Gold Standard robbery: three arrested
Three men were arrested in connection with Wednesday's raid at a Hamilton business, police said yesterday.
Detective Superintendent Nicholas Pedro, of the Bermuda Police Service crime division, explained: “Three men were taken into custody overnight from a residence in Warwick in relation to the armed robbery at Gold Standard in the Washington Mall.
“The men, aged between 19 and 24 years old, remain in custody.
Mr Pedro added: “They have been arrested on suspicion of robbery.”
Mr Pedro appealed to the public for information in relation to the incident, which happened at about 9.30am on Wednesday.
He added: “Please do not assume because people are in custody that the police do not need the public input. We are also in possession of evidence from the scene and continue to analyse this.
“We continue to review imagery of the suspects, and will not be releasing any footage to the public at this time.”
Mr Pedro said police were “grateful for the continued support”.
