Gas station robbery…Police recovers $370,000 of $5M booty from suspect’s momThe suspect who was arrested in connection with a robbery carried out on a Land of Canaan, East Bank Demerara businesswoman on Monday last has reportedly confessed to the crime, and has also implicated two other men who are now being hunted by police.The robbery suspect who was nabbedAccording to information received, the perpetrator in custody has been identified as Agustus Primo, 33, a taxi driver of Lot 2-4 Supply, East Bank Demerara.The Guyana Times was told that following his interrogation, named his accomplices as Mark Anthony George and Shane Morgan who are currently on the run.Primo further said that he received only a portion of the money, and has already managed to spend some. As such, he only turned over the remainder, which is said to be in excess of $289,000.The captured bandit told Police that he took some of the money –which was given to him by Mark Anthony George- to Shane Morgan’s mother who resides in Morcut Square, East La Penitence, Georgetown.As such, the 56-year-old woman was also contacted by police and interrogated.She has since admitted that she did receive a sum of money, and handed over some $370,000 to investigators.On Monday, the businesswoman was on her way to the bank when she was relieved of $5M on the East Bank of Demerara. The woman co-owns a gas station located at the Soesdyke Junction, East Bank Demerara, left her home with the cash, in the company of a staff.She reportedly made a stop on the Land of Canaan public road to deliver an invoice to another business, and it was while she was about to enter her motor car to continue her journey that she was pounced on by one of two armed men.The bandit allegedly held her at gunpoint before grabbing the bag of money from inside her car. He then ran over to a waiting CG series motorcycle, and handed the bag of money to his pillion rider before they both fled the scene.The businesswoman, being affiliated with ranks of the Guyana Police Force, immediately reported the matter. This resulted in the apprehension of the man who held her at gunpoint, shortly after.However, the pillion rider-who had the cash in his possession- managed to escape into the bushes along the public road.

Chelsea’s fourth defeat in five league games left Antonio Conte’s reigning English title-holders five points adrift of the Champions League places.And the Italian’s negative approach will come under scrutiny after he again opted to start without a recognised centre-forward by leaving Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud on the bench.City now need a maximum of four wins from their last nine league games to seal the title and were well worthy of another victory despite not needing to hit some of the heights they have so far this season.Just as in a 3-0 win at Arsenal on Thursday, Leroy Sane was the inspiration for much of City’s best attacking play.Sane created the hosts’ first big chance 21 minutes in when he slalomed past three Chelsea defenders before feeding Bernardo Silva.However, unlike his opening goal at Arsenal, Silva’s shot dipped just too late and dropped onto the roof of the net.City were fortunate to escape moments later, though, when Oleksandr Zinchenko wiped out Victor Moses with a wild lunge that could easily have drawn a red rather than a yellow card from referee Michael Oliver.Sane thought he had opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark when he caught Kevin De Bruyne’s cross flush, but Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta bailed out his side with an excellent goal-line clearance.Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero takes on Chelsea’s defender Antonio Rudiger during an English Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium on March 4, 2018The German winger sparked the danger once more moments later as his pass picked out Bernardo Silva via a dummy from David Silva, but the Portuguese blazed high and wide on his favoured left foot.So anonymous were Chelsea as an attacking threat that their own fans sarcastically cheered when a rare foray forward earned a corner just before the break.However, Conte’s contain and counter-attack game plan was undone within a minute of the second period when Sergio Aguero’s reverse pass picked out David Silva and his namesake Bernardo knocked the ball into the ground and over the helpless Thibaut Courtois for his seventh goal of the season.Thereafter, City were quite content to keep possession as Chelsea still refused to abandon their cautious approach.Conte eventually introduced Giroud with 12 minutes remaining.By then it was nearly too late as Sane again escaped the clutches of Victor Moses but his low teasing cross just evaded Aguero in the middle.Chelsea’s club-record signing Morata had to wait until the final minute to get on, but even then it was top scorer Hazard who was sacrificed and the Belgian cut a frustrated figure as he trudged off in the pouring rain.The visitors could have snatched an unlikely point in stoppage time only for Marcos Alonso’s mishit strike from the edge of the box to dribble wide.And a jubilant Pep Guardiola celebrated wildly at full-time safe in the knowledge it would now take a monumental collapse to miss out on delivering his first Premier League title.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City players celebrate their goal against Chelsea on March 4, 2018Manchester, United Kingdom, Mar 4-Manchester City’s relentless run towards the Premier League title continued as they opened up an 18-point lead by inflicting more damage on Chelsea’s chances of a top-four finish with a 1-0 home win on Sunday. Bernardo Silva scored the only goal of the match 35 seconds into the second half at the Etihad Stadium when he prodded home at the back post from David Silva’s low cross.
