Robbery at the Supreme Court!!

The Supreme Court was the scene of a mid-morning execution back in June 2010 when well-known gang boss Andre Trapp was executed as he left the courthouse.  Since then, there has been a twenty-four presence of security personnel stationed at the adjacent buildings.  But on Monday evening, another daring incident took place in plain view of the night watchmen, when a pair of armed thieves gained entry to the Registry Office on Treasury Lane and proceeded to rob Registrar General Triennia Young as she reconciled monies from the day’s business.  At around six p.m., while Young was inside the building along with cashier Natalie Peterson, two young men, one armed with what appeared to be a handgun and another with a knife, stormed into the building and relieved both women of an undisclosed sum of money from a deposit bag.  We understand that the robbers made off with one thousand dollars in cash and another one thousand dollars in cheques.  The crime was purportedly committed using a fake firearm which was recovered shortly thereafter.  News Five understands that the duo made good their escape on bicycles that were parked in the vicinity of the Court of Appeal.
