Stabroek News Sunday - - REGIONAL NEWS -

Gun­men stormed the Sue­ria Man­u­fac­tur­ing com­plex at In­dus­trial Site, Ec­cles, yes­ter­day morn­ing, held up the com­pany’s em­ploy­ees and carted off a quan­tity of cheques and the build­ing’s se­cu­rity cam­eras among their loot.

Owner of the con­fec­tionary com­pany Frank Sanichara told Stabroek News that around 8.30 am, three men, un­masked and armed with guns, en­tered the fac­tory and ini­ti­ated the rob­bery. He said that they had ini­tially en­tered un­der the guise of be­ing cus­tomers, while their ac­com­plice, the get­away driver, waited out­side.

Sanichara said that one of the first things the men did when they en­tered the busi­ness place was seek out the se­cu­rity cam­eras and re­move them. He could not read­ily state how much was lost in the en­counter, but noted that mostly cheques were taken in the rob­bery. In ad­di­tion, the em­ploy­ees were re­lieved of their cell­phones and cash. “This is some­thing that’s been on­go­ing in Ec­cles; they robbed Readymix and now they robbed us,” he stated, while not­ing that it was the third time his busi­ness had been robbed within the past two years.
