(CNS): Members of the public have helped the police recover the getaway car used in Saturday night’s cash van robbery at Foster’s Food Fair by the airport, and they are also following up a number of leads and tips from the community, including some originating on social media. The white Honda CRV was found on Monday evening at the end of Admiral’s Landing in Red Bay near the junction of Lakeside Drive. Police said they were able to determine that is it the car used during the daring supermarket heist and they have also confirmed that the vehicle, which had no licence plates, was not stolen. 

RCIPS investigators thanked the public for their help finding the getaway vehicle and said that tips, information and leads in the case were coming in from the public and via the media.

“We want to express our appreciation for this cooperation and assistance,” police stated Tuesday. “We are encouraging anyone who may have seen activity in or near this vehicle anywhere near Admiral’s Landing any time between Saturday evening and yesterday evening (Monday) to please call detectives.”

    So the vehicle had no license plate. This is the DVDL fault. It is common place to see vehicles without license plates. Therefore no one was suspicious about seeing a vehicle without a license plate. Can you image there are over 6,500 i was told that do not have permanent plates.
    I am suprise the is not more crime such as hit and runs and robberies when you can not id the vehicle by registration plates.
    I am just glad the person in charge of that Department do not run the groceries stores because we would all starved to death waiting of food (plates) to come.

    Wish you would stop glamorizing these low life scum by calling the theft “a daring heist.”
    Nothing daring in carrying gun and shooting unarmed people.

    If the RCIP confirm the car was not stolen they should have no trouble identifying the perpetrators or am I missing something?
