Most wanted suspect arrested: Rempie in jail
Members of the Regional Support Team (RBT) Paramaribo on Tuesday managed to arrest a Most Wanted suspect namely Irving R alias Rempie. Rempie was wanted for armed robbery which took place at the corner of the Latour- and Martin Luther Kingweg and which is commonly referred to as post 1. The suspect had managed to stay one step ahead of the police for the past 4 years. Rempie told investigators that he was involved in a rip deal of about 3 kilograms of cocaine. When the police were notified that a robbery had taken place, members of the RBT-Paramaribo who were in the vicinity responded to the call. They chased the get-away vehicle and cornered it at the corner of the Hofstraat and the Limesgracht. Rempie and another suspect jumped out of the vehicle and fled on foot. The police officers managed to arrest Rempie after they had fired a few warning shots. Rempie confessed to having robbed drugs from another man along the Achtersteeg. The victim had reportedly recognized Rempie. The second suspect reportedly went back to the pink get-away vehicle while the policemen were chasing Rempie and fled the scene.
