Some .8 million was reportedly stolen from the hot meal feeding programme in Karasabai, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).
F Division (Interior Locations) Commander Ravindradat Budhram told Guyana Times that he has received reports of the robbery and has sent Police to the area to investigate.
Up to press time, Budhram explained that he was unable to confirm the reports since there was no means of communicating with the officers who were dispatched to Karasabai.
But Guyana Times understands the money was stolen from the Karasabai Primary School.
According to information received, local Police Officers have already begun their investigation into the matter.
