Gunmen escape with $4M as another Corentyne businessperson robbed

first_img– employee shotArmed bandits on Saturday morning robbed a Corentyne poultry retailer of more than $4 million in cash and jewellery before escaping on foot after shooting an employee.Injured: Samuel FernandesThis is as bandits continue to wreak havoc on the Corentyne. The incident occurred at about 03:30h at Lot 438 Rose Hall Town.Speaking with this publication, Vanisha Shrikisson related that three men, all masked and carrying guns and knives entered her yard as she was about to leave home for the Port Mourant Market to ply her trade.Reports are that at the time one of the victim’s brothers was in the yard along with three workers. They were all tied with pieces of clothes and placed at the back of the yard while one of the bandits stood guard.According to the businesswoman, the bandits demanded the keys for the house after pouncing on her. “Dem deh a demand ah key, and I tell dem ah going and get the key, but one ah dem start fuh cuff me in me head and I beg dem fuh leff me alone.”At the time of the incident, Shrikisson’s sister-in-law and her seven-month-old baby were in the house. “Ah call n tell she fuh open the door and she open it,” she added.She noted that when the men finally entered the house, they took her to her bedroom and told her to empty a wardrobe, which had $2.5 million, while the other broke into a second bedroom. “He take all the cash I had, wha we sell and all me jewellery,” Shrikisson related. The jewellery is estimated to be in excess of $1.5 million.Meanwhile, Samuel Fernandes, 20, a part-time worker with the businesswoman who arrived late for work, became suspicious after entering the yard. Shortly after entering the yard, the gunmen were leaving and a confrontation occurred between them and Fernandes. During the confrontation, Fernandes managed to pull the mask off one of the gunmen and in retaliation the bandit shot him to his shoulder. He was rushed to the Port Mourant Hospital and was later transferred to the New Amsterdam Hospital, where he remains a patient. Police have since launched an investigation into the incident but up to press time no arrests have been made. Meanwhile, over the past few weeks there have been a series of robberies along the Lower Corentyne, the most daring being the invasion of a house situated opposite the Albion Police Station on March 13. On April 10, a man was killed when bandits invaded his home at Topu. There have also been multiple home invasions at Belvedere, Port Mourant, Ankerville, Hampshire, and Rose Hall Town.last_img read more

Road to close while bridge is built

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Once the road reopens, construction work will continue around the bridge through March 31 and may delay traffic up to 20 minutes during daytime hours, officials said. Flagmen will direct traffic. This work will include placement of guardrails, roadway grading and paving, striping and signing, officials said. San Francisquito Canyon Road was heavily damaged by severe storms on Jan. 9, 2005, which wiped out hundreds of yards of pavement. County officials moved a 1.8-mile section to get the road out of a low-lying area that is easily flooded. The new route crosses a hillside west of San Francisquito Creek, avoiding a marshy area, a narrow canyon and two bridges damaged by last winter’s storms. Moving the route and repairing other storm damage – as well as reconstructing pavement damaged by heavy construction equipment rolling along it – is expected to cost about $7.5 million, of which some $5.5 million will be paid by the state and federal governments. The rebuilt road reopened using the single-lane bridge in July on a limited basis, with weekday commuters allowed to drive the roughly graded dirt section in early mornings and evenings, led by a pilot vehicle. The $7.5 million price tag includes $3.7 million to $3.9 million for a permanent bridge to replace the railroad flatcar bridge, which is expected to cost about $350,000. The permanent bridge is expected to be built a few feet upstream from the railroad flatcar bridge after county officials receive federal and state approval for the design and environmental studies. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST – A planned two-week closure of San Francisquito Canyon Road between Santa Clarita and Green Valley will begin Wednesday and end March 15, Los Angeles County road officials said. When the road reopens, traffic will be using a new, temporary two-lane bridge instead of the current single-lane bridge. The road closure is necessary to construct the two-lane bridge, officials said. The closure means Antelope Valley commuters and Lake Hughes, Lake Elizabeth and Green Valley residents who use San Francisquito Canyon Road to get to Santa Clarita must use Bouquet Canyon Road, Lake Hughes Road or another route for two weeks. The bridge is located 5.8 miles north of Copperhill Road, at the south end of a recently realigned section of San Francisquito Canyon Road. The road will be closed between 5.5 miles north of Copper Hill Road and one-half mile north of Dry Gulch Road. last_img read more

