Armed robbers on CCTV
(CNS): Three people arrested yesterday following an armed robbery at the WestStar TV have all since been eliminated from the enquiry. However, police have now released photographs of two of the suspects (see below). Shortly before 3pm on Thursday, 24 May, three masked men, two of whom were armed with what appeared to be firearms, entered the Television Centre offices in Eclipse Drive, George Town, police said. The men threatened staff and customers before making off with a sum of cash. No shots were fired during the robbery and no staff or customers were injured. The suspects then entered a getaway vehicle (shown left), which was parked outside the front door with a waiting driver.
They then drove off towards Eastern Avenue. A short time later police found an abandoned car in School Road and are confident this was the vehicle used in the robbery.
The car is a wine coloured Mitsubishi RVR and displayed the license plates 101878.
One suspect was 5’8”, stocky build and of a light brown complexion, wearing a navy coloured baseball cap, a black or navy bandana covering his face, a black or navy long sleeved sweatshirt with a grey or white sweatshirt underneath.
The second armed robber was approximately 5’11’ wearing a camouflage baseball cap with a dark coloured patterned bandana covering his face, a camouflage jacket.
The third suspect was approximately 5’6” with a light brown complexion wearing a black jacket, a white baseball cap with a white cover over the top and black gloves.
The male getaway driver is described as large build, wearing a light coloured long sleeved shirt.
The police are appealing to anyone who may have been in the areas of Eclipse Drive, Eastern Avenue or School Road who may have seen the suspects or the getaway vehicle to make contact with them.
Furthermore anyone with any information on the whereabouts of the car prior to this incident taking place is encouraged to come forward.
Information can be passed to the Drugs and Serious Crimes Task Force on 949-4222, the RCIPS tip-line 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477(TIPS).
