A Caribbean Wanted Man Is In The Spotlight As The FBI’s Case Of The Week

Kofi Edwards is wanted by the FBI.


News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Tues. Oct. 29, 2019: A Caribbean born immigrant wanted by the FBI has had the spotlight shone on him as this week’s ‘Case of The Week.’

Kofi Edwards, 46, a national of Trinidad, is wanted for his alleged involvement in the armed robbery of a restaurant in Woodbridge, New Jersey. 

On March 17, 2009, Edwards and others allegedly entered the establishment and, at gunpoint, tied up three individuals and robbed the establishment of a large sum of money.  On August 6, 2012, an arrest warrant was issued for Edwards in the United States District Court, District of New Jersey, Newark, New Jersey, after he was charged with Hobbs Act Armed Robbery and Use of a Firearm but Edwards remains on the lam.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Edwards, who should be considered armed and dangerous.

The FBI says Edwards also goes by the names Richard Jackson, Kofi Touissaint, Koj Edward Touissaint, Koof Touissaint, Koof Toussaint and Kofi Toussaint.