Jail for man who threatened to kill Garda after ‘berserk’ driving spree

first_imgA 26-year-old Donegal man who threatened to kill a Garda after going on what a Judge called a ‘berserk’ driving spree has been jailed for two years.Fair, who has 35 previous convictions,was found to have threatened to kill one Garda and to burn the house and rape the wife of another Garda after being arrested. Fair, who has been in custody in Cloverhill since March of this year, was sentenced to two years imprisonment at today’s sitting of Letterkenny Circuit Court by Judge John O’Hagan.Fair, from Balinahone, Fahan was before the court on several charges relating to separate incidents from August 2012 and December 2014.Sergeant Doherty detailed that a caller to Burnfoot Garda Station reported a blue car that was involved in an attempted incident near the Halfway House and that a number of incidents of dangerous driving were observed.“At 1.30am, Mr Fair overtook the Garda patrol car and remained on the wrong side of the road at Ludden, Buncrana,” Sergeant Doherty explained.“Five minutes later, at Fahan, Mr Fair overtook a patrol van at speed and at Magheragbeg, Burnfoot, he passed the patrol car on its left-hand side – it was almost as if he was trying to goad the guards into chasing him. At Mahgherabeg he stuck his arm out of the window and thumped the van.“He drove in front of the patrol car and then came to a complete stop. He put his revering lights on, as if he was going to reverse back into the patrol van.“He then crossed onto the incorrect side of the road and drove at speed towards the patrol car. Garda Gallagher had to take avoidance measures to avoid a collision.”After being apprehended and arrested by Gardai at 2.20am, Fair was said to be ‘very abusive to Gardai and issued a number of threats.’The sergeant said that Fair threatened to have one Garda ‘shot’ and said he told another Garda that ‘he knew where he lived and he’d burn his house down and rape his wife’.“He was very abusive and very aggressive,” Sergeant Doherty said.Barrister Shaun McGee said that it wasn’t a case that Fair was making ‘cold-blooded threats’.He said: “He pleaded guilty to the charges in June and he has avoided the issue of two trials and pleaded to all matters.“The only explanation regarding his behaviour is the old issue of alcohol. That seems to be the villain of the piece again. He has remained abstinent from alcohol and is attending AA meetings in prison, making serious efforts in that regard. He is working in the kitchen in the prison.”Mr Fair was also before the court on a number of matters relating to incidents from Wednesday, August 15, 2012.Sergeant Doherty gave evidence that, at 1.35am on the day in question, Nigel Robinson, the operator of a Go Safe van, reported that a heavy object had been thrown at his van by someone driving a white Citroen Berlingo van.At 2.15am on the same morning, Gardai stopped a van being driven by Fair at Railway Road in Buncrana.  Fair was cautioned and replied ‘no comment’ to any question that was asked.“He said that his knuckle was sore from punching the speed van and he made a number of vile comments,” Sergeant Doherty said.At 2.45am, a further report was received from Mr Robinson that the windscreen had been broken on the GoSafe van, which he was operating at Lisfannon.When Gardai met the Berlingo van at McCarters Road in Buncrana, they activated the blue lights and signalled for the vehicle to stop.Fair, Sergeant Doherty said, initially made no comment before telling Gardai: “I’ll burn the van.”Fair said he had been drinking whiskey on the night in question and was convicted of that offence in the District Court earlier this year.Damage totalling €417.65 was caused to the van.Barrister Peter Nolan said his client ‘was intoxicated and he paid the price for the intoxication.’Mr Noland said: “He came here with a plea of guilty. He was caught, you may say, red handed. He has previous history and it is not great but he has pleaded guilty and has admitted the offence. He has apologised to the Gardai and to Mr Robinson. He wants the matters dealt with as soon as possible.”These matters had been delayed as Fair left the jurisdiction for some time.The court heard that Fair, who is a highly-qualified driver of heavy machinery, had been involved in ‘an incident’ in Australia before voluntarily returning to Ireland.“You have a full life ahead of you,” Judge O’Hagan told the accused.“You’re well qualified in what is an extremely well paid job if you can get work. Yet, here you are before me literally blowing it all in the wind. It is very sad. I have no doubt that your father and mother are very ashamed.“You were a madman on the road, going across lines and just acting like a fool. You were going berserk in the car, causing a serious threat to your own life and to a number of Gardai, who were in the process of doing their duty.“Perhaps you have a gripe with the Gardai because of all the previous convictions.”Fair gave the court a letter which he had penned in prison. Judge O’Hagan said the letter was ‘very encouraging’ and said he was ‘conscious of the shame on the family’.Judge O’Hagan sentenced Fair to two years imprisonment and directed that Fair – who is currently serving a four-year driving ban – be disqualified from driving for two years.Fair will have to re-sit his driving test when he wishes to have his licence re-instated.Jail for man who threatened to kill Garda after ‘berserk’ driving spree was last modified: June 28th, 2017 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:FahanGO SAFEJUdge John O’HaganLetterkenny Circuit CourtMark FairPeter NolanSergeant Dohertyspeed vanlast_img read more

