Our support goes out to the management and staff of the Moneyshop and it is important for all in the community to assist and support them to move beyond this incident to return to a business as usual environment.

“We encourage any witnesses or anyone who might have information to bring the perpetrators to justice, to please cooperate with the authorities.”

    Can’t wait for them to open a Gunja Shop.

    Money Shop?

    • BenJammin says:

      There already are “Gunja” shops. They just aren’t regulated. People already are committing armed robberies. They just don’t get reported.
      Since you brought cannabis into this unrelated article I’m going to mention that Legal cannabis would give users an alternative access point. Instead of their money going into the hands of gangsters and ultimately used to buy these guns. Sales should be taxed and put back into the system.
      May I remind everyone that alcohol has the largest connection to violence and death. Not cannabis. If someone wanted to rob a liquor store nobody would blame the liquor. They’d show compassion for the store owners.
      In the time it took you to read this comment approximately 5 tobacco smokers and 3 alcohol users died from related illnesses around the world. Everybody needs to stop focusing on the plant thats not killing us and focus on the items that are.

      Now please. Let’s get back to catching the criminals harming our island.

    Another sad day for Bermuda!!! The hoodlums seem to be winning and the rest of Bermuda will be the eventual losers unless we start demanding our courts do better with handing out appropriate sentences for these scumbags when they are caught and tried in our courts!! Just witnessed on the news tonight the defendant that was cleared actually stated ” better luck next time “Thankfully my exit plans are complete and can leave at a moments notice!!! Goodluck to all,those that are not prepared!!!

    • Varied says:

      ouch, I didn’t listen to the defendant’s words, but if so that’s a bit messed up… but that’s another matter.

      Like Mr. Caines mentioned, it’s a well populated area, and who knows where the perpetrators could have escaped to, but with a preschool, post office and other such institutions in the vicinity, definitely a scary situation. Got to nail these crooks.

    • you're not real says:

      You are not a real Bermudan if you want to leave because of hard times. And where you going to go mate? US UK? people there on a regalar plus you got terrorist targeting you. Or maybe you want to be a Canadian and get eaten on a bus while you minding your own business. Where mate where… run from your problems much? There is no place like Bermuda as soon as weed is legal a lot of problems will go away. The more we close the gap things will get better.

      • Bill says:

        You have a higher chance of getting shot / stabbed AND robbed in Bermuda than you do of being eaten on a bus in Canada. You hear about this stuff almost every other day in Bermuda and considering how small the island is, it’s probably affecting people you know. Keep thinking people just get eaten on the bus in Canada buddy.

      • cole says:

        You can’t be a real _Bermudian_ since you don’t know the correct moniker

    • Bill says:

      Yep, the sentences are an absolute joke. That drunk driving incident a few days ago causing grievous bodily harm and the guy gets off with a $2,000 fine and can’t drive for a few years. Maybe if the penalties were increased to something reasonable people would think twice about breaking the laws.

    • frank says:

      Bye bye

    • Don't tell them the truth says:

      Ya a## is not gone yet how long have you been leaving already Lol SMT

    • Vulcan Trash Cleaner says:

      would you like me to show you the way to the airport

  3. Watcher55 says:

    Oh I’m sure the multi million dollar CCTV system will give them hundreds of leads and assure an arrest and conviction…..NOT!!

    • Zevon says:

      Why not? There have been several convictions as a result of CCTV evidence in the past few weeks.

  4. Hair says:

    Hope they spend it locally!!!

  5. Oh,I see now says:

    Lets hope yours eventually runs out.

  6. Common Sense Talking says:

    What happened at The Money Shop is ridiculou! The former owner of the late owner of The Money Shop was the kindest woman on earth she would have given or helped anyone. Whoever the dummy was need only have asked her family are the same. They are in my prayers.

    @ “You’re not real” I am sure the released defendant is not reading these comments even if he can read why are you talking to him silly?

    • you're not real says:

      “They are in my prayers.”

      I am looking at the sign to the very left top on the front of the shop.

  7. Really? says:

    Mr Caines added that the call came in at around 4.20

  8. Brandon says:

    Maybe if the place like this store were able to carry arms just like the cowards who robbed them it’ll be a totally different story ..
