Two men arrested in Western Division for car robbery spree

Western Division Police Officers believe they have made a major dent into the recent spate of car robberies in the District following the arrest of two men earlier today.

The men, ages 20 and 29, were intercepted after being monitored by officers attached to the Western Division Task Force (WDTF).

In the first instance when officers arrived at the Upper Bournes Road, St James area, they observed one man in a Nissan Versa motor vehicle.

It appeared that the man had gained access by shattering a window with a spark plug and then removing the ignition with a screwdriver and wrench.

He was immediately arrested.

Further investigations led officers to George Cabral Street, St James, where another stolen vehicle was discovered and the driver arrested.

The men of Morvant and Aranguez respectively, are currently in police custody assisting officers with their investigations into reports of robbery of motor vehicles in the District.

The surveillance operation was coordinated by Snr Supt Thompson, supervised by ASP Henry, Insp (Ag) Grant and executed by Sgt (Ag) Carmona, Cpl (Ag) Hunte and PCs Clement, Hollingsworth, Dennis, Frith, Ottley, Christopher, Myers and WPC Noreiga.
