Machete robbers hit WB shop

| 16/10/2012

(CNS): Two masked men armed with machetes held up a local grocery store in West Bay, just after 8pm on Monday evening.  An RCIPS spokesperson said the heist took place at Leta’s Plaza on Watercourse Road. The two suspects entered the shop and demanded cash from the lone cashier working in the store. The men took an undisclosed sum of money then fled the store on foot and were last seen running towards Boatswain Bay. The first armed masked man was described as being around 6ft” in height with a dark complexion and the 2nd was about 5’5”, slim built. Both men were wearing black long sleeve shirts and black long pants.

Anyone who was in the area at the time and has any information that can assist with the investigation is asked to contact the West Bay Police Station at 949-3999, the RCIPS tip-line 949-7777 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477(TIPS).

    There is no criminological evidence to support that. In fact there may even be a negative impact on such crimes during periods of high unemployment,

      Jobs are needed or Christmas might be a breeze.  Our young people need jobs, unemployment breeds crimes.

        There is no basis for the assertion in your post. The evidence is just not there.
