Three suspected pirates captured in Guyana
Published on September 12, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (GINA) -- Three men who are believed to have been involved in a recent pirate attack in the Pomeroon River are now in custody after a raid conducted by ranks of the Guyana Police force (GPF) in the vicinity of the Morawhanna and Barima Rivers. Two other men managed to escape.

On September 8, pirates attacked six fishing vessels between Waini and Cozier in the Pomeroon River. Subsequently on Monday night, the joint services, acting on information received from residents and fishermen, conducted this operation.

The GPF, in a release issued on Tuesday, stated that during this operation five outboard motor engines, a 12-volt battery, a quantity of fish glue, a GPS, six cell phones and a boat that was used during the robberies were recovered by the police.

The boat was stolen from an area on the East Coast of Demerara and is believed to have been used in five of the incidents of piracy.
