Two held on suspicion of robbery


Two men are currently in police custody assisting with investigation after they were held on suspicion of robbery.

Wadabe Roberts, 28, of Villa and 23-year-old Patrice Christian of Fort Rd were taken into custody, after the police caught them inside a vehicle parked near Johnson’s Playing Field, acting in a suspicious manner.

Roberts reportedly ran from the vehicle when the police approached him, but was later apprehended.


A search was carried out on the vehicle and an imitation firearm along with a grey hoodie and a red bandanna, among other items, were found.


The items were seized and the vehicle was impounded and taken to Police Headquarters. The incident occurred around 1:40 a.m. on Monday. Further investigations are continuing into the matter.

It was just days ago that the police charged 21-year-old Koeci “Koko” Francis of Swetes and 23-year-old Javier Browne of Bolans in two separate incidents of robbery. Both Browne and Francis are expected to appear before the Court on Tuesday.
