Employee In Shambles After Robbery

The Collectors Hill Esso Service Station fell victim to an armed robbery on November 27 around 5:30am, it was said that two suspects brandished a bladed article and accosted a member of staff at the place of business, making off with an undisposed amount of cash and cigarettes. TNN spoke with the owner, Craig Cannonier, regarding the incident.



“I cannot right now speak on the amount of money that was stolen or whether there were other materials taken during the robbery due to the fact this is an active investigation. Unfortunately, however, there was a member of BUZZ who was accosted during this robbery and at this point she is very disturbed and still frightened from the actual event that took place. It is very unfortunate in Bermuda that these things are still happening.

“We are actively working with the staff to ensure they are ok after this incident. We are looking over our security protocols and we will continue to look out for the best interest of our staff. Our security cameras are in full operation and once the likes of forensics showed up we allowed them full access to hopefully assist in catching the perpetrators. The incident that took place happened very quickly but does not minimize the devastating effect it had on that staff member.  

“I can’t say that I am comfortable with the thought of the perpetrator being caught but what I would like to see, due to the fact these incidents take place too often, is that I would like to see more arrests made on a timely basis. I do understand the police have to do what they have to do and I am at the mercy of them at this point.
