By Clive Bacchus

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Police have four suspects in custody after breaking up a robbery in progress at the Golf View Apartments in Frigate Bay. A Police statement issued Friday morning said police received a report of an armed robbery in progress at close to 9:00 am Wednesday (September 16) and officers from the Frigate Bay Police Station and members of the Special Forces Unit intercepted a motorcar which was occupied by the suspects who were all wearing masks, bulletproof vests, gloves, and sunglasses.

Investigations so far have revealed that a number of men had entered two apartments and robbed the residents at gunpoint.

They stole a number of items and attempted to flee the scene in a motorcar.

Further investigations also revealed that the private license plate on the vehicle was fake and was used to cover the actual license plate of the vehicle which was a rental plate.

A search by the Officers led them to discover four firearms – one (1) Diamondback .380 pistol, one (1) Taurus Millennium Pro pistol, and two (2) Mac-9 high-powered pistols. Several items believed to be taken from the apartments were also found.

Throughout the day, the Police carried out several search operations on a number of premises in relation to the incident, and some items were taken into custody, the statement added.
