Armed robbery suspect bailed

A suspect arrested in connection with the armed robbery of an armored truck outside Foster’s Food Fair airport location on April 8 has been bailed, police said.

The 29-year-old George Town man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of the armed robbery, attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm.

Police confirmed Tuesday morning that the suspect had been released on bail, “pending investigation.” He has not been charged.

Close to a dozen shots were fired in the robbery, which was carried out by two men. Two of the bullets hit the arm and the leg of a security guard working for the armored van company.

The Honda CR-V used as the getaway vehicle was found in eastern George Town days later.
