The tomb that was vandalised

…carts off with jewellery and cash

THE family of a six-year-old girl who died after a prolonged illness in May 2017, was shocked to find her tomb vandalised and jewellery and cash stolen on Sunday-last some seven months later.

The discovery was made when the family visited the tomb of Lacy Jagroop Mohanlall called “Sarah” at Hampshire Village Corentyne.

Bharat Jagroop called “Blackie”, 45, the father of the deceased said during the Christmas holidays the family visited the site and as is customary took her favourite toys and candies and everything was intact. He explained that the final touches to the tomb was scheduled for Friday but upon arrival to complete the job the family was shocked to find the resting place of their “angel” vandalized.

“Last Sunday I decide I gon finish the last part of the tiling and everybody went, the shock we get was hard to see the whole tomb bruk up. My wife fainted; she couldn’t bear to see what happened”.

He said he left to inform the police and after they checked the casket the body was intact but the jewellery and the money she was buried with was missing. “It’s really hurtful to see after so long she buried, somebody would do something like this. I feel sad about this whole thing, it made us all feel sick.”

The family explained that from birth Lacy Jagroop Mohanlall called “Sarah” was diagnosed with a disability and a brain tumor but lived a life full of energy and happiness until her last moment. The mother Parhbattie Sahadat called “Sita”, said losing her young child was very difficult and to know she was laid to rest and then had her resting place disturbed is alarming. Mr.Jagroop, said the entire incident has left the family mourning all over again and is also calling on the Neighborhood Democratic Council (NDC), to clear the overgrown bushes around the cemetery. Police were notified of the incident and have since launched an investigation.

The two workers (from right) Ramdin and Boodram Hemraj still decked in their work attire

As the days seem to become tougher, thieves have been going to the extent of robbing even sanitation workers.

Just yesterday, two sanitation workers were robbed of their weeding machines around 05:35 am as they were preparing to begin work.

The workers, Boodram Hemraj, a 61-year old father of two, of Independence Street, La Grange, West Bank Demerara;  and Ramdin, (only name given), 49-year old father of two, also of Independence Street, said they had just arrived at their worksite on Church Street, Georgetown when two armed men on a motorcycle approached them.

Hemraj was quick to note that the rider of the motorcycle, which bore no number plate, demanded his machine, which he handed over. Ramdin was resistant.

Ramdin noted that he did not want to hand over his only source of income, but changed his mind quickly when the rider, a light-complexioned male, instructed the passenger, a dark-complexioned person, to shoot him. “

Ramdin said he has been doing this kind of work for the past two years.

US warns its citizens about Guyana’s crime rate – Says local police lack resources to respond to serious crime


 

The US Department of State has issued a warning to its citizens, who might be travelling to Guyana. It asked that visitors exercise increased caution due to the country’s crime rate.
It is unclear if the recent spate of armed robberies throughout the country is what pushed the US Department of States to issue the warning on its site, Travel.State.Gov on January 10, last. The site is where US citizens go to get information about a country before travelling.
There are four advisory levels: Level one—exercise normal precautions; Level two—exercise increased caution; Level three—reconsider travel and Level four— do not travel.
Guyana is listed under level two with a message, “violent crime, such as armed robbery and murder, is common (in Guyana). Local police lack the resources to respond effectively to serious criminal incidents.”
Guyana is at the same level with Jamaica. That country recorded 38 murders, 16 shooting and 17 robberies for the first six days in the year.
The US Department of State urged its citizens, who are travelling to Guyana, to be extra vigilant when visiting banks and ATMs; avoid walking or driving at night; do not show signs of wealth, such as wearing expensive watches or jewellery and not to physically resist any robbery attempt.
Since the year started, there has been an increased in armed robberies with three to four reported cases daily. Only on Thursday, there were two reported cases of armed robberies, one involving a 34-year-old woman who was robbed at gunpoint by two bandits on a motorcycle.
Andrea Prerbersy was attacked by the men around 15:15 hrs in Alberttown, Georgetown, and robbed of her handbag, gold band and almost $5 million.
According to information received, the victim went to Light and Sixth Streets, Alberttown when two men rode up to her. The pillion rider dismounted the motorcycle and pointed the gun at the woman, demanding that she throw her bag.
The suspect picked up the bag and escaped.

