Two men in dock six days after robbery

| 21/01/2011

(CNS):  Update Friday 10:15pm – Joseph Lloyd Suberan, aged 19, and Sanjay Andre Burrell, aged 21, appeared in court this afternoon (Friday 21 January) in connection to a robbery at the Reggae Money Express on Saturday 15 January. They faced charges of theft, conspiracy to steal and possession of an unlicensed firearm. Earlier today police said that yesterday afternoon (Thursday) they had recovered a firearm, cash and made a third arrest for the robbery.  An operation conducted in the Prospect area ended with the arrest of a 26-year-old man on suspicion of being an accessory after the fact as well as the recovery of “a substantial amount of cash” and an imitation firearm, a police spokesperson said.

The 26-year-old arrested during yesterday’s operation has been released on police bail while enquiries are ongoing. Burrell and Suberan were both granted bail by the court.

With over 60 robberies last year and five in the first month of the year police are under increasing pressure to make headway in solving these increasingly disturbing crimes where local small business appear to be being targeted by robbers.

Police have not given any indication on how may gangs of robbers are currently operating on island but given that some have taken place almost simultaneously it is evident that more than one group of criminals are committing the crimes.

Anyone with information about this crime or any other is asked to call George Town police station on 949-4222 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).

    Excellent news. Congratulations to the RCIPS. Now hopefully appropriate convictions can be obtained and the judiciary will see to it that one group of criminals will be locked up for a very long time so they are no longer a threat to the community. 

    However, one huge question has to be – Why or why are people arrested or charged for gun related and other violent crimes being given bail and let out on the streets? In the recent weeks we have had one such person re-arrested for another gun crime while on bail and another one skip the country.
