Ban­dits snatch Ale­sie pay­roll in Har­bor Brid­ge am­bush

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

The Ruim­zeight Ri­ce Pro­ces­sors In­cor­po­ra­ted (Ale­sie), is on­ce again coun­ting its los­ses af­ter one of its staf­fer and a taxi-dri­ver, we­re rob­bed at gun­point Tues­day in the vi­ci­ni­ty of the De­me­ra­ra Har­bour Brid­ge Bus Stop on the eas­tern si­de of the link.

Ac­cor­ding to re­ports, the staf­fer – who re­quested ano­ny­mi­ty – had just up­lif­ted the com­pa­ny’s pay­roll from a Ci­ty bank. The staf­fer hai­led a known taxi dri­ver to trans­port her to the com­pa­ny’s he­ad­quar­ters on the West Coast of De­me­ra­ra. It was at the brid­ge when the duo was rob­bed. An eye­wit­ness re­por­ted that a mo­tor­car be­a­ring li­cen­se pla­te num­ber PSS 7213 pul­led up to the taxi whe­re a lo­ne gun­man exi­ted the ve­hi­cle and be­gan his as­sault on the taxi-dri­ver. The dri­ver was re­por­ted­ly gun-but­ted se­ve­r­al ti­mes to the head as the gun­man spe­ci­fi­cally re­quested the “en­ve­lo­pe with the US$”.

The mat­ter was re­por­ted at the Vreed-en-Hoop Po­li­ce sta­ti­on and in­ves­ti­ga­ti­ons are still on­go­ing. Back in April this year, six hea­vi­ly ar­med gun­men ma­na­ged to gain en­try in­to the Ale­sie com­pound mi­nu­tes af­ter mid­night, over­po­we­red the two on-du­ty gu­ards and car­ted off $3M and other va­lu­a­bles. The gu­ards we­re duct-ta­ped and be­a­ten du­ring the or­deal.
