As investigations continue in the robbery at the Woodford Hill credit union which occurred on Thursday morning, the police have confirmed that they have recovered $35,000 of about $45,000 which was stolen from the vault. The lawmen also confirmed that one shot gun was used in the commissioning of the crime and a vehicle registration number PH372, which is now in police custody.
They reported earlier that a young man is nursing gunshot wounds at the Princess Margaret Hospital and two others are on run, as investigations into a robbery continued.
Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector John Carbon, reported that at around 8:20 am, three men robbed that credit union, armed with knives and guns.
He also confirmed that a large sum of money was stolen in the process but none of the staff members of that financial institution were physically hurt.
“Shortly after the incident, police intercepted a vehicle and during the interception one individual was shot by the police while the other two escaped. A large sum of cash was recovered in the vehicle,” Carbon reported.
He said the young man who was shot by the police is currently in stable condition at the Princess Margaret Hospital.
