The Berbice River Bridge may very well be rethinking its decision to lower their fare after the company was hit with a $5M robbery on Wednesday.
The take included both cash and cheques.
Reports are that around 06:00 hrs on Wednesday, operatives at the  De Edward, West Bank Berbice River end of the bridge were in the process of making a deposit  at the nearby Republic Bank when they were robbed by a lone gunman with a hand gun.
According to Chief Executive Officer of the Berbice Bridge Company, Omadatt Samaroo, the Supervisor was in the vicinity of the Republic bank and had just exited the vehicle to make a deposit into the safety deposit box when a lone bandit appeared and pointed a gun to her head and demanded she hand over the cash that was in two night deposit bags.
The man grabbed the bags from the startled employee, jumped the bank fence and escaped in the nearby cane fields.
It is not sure if the BBCI staff was accompanied by any security detail, however people in the vicinity stated that none was available.
It was a regular practice by the BBCI not to have security details accompany their employees when they are depositing money.
It is understood that security details at the Bank who are usually unarmed scampered for cover, some hiding under tables when they saw the man with the gun.
The matter was reported to the police who responded promptly and scoured the area. A man was subsequently nabbed in the vicinity and is in custody. He is said to have been seen with a change of clothes.
Investigations are continuing.

According to Redux, Carib, Mars and the PNC members, Guyana is now a utopia where everyone is free from crimes and starvation.

Not true, they are all trying to wrest it back from the scenario you mentioned, left by the PPP who inherited it from the PNC of old.

Had the PPP taken care of said scenario I would not have to say in my posts

GOOD TING PPP LOST!

This is clearly a PPP hit. As soon as the government gave details about when the fares decreases come into effect there is a criminal response.

This is why you are a knucklehead....like you gettin high from the egg nog, eh?

Knucklehead is being very kind.  I can think about much worst description.
