first_img– gun, ammo, jewellery and cash missingThe police have launched an investigation into a robbery at a Number 6 Village, Corentyne, Berbice home which saw the burglars escaping with a shotgun, 25 rounds of ammunition, a quantity of jewellery and an undisclosed sum of money.Based on information received, the family left their home on Sunday morning for a day of horse racing and upon returning, they found that their home was broken into. The head of the household reportedly told investigators that upon checking the premises, he realised that one shotgun and 25 cartridges were unaccounted for.In addition, a quantity of gold and diamond jewellery and a sum of cash were missing. Investigators are working with the theory that the house was broken into during the day since the family left home in the daylight hours and returned when the sun had already set.The main access door to the house can be seen from the roadway and by persons traversing the area. Guyana Times understands that the house is secured with grillwork and no forced entry was seen. When contacted, B Division Commander Paul Langevine said that he was not briefed on the facts of the robbery.Nevertheless, a source told Guyana Times that several persons were questioned as police continue their investigations. Only on Thursday last, two persons were slapped with seven counts of robbery under arms committed on a Berbice businesswoman.Sylvester Joseph called “Sleepy” and Ashley Bonita Brijpaul appeared before Magistrate Peter Hugh for the offence committed on April 13, 2019.Police, acting on information, led to the arrest of the suspects. Joseph reportedly admitted that he committed the act along with three others.As such, he took the police to his house where he handed over a 400 classic firearm which was hidden under zinc sheets. Prior to that, police ranks went to the Main Street, Cumberland, home of Brijpaul where he was arrested.The two men were not required to plea to the charges committed on Premchand Seelochan, Tarmattie Seelochan, Neil Seelochan, Aditiee Rambudhan, Andre Beerbhajan, Rohan Deonarine and Fiaz Latiff.last_img read more

first_imgWEST SACRAMENTO – Thousands of spectators took advantage of the first weekend since two whales took a wrong turn and swam 90 miles inland to California’s capital to catch a glimpse of the deep sea creatures. The wayward pair – dubbed Delta and Dawn by the state’s lieutenant governor – did not disappoint. Crowds shrieked every time the mother and calf surfaced for air. “I see it, I see it, I see it,” screamed 4-year-old Eliyas Charles, wide-eyed and pointing at the water from atop his grandfather’s shoulders. “That black spot was the whale. I can see it.” “Our plan is to wait out the weekend,” Wilson said. “Of course, if they start moving, we’re ready to mobilize.” A marine mammal rescue crew plans to resume efforts Monday to lure the pair by playing recorded sounds of other humpbacks feeding. A similar strategy worked in 1985 with a humpback nicknamed Humphrey, which swam in the delta for nearly a month before returning to the Pacific. But the situation near Sacramento is more complicated, experts say. It involves a mother and calf, rather than a single whale, and the mother’s concern for her baby may explain why she hasn’t responded to the scientists’ efforts to appeal to her stomach. If scientists have not made progress by Tuesday, they plan to begin herding the animals down river with a gauntlet of 50 boats that would provide a less-pleasing underwater soundtrack of banging on pipes. Whether the animals begin moving on their own, the trek promises to be complicated, Wilson said. The whales will have to negotiate four potential roadblocks – the pylons of four bridges – to reach the San Francisco Bay. Then they will have to swim under the Golden Gate Bridge to return to the ocean. Some aren’t looking forward to saying goodbye. An estimated 10,000 people have visited the port’s banks over the past three days, according to West Sacramento police. “It’s just so neat, it’s right in our backyard,” said Karen Wilhelm, 41, of Sacramento, who is studying wildlife biology at American River College. “People are coming from all over,” Wilhelm said. “They’re quite the attraction.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The dusty riverbank along the Port of Sacramento took on the air of a carnival Saturday as cops directed traffic into makeshift parking lots, vendors sold ice cream and lines formed outside Port-o-Potties. The whales seemed content to command the crowd’s attention. For the fifth day since they were first spotted in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the two mostly swam looping half-mile laps around the port, where the sprawling inland waterway essentially comes to an end. Scientists have been hoping the whales – which both appear to have been wounded by a ship’s propeller – would begin swimming westward toward the Pacific Ocean on their own. But Carrie Wilson, a biologist with the California Department of Fish and Game, said experts are content with the animals remaining in the isolated port area for the weekend since heavy recreational boat traffic in the delta could complicate rescue efforts. The whales swam in peace with the help of a Coast Guard escort on Saturday. The Coast Guard enforced a 500-yard safety zone around the whales and authorities closed the north port channel and a nearby public boat ramp for the weekend. last_img read more
