36 Bank Cards And 6 Cell phones Taken From Robber on Motor Bike

A motor bike robber was on Wednesday nabbed by security guards in the New Kingston area after he turned up at a gas station trying to collect ransom money.

Some 36 bank cards and six cell phones were found in his possession.

"I will have my forensic examiners go through it," Assistant Commissioner of Police Chambers Clifford Chambers, who heads the Counter Terrorism and Organised Investigation Branch, said.

The arrest of the bike robber follows the robbery of an employee of a popular security company. The robber took the woman's bank card and her cell phone.

"We called the phone and tell him that we a go give you a money if you give we the phone and the card," one of the men involved in the operation said.

After some negotiations, both parties agreed to meet at a gas station on Oxford Road. "We were in a plain car, we nuh have no marked vehicle parked up at the gas station, and as him ride in and was about to call the girl, we fly out and hold him."
