WestStar TV have just announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the robbers.

George Town detectives investigating an armed robbery at WestStar TV have released photographs of two of the suspects and the getaway vehicle.

Shortly before 3.00pm yesterday (Thursday, 24 May 2012) three masked men, two of whom were armed with what appeared to be firearms, entered the Television Centre offices in Eclipse Drive, George Town.

The men threatened staff and customers before making off with a sum of cash.

No shots were fired during the robbery and no staff or customers were injured.

The suspects then entered a getaway vehicle which was parked outside the front door with a waiting driver. They then drove off towards Eastern Avenue.

A short time later police found an abandoned car in School Road and are confident this was the vehicle used in the robbery.

The car is a wine coloured Mitsubishi RVR and displayed the license plates 101878.

 Three people were arrested yesterday following the incident however all three have since been eliminated from this enquiry.

The police are appealing to anyone who may have been in the areas of Eclipse Drive, Eastern Avenue or School Road who may have seen the suspects or the getaway vehicle to make contact with them.
