Two arrested as robbers again target customers leaving banks

The public is once again being advised to exercise caution when conducting business in financial institutions throughout the country.

This advice comes from Inspector Robert Joseph of the Northern Division Special Investigations Unit, following the arrests of two more persons who have been targeting citizens after they left various banks and credit unions in the district.

The two were held last week during a police exercise by officers of the Investigations Unit, under the supervision of Snr Sup Michael Daniel, and they have been charged and brought before the courts.

However, even though prosecutorial proceedings have begun against this group, police have advised that there could be other persons out there who are conducting similar illegal activities and as a result, the public needs to be always vigilant and aware whenever they were conducting financial transactions.

Any suspicious activities should be reported immediately to the police, either through the nearest police station, or anonymously through 555 or 800-TIPS.