OH DEER – MAUREEN’S SEARCH FINALLY PAYS OFF!

first_imgBurtonport woman Maureen Bonner had almost given up trying to get a glimpse of these fawns in Lackenagh.Maureen had tried to catch up with the shy creatures on several occasions close to the Railway Walk. And yesterday she finally did and even managed to catch them on film.“I have been trying to get pictures of these fellas for a while now, I was just about to give up this evening when I came across them!“They have been known to take a stroll on that walk now and again. However, when I caught up with them, they were taking time out – it was a Sunday afternoon after all,” said Maureen.   OH DEER – MAUREEN’S SEARCH FINALLY PAYS OFF! was last modified: March 10th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:burtonportdeerfawnlast_img read more

St. John Bosco wins on character

first_img Mejia is a 4.0 student, a three-time letter winner and was selected the Rams’ Defensive Player of the Year. She has been a camp counselor and is a volunteer at the Children’s Clinic in Long Beach. Moss plays football and basketball and runs track for the Saints. He was a league champion in track and field and a second-team all-league player in basketball. In his nomination, Moss is described as a “student of principle and character’ as well as being “devoted to team success.” “He’s a great kid,” said St. Anthony athletic director and football coach Brian Walsh. “He’s very warm-hearted, a very good leader.” Walsh noted Moss’ grades have improved tremendously since enrolling at St. Anthony as a junior. Boys basketball Walsh announced Monday that Glen Marx has been hired as the school’s new boys basketball coach. Marx was hired last week and will meet the team today. Marx was formerly the coach of Mira Costa High and has been involved in college and professional player development for the past 10 years, according to Walsh. Marx replaces Steve Crisostomo, who coached the Saints for three years. — David Felton Football Dominguez coach Willie Donerson knows you can’t fool kids, so after beating Poly and Compton the previous two weeks, he knew his players wouldn’t be fired up to play Downey. However, that wasn’t a problem. After beating the Vikings 39-0, the Dons will play at Paramount on Friday in a San Gabriel Valley League showdown. And to compound matters for Donerson, he knows full well the Pirates are going to be awfully mad after they were upset by Warren, 17-6. “It should be a great game,” Donerson said. “I kept telling the kids last week not to take Downey for granted, that they were good but I don’t think they believed me. “This week though, I don’t think motivation will be a problem. The league title might be on the line.” Even though former Los Alamitos quarterback Jimmy Barnes has moved on to Alabama, where he is a freshman QB for the Crimson Tide ranked fifth in the first BCS poll he still keeps track of his former teammates. When Ross Hill took over as the Griffins’ starting quarterback in the second week of the season, Barnes immediately wrote him a letter wishing him good luck. “That’s just the kind of person Jimmy is,” Hill said. “I really appreciated it. When he was here last year, I could always go to him for advice and even though he’s now at college, he wrote in his letter that I could still call him any time I wanted to. “You just don’t meet many people like him.” Last week, Gahr beat Cerritos 26-0, but Gladiators coach Greg Marshall knows if his team is going to make the playoffs, it will have to beat quality opponents. And according to Marshall, there’s no time like the present. On Friday, Gahr (4-2) plays at Artesia (4-2) in a nonleague game. “This is a big game for us,” Marshall said. “Artesia is really good and hopefully we do better against them than we did against Mayfair (a 33-0 loss). “Against the Monsoons, we allowed 14 points in the last two minutes of the first half and Artesia is capable of doing the same. They can really put points on the board and we have to do a better job of making them work for their points.” Huntington Park is off to a 6-0 start and this week, it hosts South East, a first-year school which is 0-6. But when asked on Sunday, Spartans coach LeRoy Wilson said his team won’t take the Jaguars for granted. “We can’t,” he said. “Their coach, Rudy Fortiz, was our offensive coordinator last year so we know them really well. We’re going to play real hard and not overlook anybody on our schedule. “We want to win the Eastern League title and this game is just another step toward accomplishing that goal.” Talk about having your hands full. St. Paul coach Marijon Ancich knows his team will when the Swordsmen (3-3, 0-1) host Sherman Oaks Notre Dame at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. The Knights (6-0, 1-0) are the defending CIF Division III champions, are ranked first this season and quarterback Garrett Green and running back Rodney Glass are so good, they’re being recruited by the likes of USC. “This is definitely an uphill