Bodden Town detectives are investigating an armed robbery at Fosters Food Fair in East End last night, Tuesday 22 December 2009.
About 6.55 p.m. two men, armed with what appeared to be firearms, entered the Fosters
Queens’s Highway store threatened two female members of staff and demanded cash.
The suspects ran off with a small amount of money into a black four door vehicle.
No-one was injured and no shots were fired.
The first suspect is described as standing 5’9′ with a medium build and light brown complexion. He was wearing a black mask exposing his eyes and mouth; a black long sleeved jacket and long blue jeans, and spoke with a Caymanian accent.
The second suspect was wearing a white t-shirt over his head and was wearing a long sleeved dark coloured shirt and pants.
Witnesses were not able to get look at the person driving the getaway vehicle.
Detectives are investigating whether this robbery is linked to the North Side gas station robbery last week (18 December 2009).
Detective Inspector Peter Kennett is appealing to all employees at cash businesses to be on the alert. He said: ‘Please ensure that your CCTV is working properly and is recording correctly. If you are unlucky enough to be robbed – do as the robber demands but make a metal note of everything that happens. If a vehicle is involved try and get a license plate. Write it down. Don’t do anything that could put you in more danger. Dial 911 as soon as you can.’
Anyone with information about the robbery should contact Bodden Town CID on 947-2220 or
call Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).
