Police are investigating the attempted robbery of a Chinese owned grocery in Caroni by men dressed in police uniform.
At around 9 am, two men dressed in tactical uniform visited the establishment and told the owners they were there to check the books. According to a police report, the owners became suspicious when the men asked that they open a certain section of the business place.
CNC3 understands they called the police station to verify whether they were police officers and refused to let them in until. However, while they were waiting to get confirmation, the men fled the scene. Asp Richard Smith of the central division told CNC3 they have several leads in the matter and they are searching for the suspects.
