3 gunmen rob Eccles Chinese supermarket

Three gunmen on Wednesday morning executed a daring robbery on the Jia Run Fa supermarket in Eccles, East Bank Demerara (EBD).
The incident reportedly occurred at about 03:00h while the supermarket was closed.
Guyana Times was informed that the three heavily armed men gained access to the supermarket’s bond at the rear of the building. It is still unclear if the men escaped with any items or cash. However, the Eccles Community Policing group reported that upon investigation, neighbours said they did not hear any sound of gunfire.
The Policing group is urging anyone with information that could assist the police in their investigation to come forward.
“You can contact us via our Facebook page or get in touch with your nearest police station. By doing so, you’ll be helping to keep our community safe, as we have a zero-tolerance approach to crime,” the report stated.
The matter has since been reported to the Guyana Police Force. (G9)
