(CMR) An armed robbery occurred this morning around 10:15 a.m. at the Rocky's Diamond Gallery located at 28 North Chruch Street in the Waterfront Centre in George Town. In a CMR exclusive report, we can confirm that a solo robbery entered the jewelry store armed with a knife and took an undisclosed quantity of jewelry.
The building is in a bustling area of town across from the Royal Watler Terminal.
The robber then proceeded to jump into a waiting getaway car believed to be driven by an accomplice. The brown Ford Explorer was observed heading towards the 7 Mile Beach area at high speed. The police were said to be heading in that direction in pursuit of the suspects.
The vehicle plate is registered to an address in Windsor Lakes but is likely stolen as is customary in these types of incidents. The helicopter was deployed shortly before 11:00 a.m. to assist in the search for the suspects.
