“Police visited Valley of Peace Road where they spoke to the proprietor Mister Tan Pan, owner of Tommy’s Store. He reported that just before eight o’clock while he was inside his business establishment, a green in color vehicle stopped where three male persons came out of the vehicle; all of them were dressed in camouflage clothing. Armed with firearms, they entered the store and held him at gunpoint. He was robbed of two thousand five hundred dollars and his licensed nine mm pistol. Thereafter the persons made good their escape from the premises. Up to now police have detained no one in regards to this report.”
