Less than an hour after two men robbed a bar in Princes Town, police arrested the suspects and recovered the stolen items.
According to police reports, at around 8.30 pm on Wednesday, two men, one armed with a gun, ran into the bar at Hope Road where they robbed patrons of their cellphones and cash. The bar owner was also robbed of a bottle of whisky. The men then ran off.
Responding to the report, PC Sujeet Ramcharan, WPC Deonarine, PC Cooper, PC Basdeo and other officers from the Princes Town Police Station and Southern Division Task Force searched the area.
About 35 minutes after the robbery, the officers saw two men, who matched the description of the suspects, near Marcano Street. Officers found the stolen items in their possession. The suspects— ages 24 and 26 —of Pleasantville were up to yesterday being questioned by police in relation to other crimes. Investigations are continuing.
