Not a damn cent!!!

• The suspects involved in the deadly heist of a security van transporting cash outside Pennywise Plaza in La Romain on Monday 19th September, 2022, did not get a cent from the money they intended to steal.

• In fact, the bag which actually contained a large sum of money, was not taken from the vehicle and was under one of the officers who remains in critical condition at hospital.

Police said the bags, the suspects were seen taking from the vehicle after they fired approximately 80 rounds of 5.56 and 11 rounds of 9mm ammunition into the officer’s vehicle, did not contain any cash.

• 17 packets containing cash collected from Pennywise was found inside the vehicle and was exactly the amount of money the officers had received from the business, cash-in-transit receipts have shown.

• Three suspects, two who were directly involved in the robbery and another, who is a member of the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force, were detained last night.
