Businessmen double price on gunmen’s heads

| 21/07/2011

(CNS): There is now a total of $40,000 on the heads of the gunmen responsible for shooting 57 year old Medsadie Connor who was shot twice during the course of a robbery as she was leaving her job at a Bodden Town gas station last week. The owner of Lorna’s Texaco, the gas station where Connor works, Osborne Bodden said he has written to the police commissioner and offered to double the reward for “the arrest and conviction of these evil criminals that shot and robbed my worker last week.” Bodden explained that the reward has been put up between himself and Bob Watler of Watler’s Metal Products.

“We wish to also appeal to anyone else willing to join in and make it up to the highest possible amount,” he stated. The Police Commissioner, David Baines, announced a $20K reward for the robbers Friday in the wake of the second shooting in which an innocent victim was senselessly shot during the crime.

“I’m asking for anyone who knows who these people are to come forward,” the commissioner stated. “They may be your friends, brothers or cousins, but can you stand by and condone what they have done by keeping silent? It is absolutely imperative that we get the men responsible for this heinous crime off the streets before someone is killed. That’s why today we are issuing the reward in the hope that it may just persuade anyone who has information, but for whatever reason has not yet come forward, to do the right thing.”

Connor is currently recovering in hospital but she may require further treatment in Miami as a result of the wound to her leg. Connor was also shot in the shoulder by one of the gunmen after he had already grabbed the grandmother’s bag.

This robbery occurred two weeks after CIB brewer Kemar Golding was shot in the head by masked gunmen in Red Bay. Golding lost an eye and he is currently being treated in hospital in Miami there is also a reward of $10K for the arrest and conviction of Golding’s shooters who police suspect may be the same suspects.

Although rewards have been posed by several business, crimestoppers, the Chamber of commerce and the police on a number of crimes recently none of these rewards have resulted in any arrests.

Anyone who was in the area at the time and has any information which could assist the investigation should contact Bodden Town police station on 947-2220 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).

    Well Mr. Shooter/Robber, you robbed and shot that poor woman for what I understand was less than $100 and now there is a $40,000 bounty on your head!

    Someone, somewhere knows something. If you want to be $40,000 give up these evil people! Even if they are your husband, son, brother, father, boyfriend.

    They need to be punished for this unnecessary, evil crime and as a bonus you will be $40,000 richer.

    How about offering a "deal" to any criminal to grass on their accomplice? In other words, if one scumbag robber informs on the other, the informant gets a reduced sentance.

      This is called a 'plea bargain', prosecutors cut these deals all the time…the culprits  still have to be caught and charged first.

      reduced sentence for shooting innocent people? How about an eye for an eye?

        I think the point was for accomplices to report on those doing the shooting. Without such informants there may be no arrest and conviction at all.
