Appeal For Witnesses To Armed Robbery

February 8, 2019 | 0 Comments

Following the armed robbery yesterday [Feb 7], Warwick MPs Neville Tyrell and Dennis Lister III appealed for anyone with any information that can assist in the investigation to please contact the police.

A joint statement from the MPs said, “As the Esso Tigermart in Warwick sits on the boundaries of our constituencies, we would like to condemn the individuals involved in the armed robbery on Thursday, February 7.

“Violent acts of this manner have no place in our society, and we must ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice. The workers and patrons, of which some were students, are traumatized by this event, and we cannot allow this to become the norm.

“As the Members of Parliament for Warwick South Central and Warwick West, we are concerned about the negative social impact on our constituents, who patronize this gas station and live in the surrounding areas.

“We call on all persons to be vigilant of their surroundings. If anyone has seen anything that can assist the BPS in this investigation, please make contact with them.

“Our thoughts are with those that this incident impacted directly and we hope that once justice has prevailed, that they can continue to work in our community with peace of mind and security.”

On a related note, the police issued a witness appeal, with a police spokesperson saying, “Detectives are renewing the appeal for witnesses to an armed robbery that occurred around 4:20pm Thursday, February 7th at the Warwick Esso Tigermart.

“During the incident two men wearing dark coloured clothing – one brandishing a knife and the other brandishing what appeared to be a firearm – entered the service station, removed a quantity of cash and made good their escape.

“No one was injured and the scene has been processed by the relevant police personnel.

“Witnesses or any members of the public with information regarding the perpetrators of this armed robbery are urged to contact Detective Sergeant Dean Martin at the Serious Crime Unit on 247-1739.

“Alternatively, information can be provided confidentially via the independent and anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477 or online at www.crimestoppers.bm.”
