Bandits reportedly steal car, rob Church’s Chicken supervisor of day sales
Two armed bandits on Wednesday evening tied up and dumped a taxi driver in a clump of bushes on the West Coast of Berbice before fleeing with his car to commit a robbery on the supervisor of Church’s Chicken at the Rosignol Branch.
The News Room understands that the taxi base received a call for a pick-up at Number 2 Road at around 22:30hrs and upon arriving at the location, two males entered the car.
It is alleged that the men, who were now masked, held the driver at gunpoint and forced him to drive to a lonely area, where they tied his hands behind his back and dumped him into some bushes before driving away with his car.
The News Room was reliably informed that the bandits then pounced on a 29-year-old supervisor attached to the Church’s Chicken Rosignol Branch who was on her way to deposit the day’s sales at the bank.
It is alleged that the bandits escaped with a bag containing $226,000 and the woman’s personal cellphone valued at $38,000.
The bandits reportedly abandoned the car at the same location where they dumped the taxi driver.
The car is now at the Fort Wellington Police Station and the taxi driver remains in Police custody for questioning as the investigation continues.
