More stolen vehicles found, two arrested
Two persons have been arrested and four other suspected stolen vehicles were seized during a police operation in Yarrowkabra, Soesdyke/Linden Highway on Tuesday night (February 13).
Acting on information, ranks commanded by a senior Officer proceeded to a location at Yarrowkabra and found a black Premio PMM 6979 which is suspected to be stolen, a police statement noted.
Shortly after, the team went to another location in Yarrowkabra and arrested a 39-year-old taxi driver on whose premises two dirt bikes (a red and black Honda Tornado and a CRF Honda 150) suspected to have been stolen or unlawfully obtained, were found.
As the search continued, a 22-year-old taxi driver of Chand Sand Road, Timehri was apparently alerted of the police’s operation and quickly handed over to the police at Timehri, a beige Spacio motor car # PPP 82, which he alleged was given to him to work taxi since last Thursday by a named individual who is in police custody.
The vehicles are all lodged at the Brickdam Police Station.
On Saturday, February 10, Police in ‘A’ Division made a significant dent in the car-jacking ring which has plagued Guyana since last year.
