Bandit killed during botched robbery

first_imgA suspected bandit was shot and killed while three of his accomplices were nabbed on Saturday during a failed armed robbery on a city diamond dealership.The incident occurred at about 12:10h at Kay’s Diamond Enterprise Ltd, a licensed trader of diamonds, which is located Lot 288 Middle and Thomas Streets, Georgetown.Kay’s Diamond Enterprise Ltd where the attempted robbery occurred on SaturdayThe dead man has since been identified as 25-year-old Henry Johanison, a miner. Guyana Times understands the man was shot and killed inside the building after he attempted to carry out a robbery.Police in a subsequent statement said the diamond dealership is owned and managed by a male caucasian, who told investigators that he received a phone call from Johanison on Saturday morning. He said the man indicated that he wanted to buy diamonds and advised him to go to the office.Johanison, the businessman said, arrived at the business establishment at about 12:03h and they had what he described as a “general” conversation before the now dead man asked to use the washroom.“Upon his return from the washroom, Johanison pointed a pistol in the direction of owner who was sitting in his chair behind his desk in the office and told him not to move; but [the businessman] instinctively drew his licensed handgun and discharged several rounds in the direction of Johanison, who was struck in the upper part of his body and he fell [to the ground],” the Police said.The matter was reported and Emergency Medical Technical (EMT) personnel were summoned and pronounced Johanison dead at the scene.The Police said they recovered a 9mm pistol along with eight live matching rounds in the magazine and one round in the breech, which was allegedly in possession of the deceased. The weapon and ammunition have been lodged.Meanwhile upon arrival at the scene, the Police observed a black Toyota Fielder wagon parked outside the premises with three male occupants.The men are believed to be accomplices of Johanison and were allegedly awaiting his return, since they were unaware he had been killed inside the building, which is said to be sound proof.A nearby resident told this newspaper she did not hear any gunshots coming from the building. The woman related that she only realised something was amiss when she heard loud voices outside her home and upon inspection, observed a number or armed Police Officers talking to the occupants in a vehicle.“[The Police] were shouting “Come out the car!”. So I peered through the ventilation blocks and saw the Police, with their weapons drawn; they were spread out,” she recollected.The neighbour further indicated that she went outside, and the Police began searching the vehicle and the three occupants were just standing around, “acting cool”.She added that it was then that she heard that the men attempted to rob the diamond dealer and one was shot and killed.Nevertheless, the Police said the vehicle in which the three suspects were in was impounded and the men were taken into custody to assist with further investigations.Meanwhile, the body of the now dead miner, who is reportedly a known character to the authorities, was removed from the scene by undertakers and taken to the Lyken Funeral Home, where it awaits a post-mortem examination.last_img read more

Another case of a firehouse prank surfaces

first_imgThe firefighter reported the incident to his superiors, who called in the Los Angeles Police Department to investigate. The prank was reported within the last month and provides the first true test of Interim Chief Douglas Barry, who has taken a “no-tolerance” stance against hazing and discrimination in the 3,500-member department. “The fire chief takes any alleged or actual incidents of hazing or discrimination very seriously,” Cooper said. “The Fire Department has zero tolerance of such behavior.” Barry’s predecessor, LAFD Chief William Bamattre, also was brought in as a reformer a decade ago amid similar complaints of discrimination and hazing – inappropriate behavior the frat-boy firehouse culture at the time condoned. While he enacted a zero-tolerance policy and expanded human relations training, critics said Bamattre, who retired Jan. 1, failed to ensure compliance. And an audit last year by City Controller Laura Chick found inconsistent discipline, discrimination and a desire by some to downplay offenses within the department. Despite a series of highly publicized and costly complaints over horseplay and discrimination within the Los Angeles Fire Department that exposed taxpayers to massive liability, another case involving a prank against an African-American firefighter has surfaced. LAFD officials have confirmed they are investigating accusations of racial harassment made by an African-American firefighter at Fire Station 89 in North Hollywood. “There is currently an active investigation taking place to determine the details of the incident, and out of that, steps will be taken within the department to address it,” said Battalion Chief Kwame Cooper, an LAFD spokesman. Sources said the incident involved an unidentified African-American firefighter who had recently completed probation. He reported someone had broken into his locker and left a banana and white lotion on his uniform. City Fire Commissioner Genethia Hudley-Hayes, who worked with the rank-and-file last year to tighten the LAFD’s discipline policy, praised Barry. “He very aggressively head-on took preemptive action,” she said. “I think it’s a good thing. We got an action plan and the new discipline guidelines. “The fact that LAPD was called – a fire person’s locker was broken into, and that’s a crime – that does show there is a different mind-set, which I absolutely applaud.” Armando Hogan, president of the Stentorians, an African-American firefighters association, also appreciated the swift action, though he cautioned the department to also maintain fairness and due process. “What we want to do is to allow the department to conduct this investigation and to take into account the well-being of the firefighters involved, to give them fair and equal opportunity to tell their side of the story,” he said. Complaints against the LAFD have cost the city more than $4 million since 2000, with more pricey payouts likely on the way. Earlier this month, a jury awarded $1.73 million to Lewis S. Bressler, a Los Angeles firefighter who said he was forced to retire for blowing the whistle on harassment of a colleague. That firefighter, Brenda Lee, has a pending case against the city alleging harassment by her superiors because she is African-American and a lesbian. Also unresolved is the case of former firefighter Tennie Pierce, an African-American who filed a discrimination suit after dog food was slipped into his dinner in what colleagues said was a prank. The City Council had approved a $2.7 million settlement, a sum that sparked public outrage. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa subsequently vetoed it, and the case is headed for trial this fall. eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

