On Tuesday July 16th at approximately 9:30pm, the Central Police Dispatch received a phone call informing them that shortly before an armed robbery had taken place at the Texaco Gas Station on the Welfare road. On the scene, the investigating officers learnt that the gasoline pump-attendant was robbed at gunpoint by two suspects. After committing their act the suspects fled the scene on foot and later jumped into a white Kia Rio and drove away. Based on the description of the suspects and the vehicle, the police patrols searched the area. Shortly after, the car in question with the two suspects inside was located on the parking lot of Ace Mega Center. The suspects with the initials S.E.W. (19) from Sint Maarten and C.G.S.

The vehicle, firearm, and cash were confiscated for further investigation by the Special Robbery Unit.
