Two held in bar robbery

Two men are currently in police custody after they allegedly robbed a bar in Arouca Wednesday afternoon.

The two suspects were held mere moments after the incident was reported due to swift work of officers of the Northern Division.

According to police reports, around 1.30 pm, police received a report that a bar along Hosein’s Trace, Lopinot had been robbed at gunpoint.

The officers were given a description of the suspects, as well as the vehicle in which they escaped in, and road blocks were set up to intercept the vehicle.

The car was intercepted along the Piarco Old Road, Arouca, and when it was searched, the items reported as stolen were recovered.

The officers also found and seized a toy-gun which they believed was used in the incident.
