Police investigate gas station robbery


The police say they have found the car that was involved in an alleged robbery of a gas station early Saturday morning.

The Toyota Allion registration number R2555 was found abandoned in the Potworks area late Saturday.

According to state media, two masked men, armed with guns, stormed into the Everyday 24-Hour Service Station on Independence drive around 3 a.m.

The men allegedly disarmed the security guard of his 9mm pistol and ten rounds of ammunition. They then robbed the supervisor of $9,000 before escaping.

The police are continuing to investigate and are asking the public to contact the criminal investigation department with any information that may lead to the arrest of the robbers.

  1. The security business in Antigua is a scam and a farce. never saw headlines security guard unarm one shot robbers is always the other way around. This is just a cover for Jamaican unskilled labour to get their papers until they can negotiate a sandals or restaurant or supermarket work.

  2. I always wonder what is the reason you will haverify a security guard with a gun in front of a store in plain sight. ..tell what sense is that making ,they need to be coceal carry it would server more purpose. ….that was 1960 it does not work now they will think twice when they dont know if security is on property. .if the business wants a door man hire two security one in plain sight and the other covertly placed,,,,a lot of these low life scoundrel could get the room temperature challenge

  3. @lastone it is a farce when minister of government aregulations setting up security companies with front men …..we have some here right now…they want to get rich quick. ….
