Police foil armed robbery, suspects escape

While police may have been too late to foil the gunmen on Basra Street, they had better luck on the Northern Highway. The department reports that on Tuesday night just after 10:00 a bicycle patrol spotted two men donning masks and entering the Highway Grocery near the entrance to Belama. The P.C., assisted by two special constables, approached the store, but were spotted by one of the masked men who opened fire. The two would be robbers then rode off on bicycles through Belama toward the Haulover Creek, still firing at the pursuing cops. Unfortunately, the gunmen made good their escape by diving into the creek and disappearing into the night. All police found were the two bikes, two shirts, two masks and a pair of slippers.
