Chef, wanted for spate of robberies, arrested during Police operation at Peters Hall
Corwin Estwick, a 29-year-old Chef who was wanted for several robberies that occurred in Region Three was Monday morning arrested at a house on the East Bank of Demerara.
At about 10:15hrs, the intelligence-led Police operation was conducted at a house in Peters Hall which resulted in the arrest of Estwick.
Police ranks also recovered a GR 43 Glock pistol and four 9MM live rounds in the magazine, which he had in his possession.
On arrival at the location, the ranks observed a two-storey wooden and concrete building in a fenced yard. The ranks entered the lower flat and made their way to the upper flat.
“It was observed that the house has three bedrooms on the northern side and a living area on the southern side. The ranks saw Estwick sitting on a chair in the living area with a black one-strap bag across his chest,” Police Headquarters said in a statement.
The ranks identified themselves as policemen in plain clothes. One of the ranks then searched Estwick’s person and found the firearm and ammunition in the bag.
The rank asked Estwick if he was the holder of a firearm license and he responded ‘no’. He was told of the allegation, cautioned, and arrested.
A further search was carried out in the house and around the yard, but nothing illegal was found. The ranks then escorted Estwick to the Providence Police Station, where the firearm and ammunition were marked and sealed in his presence. He was placed into custody pending further investigation.
