first_imgCrime Chief Wendell Blanhum on Friday confirmed the Police Force can lawfully detain RK’s security guards, Damion Pearce and Cleveland Pyle in connection with the robbery committed at an East Coast Demerara bank on Monday evening.According to the Crime Chief the Police are expected to wrap up their investigations over the weekend and once legal advice is had, the men will make a court appearance in the new week.He also stated that based on information, they are hunting two others who were also part of the staged robbery.The two men reportedly confessed to the robbery during interrogation by police while at the same time implicating two others.On Monday last, Pearce and Pyle who are attached to the RK Security Service were taking cash to the ECD bank to be deposited when they claimed they were relieved of the money and the firearms they were carrying.During the well-orchestrated robbery, one of the men shot himself to the leg to make it look as if they were attacked by armed gunmen.Following their confession, the duo led police to an A Field Sophia, Georgetown, house where they dug up the $3 million from the back yard. The guns which they claimed were taken by the bandits were also unearthed at the same location. The occupant of the house at the time who is the girlfriend of Pearce was taken into police custody.Attempts to contact the owner of RK Security for a comment proved futile.
