Fake cops rob Trelawny businessman of millions, licensed firearm
A Trelawny businessman was reportedly robbed of over $14 million in Jamaican and United States currencies, his licensed firearm and over 50 rounds of ammunition.
According to the police’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), the incident happened about 5:30 p.m. on Sunday near Coral Spring in Falmouth.
But, nearly two days later, CCU says not much information is available about the incident.
“Investigations are still ongoing,” a CCU representative told The Gleaner.
The 31-year-old businessman operates a store in Falmouth.
According to law enforcement sources, he was robbed by armed men posing as cops.
The robbers reportedly made off with US$80,000; J$3.8 million; a 9mm pistol and 60 rounds of ammunition.
