(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) -A slick and brazen heist at the docking area of the Piarco International Airport resulted in bandits making off with $5 million dollars belonging to the First Citizen’s Bank. The money was intended to be transferred to the bank’s Tobago branches.
The thieves held up Amalgamated Security Services Limited officers at around 11 a.m.
Police were tight-lipped about the incident but the Express was told that the men were dressed in camouflage clothing and masks.
Carrying high-powered weapons, the thieves gained access to the tarmac and held up the security officers guarding a cargo cart containing the cash.
They escaped with the cash in a vehicle. Officers of the Central Division Task Force and Caroni Police responded and a search is on for the suspects.
