Robbers Escape With Bounty from Southern Choice Butane

A gas station was robbed in broad daylight, on Monday morning for which three men have been detained. The brazen robbery occurred at Southern Choice Butane Limited located at Mile four on the Philip Goldson Highway. The gas attendant on duty was conversing with the company secretary when two men walked into the compound saying they needed fuel. But one of the men quickly got behind the attendant and held him by the throat dragging him into the office. The duo demanded to know where the money was kept and then locked by the attendant and the secretary in another room. The robbery lasted about five minutes, after which the robbers made off with about six thousand dollars and the office cell phone as well as the secretary’s cell phone. Police told us today that they will offer comments on the robbery on Wednesday during a meet and greet.
