Cops search for suspects in robbery, shootout

Police are still searching for a lone suspect in the September 6 robbery at the home of former Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Assemblyman Beverly Ramsey Moore and her husband Ian.

Last Wednesday, at around 9:30 am, a lone bandit armed with a gun entered Ramsey-Moore’s Black Rock home, tied her up, and held her hostage for over an hour until her husband, Ian Moore arrived. The bandit tied up Moore also and proceeded to ransack the house. Newsday Tobago understands that the bandit made off with $4,000 in cash and the family vehicle.

The vehicle, a silver Wingroad, was recovered by Tobago police, at Providence Road later on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, police are also continuing their search for four men said to be involved in a shootout with an off-duty officer three weeks ago at Sandy Hill Extension in Lambeau.

Senior Superintendent Joanne Archie on Sunday repeated that investigations were currently at a sensitive stage, declining to give further information.

Archie told Newsday Tobago last Tuesday that police were still seeking information as regards the actual target of the gunman and trying to ascertain a motive, and that investigations were at a sensitive stage.

According to official reports, at around 2pm on August 30, Superintendent Shirley Stanley-Caruth, having completed a transaction at the Bank, was dropping off a parcel at a fellow officer’s home at Sandy Hill Extension in Lambeau, when a

silver Nissan Tiida vehicle approached Stanley-Caruth’s vehicle and a male of African descent, exited and began firing. Stanley-Caruth returned fire and the gunman jumped in the car which vehicle sped off.

A party of officers visited the scene and based on information also went to Guadaville Heights, Tank Road, Signal Hill where the vehicle, with registration number PDH 5313, was recovered and taken to the Scarborough Police Station.
