Robbers in Franks Eddy and Saint Matthews!

Hilberto Romero

There were two robberies in villages along the George Price Highway on Monday. Police say that two thieves robbed a supermarket in Franks Eddy Village, while a resident of Saint Matthews Village reported that he was also targeted by robbers. Police are now investigating if these robberies were committed by the same culprits.


Sr. Supt. Hilberto Romero, Deputy Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“On Monday, the twenty-ninth of June, 2020, police received a report of a robbery at R&D Supermarket in Franks Eddy Village where the complainant Carla Bonilla told them that two male persons arrived on motorcycle and one of them pointed a firearm at them and proceeded to rob the store of approximately one thousand eight hundred dollars in different denominations and the robbers made good their escape. We don’t have any suspects at this time. On Monday, the twenty-ninth June, 2020, at one p.m., police responded to a robbery at DY mini-mart in St. Matthews and upon their arrival they spoke with Joaquin Huseda who reported that he arrived at the store on a motorcycle and he was then approached by two male persons, one who pointed a firearm at him and told him to get off the cycle, he complied and therefore the two make persons fled from the area. So, we are seeking two suspects in regards to this investigation. We are looking at that to determine if there is a connection between the two.”
