‘Kill Quick’ charged in connection to $22M robbery
Members of the Rollington Town Police have arrested and charged a man for the robbery of approximately $22 million from couriers employed to the security firm Beryllium, in Kingston earlier this month.
Omeal Richards, otherwise called 'Kill Quick', of Bray Street in Kingston has been charged with robbery with aggravation, conspiracy to robbery with aggravation, illegal possession of firearm and receiving stolen property.
Richards was arrested on Friday and subsequently gave a caution statement, the police's Corporate Communications Unit said in a statement today.
About 12:10 p.m. on June 8, the employees of Beryllium, formerly Guardsman, were transporting money when their vehicle reportedly developed mechanical problems along Jackson Road in Rollington Town, Kingston.
While fixing the vehicle, a motor car stopped beside them, Richards and another man armed with guns alighted from the vehicle, the police say.
The employees ran in different directions leaving the armoured truck behind. The assailants fled the scene with approximately $22 million.
