyota 212. Police are investigating.
