Man robbed of US$10,000 in cash


REAL NEWS: A robbery in which a number of valuables, including phones and over $30,000 in cash were stolen – are being Investigated.

Reports say that a resident of the O’Beez Complex on Factory Road was held up at gunpoint by three masked men, who robbed him of US$10,000 in cash; an I-phone 13 Pro Max valued at US$1,200; and his wallet, containing EC$5,000 in cash, along with various identification cards.

The man went to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and reported the incident, which allegedly took place at about 3 a.m. on Saturday, January 28, at Factory Road.

It is alleged that the man was at home and heard knocking on his apartment door and decided to go to check.

Reports are that he saw a man whom he does not know sitting outside his apartment.

As the man turned to re-enter his apartment, three masked men with guns reportedly attacked and forced him into the apartment, where he and his roommate were made to lie on the floor.

The intruders then began to search the apartment and took the money and phone, which they removed from a northeastern bedroom.

They also took five gold chains from the victim’s person, along with EC$500, a silver chain valued at $500, and an I-phone X Pro Max from the roommate’s southeastern bedroom, before they escaped.

  1. I hope is Devon son. He too boastful showoff and chat too much. If it’s you I shall them should have wet you up in the process

  2. Don’t bother with Devon son. He’s looking a firearm license. Now information get to me who it was. Excuses to get a license firearm

  3. Local people do not trust banks and hate bank charges and so keep cash in their homes but this is what happens. Lose everything.

  4. Ah so you fi get when you ah pose up like badman… You hab all the gold chain and money but haffi run go police cause you na hab no gun and no backup.

  5. No deterrent, harsher penalty needed. We are quickly becoming an Outlaw State, day, night, crowded, or just peacefully walking, these Tugs cares not. Look at what took place at CHSS and this was in high daylight while classes were packed with kids and security on site. We often heard of 1735 and the many complaints, so much so that the government is about to build a new prison, but if its as bad as they say why are they still trying so hard to go there? and you know what! they commit these crazy sh×t and get away clean, how could this be? I remembered a few years back a report of a female gun down in her store right in our tourist district, middle of the day, don’t even know if they caught this murderer. Any season criminal that relocated here must be saying to themselves this is paradise.

  6. The guy outside calling you at 3am set you up. He told them where the money is and what time to come through so when you come outside; they run in and get the money. This was a lean move to eat a nice food

  7. Bullshit

    That was too easy …
    Robbery staged

    Who goes outside at 3am leaving the door open because they heard a knock on the 🚪? Don’t you read the news of all these brazen robberies and murder? You know you have valuables so why risks opening your door? Staged robbery..
