(CNS):  A 17-year-old from West Bay has been charged with robbery and possession of an imitation gun in connection with an armed hold-up at a West Bay shop on Wednesday afternoon, where the culprits escaped on a black scooter. The boy was arrested yesterday evening by police from West Bay following a joint operation, which involved West Bay CID, uniform officers as well as the K-9 unit and the RCIPS helicopter.

    Good Job RCIPS.

    What ever happened to the Las Vegas Gambler – Initiative; that was going to break the surge of crime in the West Bay district ??

    Oh Boy……. I can’t wait for the OMOV to come to the West Bay voters in the next general election, so we can have some real representation down in the republic.

    So I’m Guessing if you have a real gun you should also make a fake gun so that if they catch you they will give you the lesser charge of an imitation gun.

      There should be no lesser charge. 20 yrs minimum for armed robbery, fake gun, real gun, happy to see you gun. It’s all the same, taking money by putting the fear of death into innocent people.

      These aren’t gangstas folks, these are pathetic little boys without the balls to be real men.
