An Armed Robbery at B&B Ladyville Sales Centre

There was an armed robbery at the Bowen and Bowen Ladyville Sales Centre on Thursday evening. Around six-thirty p.m., the employees at the centre, located on the factory compound near Price Barracks, were held up at gunpoint by a pair of robbers who somehow gained access to the compound. The employees were tied up and an assortment of items was stolen. An armed security guard became aware of the crime in progress and responded; he came face-to-face with the robbers, but was outnumbered. A struggled ensued and shots were fired and one of the robbers was injured. The two thieves then escaped with the security guard’s weapon, but left the loot behind. While the Commissioner of Police did not comment on this crime at a press briefing held this afternoon, reports are that one of the robbers has been apprehended.
