Fifth man arrested over mall robbery

Police have arrested a fifth man in connection with a daylight robbery of a gold dealer.

A police spokesman said officers arrested a 34-year-old man on Friday. He added that the man was later released on bail pending further inquiries.

The spokesman said: “The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank those members of the public who have come forward to assist with this investigation thus far.

“However, we know there are still individuals out there who have not come forward and we are appealing to these persons to make contact with the investigators.”

The robbery at Gold Standard in Washington Mall in Hamilton was at about 9.30am on January 29.

Two raiders, one armed with what appeared to be a handgun, rode into the mall and smashed display cases in the shop just after it opened.

Four men — aged between 19 and 24 — were earlier arrested in connection with the incident and released on bail.