0Shares0000Confident smile: Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp addresses the media in Rome © AFP / Alberto PIZZOLIROME, Italy, May 2 – Liverpool will not make the same mistake as Barcelona and underestimate Roma at their fortress Stadio Olimpico, Jurgen Klopp has warned as his side target a place in the Champions League final.The five-time champions have a 5-2 lead heading into the second leg of a semi-final overshadowed by security concerns and are favourites to reach their eighth final and first since 2007. But Roma — who last reached the final in 1984 when they lost on penalties to Liverpool — have not conceded a goal at home in the Champions League this season.Eusebio Di Francesco’s side beat Chelsea and Barcelona 3-0, with the win over the Spaniards overturning a 4-1 first-leg deficit to put them through to the final four.Despite conceding two late goals in last week’s emphatic first-leg win at Anfield, Klopp knows his side’s destiny is in their hands as they bid to seal their place in the May 26 final in Kiev against Real Madrid.“After the game, people acted as if we lost, but we won 5-2. And after a week people say Roma ‘only’ need to win 3-0, but that’s quite a result,” Klopp told a press conference in Rome.“I’m not here to say anything about Barcelona. In that game, Roma were more than ready.“Everybody’s telling us that it’s quite difficult and it’s possible but nobody told Barcelona, because nobody imagined it could happen.“I didn’t need a warning but if I did, there it was. We’re in a much better situation than I would have thought before the game, that’s the truth.– ‘Fight for our dreams’ –“Whatever I say, we still have to play, and I really like that fact.“We are here to fight for our dreams, that’s how it is, and we want to go to the final as you can imagine,” the Liverpool boss continued.“But that means there is a football game to play and I am really looking forward to it because that’s what you want. You want to play when it is big stakes for the big things, and that is why we are here. It is a great opportunity.”Di Francesco insisted his side “want to try and do something big in a stadium with 70,000 people”.“The desire to make another miracle happen must push us all to give that extra something.”The safety of fans in the Italian capital has overshadowed the build-up, with 3,000 police officers deployed around the city for the match after a Liverpool fan was attacked by hard-core Roma ultras outside the club’s Anfield stadium last week and left in a coma.Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum said that the Liverpool squad had been “devastated” to hear about the condition of the fan, Sean Cox.“It’s a game and everybody has to be safe and enjoy it,” he said.Roma’s players showed their support for Cox by wearing shirts bearing the words “Forza Sean” (Come on Sean) during a training session on Tuesday, but the atmosphere in the city remains tense.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
0Shares0000The Video assistant referee (VAR), which was tested in Germany, can now be consulted even if the onfield referee did not commit an obvious errorNYON, Switzerland, Sep 27 – Video Assistant Referees will be used in the Champions League from the 2019-20 season and will also be introduced at the 2020 European Championship, UEFA said on Thursday.European football’s governing body revealed a decision had been taken at a meeting of their executive committee to bring in the technology, which will be used from the playoff round preceding the group stage of the Champions League. It will also be used in next year’s UEFA Super Cup and in the Europa League from the 2020-21 season.In addition, it will be used in the finals of the new Nations League competition, although only from 2021.UEFA’s move follows the use of VAR at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, when it was deemed largely to be a success.“We’re confident that introducing VAR in August 2019 will give us enough time to put in place a robust system and to train match officials to ensure an efficient, successful implementation of VAR in the UEFA Champions League, the world’s flagship club competition,” UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said.UEFA were meeting at their Swiss headquarters ahead of the announcement later of the winning bid to host Euro 2024, with Germany and Turkey competing for the right to organise the tournament.VAR has also been introduced in the top divisions in Spain and France this season, with those leagues following on from the German Bundesliga and Italian Serie A, although the English Premier League has been more cautious.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

DD EXCLUSIVE: A Donegal village has mistakenly been officially named as Ireland’s capital of crime.Kerrykeel which was wrongly named as Ireland’s crime capital.Kerrykeel came top of the list for a number of serious offences after a computer error by the Central Statistics Office (CSO).The figures were released today as part of the crime statistics for the country for the second quarter of this year. But it was soon discovered that the normally quiet Donegal village, which has a population of around 400, was mixed up with one of Dublin’s busiest areas – Kevin Street.The computer glitch meant that there was a huge increase in recorded crime in every area from burglary to sex offences to fraud.A spokesman for the CSO admitted an error was spotted and then rectified.“The bottom line was that Kerrykeel was mixed up with Kevin Street due to a computer error. “It meant that all of the crimes recorded in the Kevin Street District were attributed to Kerrykeel in Co Donegal.“It was brought to our attention and rectified,” he said.Kerrykeel Garda station is an appointed station with a Sergeant and two Gardai but out-of-hour calls are referred to Milford Garda station.
