Following a spate of robberies, the Guyana Police Force has deployed officers attached to the Special Weapons and Tactics Unit (SWAT) to Berbice, a source confirmed yesterday.
The recent robbery committed on Z-One Chinese Supermarket, located at Lot 16 B Albion Front, Corentyne around 9.15 pm on Saturday evening, along with several other robberies committed over the past two months throughout the county, have left residents in fear.
According to a source in the division, the ranks from the unit, who arrived in Berbice yesterday, are expected to carry out intelligence work in order to nab the perpetrators behind the attacks.
Calls from Stabroek News to Commander of ‘B’ Division Paul Langevine to confirm this, went unanswered yesterday. Stabroek News had also wanted to clarify with the commander whether any arrests or progress had been made in relation to the recent robberies.
