Armed bandits invaded the home of a Providence, East Bank Demerara (EBD) housewife Wednesday afternoon tying up three persons who were in the house at the time before robbing them of their valuables.
Police said that at about 15:00h, four armed bandits, two armed with hand guns and the other two with knives, exited a grey tinted Toyota Fielder and entered the two-storey house through a southern door which was open at the time and held a 17-year-old known only as Camyla, who resides at the said location, the maid Alomi Daniels of Blue Berry Hill Squatting Area, Linden and the owner Sherry Jackson at gun point and demanded gold and cash.
The bandits then tied the trio and ransacked the house. They took a licenced .32 smith & wesson pistol and fourteen .32 live ammunitions valued $340,000 from a drawer in Camyla’s bedroom.
