Several persons of interest are being sought by police as investigations continue into the armed robbery of the Bounty Supermarket branch in Kitty, Georgetown, according to Commander of ‘A’ Division Marlon Chapman.
Chapman yesterday told Stabroek News that investigators were working on intelligence gathered but they had not been able to make any arrest as yet.
On Wednesday afternoon at around 3 pm, a lone gunman, posing as a customer, carted off an undisclosed amount of cash and phone cards from the supermarket.
An official of the company told Stabroek News that the bandit proceeded to the cashiers’ area, where he whipped out a firearm and demanded that the three cashiers on duty hand over the cash.
According to the official, the cashiers got scared after the gunman was brandishing his weapon and complied with his demand.
The gunman at this point walked over to the cashiers and “just scramble with one hand whatever he want in his pocket and then he just exit out,” the woman said.
