The two suspects, aged 32 and 28, were picked up by cops in two separate operations following the daylight stick up yesterday afternoon. They were arrested on suspicion of robbery and remain in police custody while enquiries continue into the heist, which took place around 1:10pm in the car park at the offices of Britcay Insurance Company on Eastern Avenue.

Police said that a white Mitsubishi Galant bearing the licence plate 135064, believed to have been used during the offence, has also been recovered along with some of the property stolen from the victim.

“Officers continue to follow positive lines of enquiry and appeal for anyone who witnessed the robbery, saw the white Mitsubishi or any of its occupants either before or after the incident to come forward,” a police spokesperson stated.

The courier, from Sprint, was reportedly held up at gun point outside the insurance building by one man, who was seen fleeing the crime in the Mitsubushi after threatening the driver and stealing undisclosed property from him.

Information on this or any other crime can be passed to George Town police station on 949-4222, the RCIPS tip-line 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477(TIPS).
