Police have arrested the prime suspect as they continue to probe Saturday’s robbery at a supermarket at La Jalousie on the West Coast Demerara.
Armed men stormed the C&S Supermarket just after noon on Saturday and carted off an undisclosed sum of cash, jewellery, phone cards and other valuables.
Police Commander Stephen Mansell told News Source that the businessman’s firearms, a shotgun and a pistol, were also taken.
He said the police was able to arrest a man who they believe is a prime suspect and are looking for others.
Commander Mansell said none of the guns or the stolen cash were recovered.
