Four men from Port-of-Spain who carried out a half of a million dollar robbery at a jewellery store in Gasparillo yesterday are now in police custody.

The men were held when police intercepted the getaway car shortly after the daring act.

According to reports, around 6 pm the men held up the jewellery store at Gasparillo. They relieved the owner of diamonds, gold, silver and other precious stones valued at $500,000.

Police were contacted after the bandits fled in a getaway car, and later intercepted the vehicle and recovered most of the stolen items and a loaded revolver.

The men were taken in custody and will appear on a number of ID parades on today.
