A 39-year-old Driver/Salesman, Rudolph Forde of One Mile Turn, Linden/Soesdyke Highway, East Bank Demerara (EBD) has admitted to staging a robbery against his place of work, Fernandez Guyana Enterprise Incorporated, Soesdyke sometime around 17:45hrs on January 10, 2022.

On the date and time mentioned, suspect reported to the Timehri Police Station that he was robbed of an undisclosed sum of money, property of Fernandez Guyana Inc. (the company he works for as a driver/salesman) by two males on a white and gold Honda XR motorcycle without a registration number. He claimed that one of the ‘bandits’ was armed with a handgun.

An investigation was launched, and the suspect was re-interviewed yesterday due to some inconsistencies in his initial report. The inconsistencies were brought to his attention by the police, after which he admitted to staging the robbery because he felt that he was being overworked and underpaid by the company.

He then took cops to his residence where he proceeded to a derelict car parked in his yard. He then opened the trunk of the said vehicle where he retrieved a black plastic bag containing an undisclosed sum of cash which he indicated was the property of Fernandez Guyana Inc. The money was counted in his presence and it amounted to $ 129,730.

The suspect was then escorted to the Timehri Police Station and placed into custody pending charges. The money was lodged by serial numbers to be produced as evidence.

Crime Chief, Wendell Blanhum has confirmed that Forde is slated to appear in court tomorrow to face charges
