The Police early Wednesday morning nabbed three men during a stop and search operation and placed them in custody after it was found they had stolen property of two teachers from Canal #1 Polder, West Bank Demerara.

A laptop, ear-pieces, four cellular phones, an Amazon tablet, an assortment of jewellery, a Guyana Passport, local and foreign currencies and other items were found in the vehicle.
“The vehicle and suspects were escorted to the nearby La-Grange Police Station where minutes later, two reports of breakages in the Canal # 1 Polder, West Bank Demerara were reported and the victims, both female educators, positively identified all of the aforementioned items as their property,” Police stated.
