Wig Wearing Robbbers

Straight out of a movie – Police in Grand Bahama confirmed yesterday that just after 10:00am, two people entered John Bull’s Port Lucaya location, smashed the showcase glass and grabbed several pieces of expensive jewelry of an undetermined amount.

According to reports, the perpetrators, were men dressed as women.

Surveillance videos circulating on social media, show the men dressed in ripped jeans, padded chests, handbags, sunglasses and long flowing dark colored wigs.

The two men can be seen on the purported surveillance camera running through Port Lucaya as they made their escape.

One of the suspects can even be seen trying to hold on to the hair piece as he took off.

At last report, police had very little details on jewelry heist. However it is understood that several Rolex watches were stolen.

Police were however appealing to anyone with information that could assist with them making an arrest to give them a call.

John Bull has been the target of a similar heist in the past.

On November 7, 2012, Jonathan Armbrister, was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment.

This, after a jury found him guilty of conspiracy to commit armed robbery for the role he allegedly played in the May 22 2011, armed robbery of John Bull’s flagship store on Bay Street.

According to reports, the perpetrators smashed the store’s showcase with a hammer and stole a number of Rolex watches.

The hammer was left behind at the scene.

However, the Court of Appeal dismissed the conviction and sentence of Armbrister in 2017, due to “prejudicial evidence” produced during trial and the judge’s permission of an “unsafe” out-of-court statement against the appellant.
