[www.inewsguyana.com] – Twenty – One – year old Kevin Fields of Titus Street, Agricola East Bank Demerara has proven to the world via his Facebook page that he lived a life of guns, girls, liquor and money.
Fields is the bandit who was shot dead on Sheriff Street by a businessman [licensed firearm holder], whom he robbed at Ramchand Auto Spares on Sherriff and Duncan streets.
Fields reportedly snatched the businessman’s bag with some $1.7 million and sprinted to join his accomplice on a waiting CG motorcycle when he was shot dead by the businessman. His accomplice managed to escape.
A visit to the Facebook page of the young man suggested that he has been living a life of crime for some time now and was seen posing with suspected proceeds from his various crime scenes.
Among the photographs which are present on the Facebook page are hundreds of thousands in cash, a bulletproof vest with a gun tucked inside, eight different types of firearms with matching rounds and magazines, several bottles of expensive liquor and a firearm license.
A senior police source confirmed that they have been brought up to speed with the Facebook postings and photographs of the now dead man and are said to be looking into it.
It is not clear what moves the police will take in determining how many other crimes the young man may have been involved in but according to information reaching iNews, it is likely that there will be several searches of the dead man’s home and that of his friends.
Meanwhile, the police have clarified that at no time was there any firearm license issued to Fields. It is being suggested that the firearm license was illegally obtained either by forgery or confiscated from a license firearm holder.
When contacted, Crime Chief, Leslie James stated that he has no reports of firearm license missing. He said the Force is investigating who the license belongs to.
