Bandits steal safe with money from Eureka lab
Armed bandits on Tuesday night reportedly pounced on the Eureka Medical Laboratory on Thomas Street, Georgetown, where they bound the hands of the security guards before carting off with a safe containing an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police Headquarters said they are investigating the robbery which occurred around 23:45 hrs.
At the time, two security guards were on duty. Both of the guards were in separate huts – one situated in the front of the building and the other on the eastern side.
According to the Police report, one of the guards related that he was held at gunpoint by one of the bandits and was instructed not to press the panic button.
The guard reportedly told the Police that he along with his colleague were taken out of their huts and forced to open the building.
“On entrance the perpetrators ordered the guards to take them to the boss’ office, where they were ordered to lay face down on the ground, and the suspects zip tied their hands behind their back with plastic zip ties,” Police said.
The suspects then took possession of the metal safe and escaped north along Thomas Street, in a Toyota IST motorcar bearing registration number, PPP 4592, which was parked on the eastern side of Thomas Street.
The suspects are yet to be apprehended.
