[www.inewsguyana.com] – Two men are in police custody following the robbery on the home of two women at Zeelught, Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo.

The men were intercepted by the police at Uitvlugt Bus Shed, West Coast Demerara with a gun and ammunition, while two more are on the run.

According to a police report, four men, one of whom was armed with a hand gun, last evening entered the home of 44 – year – old Chandrawattie of Zeelugt, where they ransacked the woman’s home and took away a laptop computer, a quantity of gold jewellery and $500,000.00 and escaped.

Meanwhile, investigators believe it is suspected that the same men then went to the home of Patricia Jeffrey, 33 years, of Zeelugt North Housing Scheme, and held her up along with her daughter.

The police responded promptly to the reports and later intercepted two men at the Uitvlugt Bus Shed.

An unlicensed .38 revolver with 6 matching rounds and one of the stolen computers were found in their possession. They have been arrested and are in police custody assisting with the investigations.
