(CNS): A 40-year-old man has now been charged withpossession of an imitation firearm with intent to rob, police confirmed Monday. Following the arrest of the man at Owen Roberts International Airport as he was attempting to leave the country police have now charged the suspect in connection with an attempted robbery of a cash van security guard outside a supermarket at the Countryside shopping village in Savannah. The man is accused of trying to steal a cash bag from the guard as he loaded cash from Fosters to his armoured van on 2 December at around 7:30 in the evening. The would-be robber was carrying what was believed to be a handgun as he approached the guard and demanded he hand over the cash bag.

The guard put up a fight foiling the suspect’s attempts to get the cash who ran off empty handed. Although the guard was shaken by the attack, he was not physically injured and no shots were fired.

Police arrested the suspect on Tuesday 6 December at the airport but his name and nationality have not yet been revealed.

    Good to know that some of these thugs are being charged. What of the CUC robbery? The Public and also Police seem to put a name to at least one of them. The famous and tall bent shoulder man. It is about time that they are caught.
