MOTORISTS stuck in heavy traffic along the Beetham Highway looked on in horror and amazement as teams of young men looted a stalled delivery truck, stealing tens of thousands of dollars worth of rice and flour yesterday evening.
The motorists using cellular phones, called in the police and a motorcycle officer who was further up the highway checking to see if motorists were using the shoulder of the highway, responded to an All Points Bulletin and went to the stalled truck.
According to police reports, at about 5.30 pm, the truck stalled in traffic along the east-bound lane of the highway near the dump when from out of nowhere, dozens of young men, some of them teenagers, attacked the driver.
As motorists watched in amazement, the men began removing bales of rice and flour, running across the highway and handing the precious commodity to other persons who in turn disappeared in Beetham Estate, while the looters returned to the stalled truck.
When the motorcycle officer arrived on the scene, the looters disappeared by running through Beetham Estate while the officer radioed for backup. His firearm drawn, the officer stood guard until heavily armed officers from the Besson Street Police Station arrived.
They guarded the truck for several hours until a wrecker arrived to tow it away. Up to late yesterday no arrests were made and investigations are continuing.
Officers said only the flour and sugar was targetted by the looters who ignored other items including sugar and soft drinks.
Recently, the price of flour and rice have skyrocketed, with local distributors blaming world prices for the increased costs.
Motorists told Newsday that it was high time Government forget about fancy anti-crime measures and implement tried and trusted measures including more foot and mobile patrols especially along the dangerous Beetham Highway where anyone could be a target of bandits.
This is nothing new.
