(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – THIEVES pretending to be police officers robbed a Guaico man of his car and cash last night.
The thieves did not get very far with the vehicle however, as the ‘kill switch’ mechanism shut them down.
At around 11.30 p.m. the victim, of Robinson Lane, was awakened by a voice shouting “Police”.
The victim opened his window and saw a man pointing a firearm at him.
The victim said the assailant ordered him to open his door and he complied.
Two assailants stormed into the house and tied up the victim.
They stole a brown bag which contained keys to a Toyota Corolla valued $85,000, $9,000, and identification documents.
The assailants left in the Toyota Corolla.
The victim untied himself and contacted police.
Officers of the Sangre Grande CID responded and during a search of the area found the stolen vehicle as well as a Nissan Tiida found idling near the victim’s house.
The cash was not found, police said.
The vehicles were towed to the Sangre Grande Police Station where they were expected to be forensically examined.
