Cooks Extension business is hit by robbers for second time in four months, and owner laments tardy response by Police


A small business owner is expressing frustration over the number of times his establishment has been targeted by robbers and thieves, noting that he was also injured during the commission of one such offence.

Reports are that the Mills Superette was broken into this morning, November 15, and REAL News Correspondent George Wehner visited the scene and spoke with the owner of the Cooks New Extension business.

This is the second time in four months that the businessman has lost merchandise from his superette.

And he is speculating that one of the persons who perpetrated this incident could have been involved in the previous robbery in July.

The owner says he awoke to find the door of his business place open and damaged, and money and other items missing.

Meanwhile, the businessman is expressing dissatisfaction with the Police’s response and their handling of the matter.

He says the Police promised to send a forensic team to dust for prints and, up to almost two hours later, no one had turned up.

He says his business will have to remain closed until this is done, and he is losing money waiting for officers to arrive and do their job.

    • Better yet, get a licenced firearm and a camera and when you see them put a bullet where they won’t survive. This nonsense must stop. It is only a matter of time before an honest business owner gets killed.

  1. Yes same response I received when we had the same problem. I was informed very sternly by the police that this is not a robbery, but it is a break In. And the whole camera thing suggested
    I watched him cut to feeds to the outside cameras and then he stole the dvr to the inside cameras, so not a good remedy. Best thing get a gun.

  2. Wow. Imagine you working hard for your honest living and ppl going to do you this. Come on man. My gosh. He waiting for days now for the forensic team! What team paddy!!! They not coming they aren’t even here. This is a joke!! I’m so sorry this happened but it seems like you have to protect yourself, your family and your business!
