    Two men have been arrested and charged for a series of robberies in Penal.

    The suspects are a 25-year-old of Lalbeharry Trace, Penal and an 18-year-old from Parforce Road, Gasparillo.

    The first was arrested and charged with three counts of robbery with aggravation and one count of robbery with violence, while the second faced one count of robbery with aggravation and one count of robbery with violence.

    The spree of robberies spanned the month of September, with the men accumulating over $16,000 in cash and items.

    The TTPS says the men were armed in each incident and made their getaway using a Silver Nissan Tiida with false registration plates.

    The men were also allegedly involved in the robbery of a supermarket in San Fernando, where they made off with an additional $7,000 in cash and items, escaping in a silver Nissan Almera on that occasion.
