FOLLOWING the armed robbery last Saturday at Coomaka, Linden, three men were arrested and based on legal advice one of them is expected to appear at MacKenzie Magistrate’s Court shortly.

The two other suspects will be processed and released on bail since there is insufficient evidence at this time to hold them any longer.

Police had reported that at about 13:00 hrs last Saturday, Naresh Pooran, 43, of Enmore, East Coast Demerara, was held up by two men, one of whom was armed with a firearm, at Coomaka, Linden, during which the perpetrators took away his licensed pistol and ammunition and $1M and escaped.

Subsequently, police ranks at a roadblock at Nottinghamshire, Linden, stopped and searched motor car HB 4064 in which the stolen firearm and ammunition along with $859,000.00 and an unlicensed .38 revolver with three rounds were recovered.

Three men had been arrested and were assisting with the probe.
