Everglo bar

(CNS): The Everglo Bar on Bodden Town Road is the latest local establishment to become the subject of an armed robbery. Police said the bar room stick-up happened at around 1am Friday morning (29 July). When Police were called out to the scene following the robbery report, they learned that two men, one of whom was armed with a handgun, had entered the bar and demanded cash and valuables from the four customers and the bartender.

Police did not say exactly what the robbers escaped with or how they fled the scene but said witnesses had described the men as appearing to be in their late twenties or early thirties.  The first suspect who carried the gun was about 5’5″-5’8″ in height, of slim build and dark complexion while the second robber was described as having a dark complexion, and was slightly taller, about 5’8-5’10” in height.

No shots were fired during the incident and no one was injured, the RCIPS stated.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call George Town Police Station at 949-4222.  Anonymous tips can be provided via the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online at the link here.

    That bar is an eye sore; might as well close it down…. again.

    This type of complexion is indisputably a common theme in this type of crime.

    I guess the ethnicity is unimportant, let’s all be on the lookout of some guys between 5-5 and 5-8

      In case you haven’t noticed the trend – since there was so much anger (and constant complaining in the comments) about every press release where the description of the perpetrators included the possibility of race/ethnicity/nationality – the RCIPS stopped including that information in their releases. I picked up on it months ago. So look around at your fellow respondents and you will see why, even though the RCIPS is likely asking all the questions to all concerned, they are not willing to put anything clearly out there… too many people second guessing everything the RCIPS does without any information and without an ounce of support for the hard job they do every day.

    This is what they need to focus on instead of pulling over people for doing 47 in a 40.

    I wonder if the police close the bar and throughly interviewed all persons at the bar before they started asking people who were not at the bar for information.

    I can’t believe something like this could happen there. What is the world coming to?

      Not sure if you are being sarcastic or real. There as in “that place”? Anything could happen there. But as long as it stays there. The sooner they get rid of “that place” the better. That and the other location selling beers to under aged children right up the road from “this place”. This is just a waste of police time. The bartender could easy tell you who the two persons was. But that would be too simple. Obviously you do not know “that place” with such a remark that you can’t believe something like that could happen there.
