South Ruimveldt man wanted over $2M Buddy’s robbery

The Guyana Police Force yesterday issued a wanted bulletin for a South Ruimveldt man in connection with the $2 million robbery committed on Buddy’s employees last week, shortly after they had returned from a city bank.

The police said that Quintyn Alvin Bourne, 32, of Lot 142 El Dorado Drive, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, is wanted for questioning for the armed robbery committed on Leon Bentham and others.

The robbery was committed last Wednesday at Sheriff Street, Campbellville, Georgetown.

At around 2.30pm, Bentham and others had just returned to the business’ Sheriff Street location after making a withdrawal from a city bank when they were approached by two gunmen, who relieved him of the cash and his cell phone.

The gunmen made good their escape in a waiting car. As the men fled, the victim, a licensed firearm holder, discharged several rounds in their direction.

Police are asking anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of Bourne to contact them on telephone numbers 225-6411, 225-8196, 225-2227, 227-1149, 226-7065, 911 or the nearest police station.
