Police are on the hunt for three men who robbed a 51-year-old taxi driver of his silver Toyota 212 motorcar (HC 4492), valued at $1.9 million in broad daylight on Wednesday at Blue Mountain Road in Festival City, North Ruimveldt, Georgetown.
The taxi driver was also robbed of $15,000 in cash, his Blu cellphone valued at $4,500 and other documents. The armed robbery occurred at around 13:00hrs.
Police Headquarters in a statement noted that the taxi driver picked up the identifiable male, who requested to go to a location in North Ruimveldt and as they were nearing the destination, two men were seen on the roadway and the passenger requested the driver to stop because the two men owed him.
When the taxi driver complied, one of the two men darted over to the driver’s side of the car and pointed a handgun to his head.
He then instructed the victim to lay on the road and the other male searched his pocket and relieved him of the mentioned cash and articles.
The passenger-turned-perpetrator then took control of the said car while the two others joined via the back seat and they drove off making good their escape.
