Two men have been detained in connection with last week's robbery of approximately $50 million from a courier vehicle in Kingston.
The two were held in a police operation but the constabulary declined last night to give any further information, saying it was "hot on the trail of persons believed to be involved in the heist".
The Constabulary Communication Network (CCN) reported last Thursday that a group of gunmen held up and robbed three guards who were transporting the money in a Suzuki Liana motor car along East Road, off Waltham Park Road.
According to the CCN, the Honda motor car in which the gunmen were travelling collided with the courier vehicle and immediately after the guards alighted to examine the damage the armed men robbed one of the guards of a .38 Smith and Wesson revolver and drove away the car with the money.
The Suzuki Liana was later abandoned on Greenwich Street, Kingston 12.
