Gunmen storm GPL’s Parika office
Three armed men on Friday stormed the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) office at Parika, East Bank Essequibo and robbed the location of all revenues received and held the staff and customers at gunpoint.
The power company in a statement noted that the bandits also relieved the security personnel of a gun. The robbery occurred just after 12:00hrs.
“The Guyana Police Force has since been informed of this criminal occurrence and investigations are ongoing,” the statement noted.
GPL said today’s robbery coupled with last week’s foiled attempt at the company’s Mon Repos Customer Service Centre is of immense concern to the company and a robust assessment of security provisions at their locations is underway.