battle,” Ancich said. “We’re going to be playing against guys with superior speed and we’ve got to keep the ball away from them. “It’s like playing USC, which would make Glass, Reggie Bush and Green, Matt Leinart.” Avalon is 3-3 after beating Hillcrest Christian 46-44 on Saturday. The Lancers, however, are doing it with mostly freshman and sophomores. “We’re rebuilding but we’re doing a better job than I thought,” Avalon coach Earl Schraeder said. “We only have one senior and one junior on the team, so in a couple of years, I think we can win a CIF championship. “If we don’t, I’m going to become a professional bowler because we might never have a better shot.” — Ben Villa Girls volleyball Though Downey seems to be on its way to a third consecutive undefeated league season, the San Gabriel Valley League’s battle for second place is proving to be intriguing. Each of the last two seasons, Warren has taken second while Gahr was third, while Warren was champion in 2002 with Gahr third behind Downey. The Gladiators beat Warren 25-20, 25-21, 25-20 last week to lay claim to the second spot. It was Warren’s second consecutive loss, its first since coach Scott lane questioned his team’s effort following a sweep at the hands of Downey. But the Bears (4-8, 2-2) got back on track with a sweep of paramount Thursday. “I’ve made some mistakes, and we’ve moved on. My team has picked it up,” Lane said. “We’ve trained a little bit harder, and we’ve put our heads down and worked. There’s no difference for me, I still demand the most out of my players.” Gahr hosts Warren Oct. 27. — Matt Zimmerman Cross country The San Pedro and La Mirada girls and the St. John Bosco boys will compete in the featured Division I and II sweepstakes competition in the 58th Mt. San Antonio College Invitational on Saturday. The two-day meet starts on Friday at 1 p.m with the Divisions III, IV and V sweepstakes competition at 4:15 p.m. Competition resumes at 7:05 a.m. on Saturday with Division I and II boys and girls individual and team sweepstakes at 9:15. San Pedro, the four-time defending L.A. City Section champion, will compete in the team sweepstakes race at 10:05 a.m. The Pirates, led by seniors Megan Adams and Gabriela Rubi, are coming off a victory in the South Bay Cup two weeks ago. La Mirada will run in the girls individual sweepstakes at 10:35 a.m. The race will be the biggest test for sophomore Stephanie Felix, a first-year runner who has set course records at the Long Beach and Warren Invitationals and won both Suburban League Cluster meets. St. John Bosco, which made its debut in tenth, in the latest Southern Section Division II rankings, will run in the boys team sweepstakes at 9:40 a.m. The defending Serra League champions are coming off a victory in the Bell Gardens Invitational at Legg Lake on Saturday with a time gap of season-best time gap of 38 seconds between its first five runners with senior Jonathan Batres, juniors Victor Bonilla, Tim Barreto and Justin Martinez and sophomore Brett McCoy. — Kirby Lee 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Out of the 568 high schools that make up the CIF Southern Section, St. John Bosco High was honored as the 2004-2005 Champions for Character School of the Year at a ceremony held Thursday at The Grand in Long Beach. “Under the leadership of Principal Mr. Patrick Lee, St. John Bosco High School was characterized as a school that has passionately (pursued) the goals and values of character and integrity through all aspects of competition and school curriculum which includes students, athletes, faculty, staff and parents,” SJB public relations/marketing director Kerry Dusserre said in a news release. “This is a huge deal for our school,” said athletic director Monty McDermott, “more important than any team or individual CIF championship we could receive.” “It’s a tremendous honor,” Lee said. “It demonstrates our school’s commitment to (Champions for Character).” center_img Six years ago, CIF and the Josephson Institute of Ethics partnered to develop 16 principles of coaching, competing and teaching called “Pursuing Victory with Honor.” Thursday’s ceremony honored athletes, coaches and administrators who combine a competitive nature with the Six Pillars of Character trustworthiness, responsibility, respect, fairness, caring and citizenship. Eight Southern Section schools Chaparral, Redondo Union, Serrano, Knight, Ayala, Camarillo, Magnolia and St. John Bosco were among the finalists for the award. “The other schools were magnificent,” Dusserre said Monday. “We were overwhelmed with the award.” At the same ceremony, Lakewood boys soccer player Christopher Contreras, Millikan softball player Analicia Mejia and St. Anthony three-sport athlete Donte Moss were honored for their athletic, academic and community achievements. Contreras is an All-Moore League performer who has never received a red card or been called for a foul. He carries and 3.8 GPA and is a member of Lakewood’s Student Council. last_img read more
