$$million robbery at Sangre Grande bank

By NALINEE SEELAL and RALPH BANWARIE Sunday, March 2 2014

Four persons are assisting police with investigations of a break-in at the Republic Bank branch in Sangre Grande where a vault was looted and thieves escaped with cash, reportedly millions of dollars, as well as safety deposit boxes.

Bank officials could not give details as to the amount of cash that was stolen yesterday.

Police reported that at about 12.30am yesterday morning, they received a report from the security guard on duty at the bank that the back door of the bank was open.

A party of police officers led by Sgt Harper and Pc Keshan Sankar of the Sangre Grande CID responded. On arrival at the bank on the Eastern Main Road in Sangre Grande, police saw that the back door of the bank was opened, with several house-breaking implements lying on the ground nearby. The cops also discovered a quantity of jewelry on the ground.

Police believe the door was forced opened by the intruders. On further investigations, the police discovered the bank’s vault opened and emptied of its contents and that safety deposit boxes were missing. The CID police officers were joined by Sangre Grande Task Force and members of the Robbery squad led by Sgt Blake.

Police believed that the security system at the bank were flawed , thus facilitating the break-in.

Several persons have been questioned, with police detaining four of them to help in further investigations.