COPS UNDER PRESSURE…Twelve gun robberies in thirteen days, bike bandits behind nine attacks


 

 

– bike bandits account for nine attacks

With at least 12 recorded gunpoint robberies in 13 days, police have had their hands filled in keeping a lid on crime in the first 13 days of the year.
But from reports sent out to the media from the start of the year to yesterday, police appear to be fighting back, seizing some nine unlicensed firearms, and impounding at least three cars believed used in the commissioning of crimes, and detaining seal suspects.
From the statistics compiled by Kaieteur News, most of the robberies occurred in ‘A’ and ‘C’ Divisions. A relief for the lawmen is that there have been only two recorded murders so far.
But they have had to contend with a series of brazen robberies, of which at least nine were committed by gunmen on motorcycles.
On January 2, Kathryn Persico-Newton, 50, a teacher, had just left a commercial bank when two men on a motorcycle robbed her at gunpoint of some $1.2M in front of her Third Street, Alberttown home.
On January 6, Marcia Adams, 34, a cashier employed at Kamboat Restaurant, Herstelling, stepped out of a bus at Peter’s Hall, East Bank Demerara, where her husband was waiting, when a man on a white motor cycle rode up pointed gun and relieved her of a cell phone, bank card, and $35,000.
Three days later, gunmen on motorcycles struck twice in the space of three hours.
Debra Skeete, a 49-year-old dental surgeon, was held at gunpoint outside her Eccles, East Bank Demerara home. She had just left the Republic Bank branch, located on the public road at Diamond, East Bank Demerara.

Police said that Dr. Skeete went to the Republic Bank at around 10:45 hrs, she deposited $25,000 in the ATM, then drove to Bounty Supermarket, located on the public road at Grove, East Bank Demerara.
Dr. Skeete then drove to her home located on the East Bank. She had just parked when two men on a motorcycle rode up to her. One of the men then went to the driver’s side and ordered the dental surgeon to hand over her bag.
When she hesitated, the robber drew a handgun, opened the car door and snatched the bag. He then escaped on the motorcycle with his accomplice.
Then, at around 13:45 hrs, a gunman on a motorbike struck in similar fashion at Mittelholzer Street, Festival City, robbing Whitfield Wright, 74, of $527,000 in his yard.
Police said that Wright had withdrawn the cash from a Scotiabank branch. He then drove to his Festival City home, and had entered his yard when a man, who was riding a motorcycle, held him at gunpoint and relieved him of an envelope containing the money. The attacker then escaped.
On that same day, an accountant attached to the Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry (GBTI), her taxi driver, and a supervisor attached to Prittipaul Singh Investment were victims of similar robberies.
Louren Thomas, 29, of Block 2 Providence, East Bank Demerara (EBD) and taxi driver, Mark Horgobin of Duncan Street, Kitty, Georgetown were robbed of their phones and $20,000 cash around 20:30 hrs at Providence Housing Scheme by a lone gunman on a bike.

Meanwhile, that same day, 51-year-old Shafeek Azeez, a supervisor at Prittipaul Singh Investment was robbed of $40,000 at the entrance of his workplace, by two men on a CG motorcycle.
But police had some luck that day. Prompt response by ranks of the Sparendaam Police Station, resulted in the arrest of one of two motorcycle bandits who violently attacked and robbed a police rank of a gold chain valued at $ 220,000.
The policeman was conversing with a relative two men on a motorcycle rode up. The pillion gun-butted the policeman, snatched of his chain and rode off with his accomplice.
One of the suspects was arrested shortly after in Plaisance and positively identified.
