(Demerara Waves) Five men, including one policeman and two employees of Republic Bank, were Friday arraigned in connection with the failed bank robbery more than one week ago.
A former bank employee- Jamal Haynes- was jailed for six years after he pleaded guilty to attempting to rob the bank and several other charges.
The policemen charged are Constable Anfermee Blackman and Rural Constable, Gladstone George. The now former bank employees are Jamal Haynes and Shawn Grimmond.
The charge include that they attempted to commit a felony which is attempt to rob Republic Bank Limited.
Several men staged a brazen attack on Republic Bank’s Water Street branch on July 4, 2017 in the hope of carting off several night deposits from the night before.
However, one of them, Elton Wray, was shot dead and Haynes was shot to his legs. Investigators said he was wearing a dreadlock wig at the time of the incident.
Except for Haynes, the others were remanded to prison until August 11, 2017.
