Cops spook robbers into fleeing empty-handed

| 29/11/2022 | 15 Comments

(CNS): Three men who attempted to hold up a restaurant in Prospect on Friday night were spooked by police patrolling the area and fled empty-handed. The police officers were stopped around 9:25pm by a member of the public who had been at the restaurant, who told them that two masked men had entered the location brandishing handguns and a third man had been standing guard at the entrance. The men had made threats to the staff of the restaurant and demanded money.

But when the robbers saw police patrolling the area, they fled the location on foot in an unknown direction, unable to complete their planned stick-up. No injuries were reported as a result of this incident and an investigation into the foiled robbery is being carried out by detectives at the George Town Police Station.

Anyone with information is asked to call 949-4222. Anonymous tips can also be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or the website.

    I love that on the rare occurrence the police actually do their job it is worthy of a headline.
    Although, they only did half of the job I guess…

      They were armed. Do you think an unarmed cop is going to rush in ? They have to call for firearm support group and by the time they arrive the gunmen are gone. Further to this, an armed cop has to get clearance to fire the gun from Gold command when he has a criminal in his sights and has reason to shoot. So it’s like … excuse me a moment I need to call my boss at home to get permission to shoot you in the leg.
