A gang member shot dead in a failed armed Robbery in Port Moresby

NCD Police this morning shot dead one suspect, leaving two others wounded while another escaped on foot following a failed armed robbery attempt.

Four factory made pistols were also recovered at the scene by police.

According to a brief from the ACP NCD/Central Anthony Wagambie Junior, Boroko CID had recieved intelligence reports that an armed robbery was going to take place at the KMC Gordon so they went there.

The armed gang were using a white sedan, investigations will reveal whether it was a stolen motor vehicle because there were a number of registration plate numbers found in the vehicle.

Commander Wagambie Junior, says when the criminals realised that Police had arrived at the location they made a quick getaway on the vehicle they were using with the civillian Policemen in pursuit.

A shoot-out between the criminals and police ensued, while police continued to chase the sedan leading from Gordon's KMC all the way to the RH Hypermart gate.

The criminals forced two vehicles to swerve off the road to avoid collision, before running.straight into a taxi cab parked at the side of the road, pushing it backwards and in turn that cab bumped into the vehicle behind it.

Commander Wagambie Junior commended the CID members for their quick action.

He also issued a warning to armed criminals to stop whatever plans they have because Police will come down when they encounter armed criminals.

He further says NCD is faced with high number of stolen motor vehicles and armed robberies.

"The danger in that, is that, hard working people are being robbed off their vehicles and hard earned cash."

ACP Wagambie Junior was impressed with the pickup of Police Operations and Response so far, adding police in NCD/Central will get better as they work towards new strategies, complementing what is already in place to counter crimes with violence.

The strategy will be devised in consultation with NCD Metropolitan Superintendent and his senior Officers.
