Jewellery stall at the Stabroek Market Robbed
Security at the Stabroek market is now being questioned by a stallholder after she was robbed of an undisclosed amount of gold and diamond jewellery and cash. According to Radika Samuels bandits broke into her stall from the roof of her building torched the safe where the articles were kept and made a clean sweep of the items.
The woman had beefed up security following a robbery at the same stall some years ago and she is alleging that the security company told her that the alarm installed in the building went off and when the security firm arrived on the scene they were denied access.
Samuels said this latest action will certainly force her out of business.
She said the business has been operational for decades and getting back on her feet will be a lost cause since all of her years of hard work has gone into the hands of criminal elements.
