Corentyne villagers nab would-be home invader posing as cop
Residents of Number 50 Village, Corentyne came out in full force and apprehended a bandit who along with an accomplice posed as policemen and attempted to rob a family on Friday night.
The bandit, said to be a wanted man and who was carrying a cutlass and knife, jumped into a trench but the residents persisted in their pursuit of him. He was eventually handed over to the police.
The other bandit, reportedly the same one who escaped when Deodat ‘Popcorn’ Seecharran was shot dead, is being sought by police.
Around 8.45 pm on Friday, the men scaled the veranda of Satkumar Deonat, 24, claiming to be police and ordered him to open the door.
