A police spokesperson said that a 33-year-old man has been charged with robbery and possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence and is expected to appear in court tomorrow morning. Police have already charged Andre Burton (27) of West Bay, who is accused of being the gang’s second getaway driver, as well as George Mignott (23) from Savannah and Marlon Dillon (29) from West Bay, who are charged with robbery and possession of an imitation firearm.

The three masked men who held up the bank on the morning of Thursday, 28 June, escaped with around a half million dollars as they attempted to flee the scene. However, they collided with an armoured cash van and the men then headed off on foot. As they fled scene they are believed to have dropped around $100,000 of the cash booty before being picked up by another getaway car.

So far, seven people, including two women, have been arrested in connection with the robbery.
