The ex-convict, said to be a ‘known character’ to the Police, was previously charged with possession of illegal firearm and ammunition and is reportedly the primary suspect in the heist.
INews understands that Police ranks visited the man’s home in Georgetown but they came up empty handed.
Shortly after noon on Friday, four masked gunmen stormed the Bank of Baroda’s branch at Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara and carted off an undisclosed amount of cash.
According to information, the four bandits invaded the Bank located on the ground floor of the Mon Repos Mall at about 12:50hrs, and relieved the female security guard of her .32 service revolver.
The men then held up two female tellers at gunpoint and relieved them of the money. No customer was transacting business at the time of the robbery. While the amount of money the bandits carted off in the heist is still unknown, unconfirmed reports are that it is substantial.

  1. Stop digging the drains and go after the bandits. We need security and development, US dollar getting dearer, poverty, unemployment is rampant. Citizens are disappointed. Bandits fearlessly walk in broad daylight and rob and kill innocent people. Dear president wake up now and save this country.Stop diverting public attention on forensic auditing and firing the able public servants on the basis of their ethnicity and political background. Where is Mr. Ramjatan and Nag? what happened to your promises?

  2. Fellas, Fellas! we are taking what belong to us. This is our time, PPP need to wait for 2020. You Indian thinks this country belong to only smart people.

    Most people know what was / is going down in Guyana when it comes to crimes.
    The well known criminals and the majority Guyanese police are Kit and Kin.

    Then there is this US installed illegal president called Garingehheh will pardon these in no time..Then the gang leader will get some prominent criminal defense political lawyer to get it on with their jury buddies to make magic where these well known criminals will walk free.