HARPS HOPE TO SHAKE OFF LOSING STREAK AGAINST WATERFORD

first_imgLeague of Ireland football returns on Friday night after the mid-season break and Finn Harps will be hoping for a change in fortunes as they make the long trip to the RSC to face Waterford United (kick-off 7.45pm).Sean McCarron will play up front for HarpsHarps went into the break on the back of a three game losing streak in the league and team boss Peter Hutton feels the break may just have come at the right time for his troops.“Given the nature of the last few performances, then yes I think the break came at the right time. Mentally I think a few of the players needed a break whilst a few had knocks or injuries that the rest will certainly have helped. The short break will, we hope, have helped in allowing the group to take stock and refocus now for the second half of the season,” said Hutton. Harps’ last outing two weeks ago came against bottom of the table Salthill Devon who recorded their first home victory of the season courtesy of a 2-1 victory.“It was a very disappointing result”, said Hutton of the defeat in Drom. “We have actually played worse and won this season but unfortunately if you don’t take your chances then you will get punished and that’s exactly what happened.“We had enough chances to win two or three games but didn’t convert them and then conceded from a penalty that set us back. We got ourselves back on track with ten minutes to go but again shot ourselves in the foot by some sloppy defending allowing them to sneak a winner in the final minutes.”The defeat in Salthill was Harps’ third in a row in the league with losses in Wexford (2-1) and at home to Athlone Town (3-2) preceding the game in Galway. In the Wexford and Athlone games, Harps actually took the lead (twice against Athlone) but still ended up losing, while the game in Salthill saw Harps fight back to level but still lost the game. Prior to that, Harps had only lost twice all season. “The 3 games we’ve lost have been difficult to stomach as we have been the architects of our own downfall,” said Hutton. “Those games in question it has been our own decision making or lack of making the right decisions in certain situations has cost us, not the quality of the opposition, so in that regard it has been very frustrating. To have led in two of the games then get nothing from it has been difficult but we need to learn and quickly.”Another difficult game awaits on Friday night against a Waterford side who have already beaten Harps at Finn Park this season.“Waterford are starting to build a bit of momentum and the players are basically playing for the careers with the arrival of a new manager imminent,” said Hutton of Friday’s trip to the south-east.“They have improved of late and have already made three new signings with more to come so they are going to prove a difficult opponent no doubt.”Harps have a decent record at the RSC in recent seasons and are unbeaten in their last four trips to Waterford. The opening day meeting of the two sides at the same venue finished in a 1-1 draw, with Sean McCarron grabbing a last minute equaliser for Harps. Tommy Bonner will sit out Friday’s game through suspension, while Gary Merritt is only returning to full health after a bout of flu.

BRITISH POLICE ASK PORTUGESE OFFICIALS TO DETAIN SUSPECTS IN MADELEINE McCANN CASE

first_imgMadeleine in Donegal, pictured second from left in April 2007. She disappeared in Portugal two weeks later.BRITISH police have asked their Portugese counterparts to arrest three suspects in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.The three-year-old – whose father has strong Donegal connections – disappeared from a holiday apartment in Portugal in 2007.The Metropolitan Police in London assigned to Operation Grange want to talk to three burglars who carried out raids in the Portuguese resort at the time of the abduction. Mobile phone records showed the suspects made numerous calls to each other in the hours after she disappeared.The Crown Prosecution Service has sent an International Letter of Request to ­Portuguese police seeking permission to arrest the trio.A spokesman for Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry said: “The letter is a significant development. It is necessary for British police to request the ­Portuguese authorities allow them to operate on their turf.“It means they have the intention of arresting and interviewing X, Y or Z. We don’t know who they have their sights on but it’s likely it is the burglars. “Whether the Portuguese will co-operate remains to be seen. It is a very sensitive issue with differences they have had.“Police want to be given a chance to arrest key suspects. It doesn’t prove they have Madeleine but it will rule them in or out of the investigation and that is i­mportant.“Kate and Gerry don’t want to build up their hopes too high but they realise it could be a significant new lead.”  BRITISH POLICE ASK PORTUGESE OFFICIALS TO DETAIN SUSPECTS IN MADELEINE McCANN CASE was last modified: January 13th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:burglarsdonegalmadeleine mccannmissingpoliceportugalsuspectslast_img read more

Edison to raise prices

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ROSEMEAD – Southern California Edison will raise its electricity rates 15 percent next year, largely because of a hike in natural gas prices, company officials said Monday.“It’s basically a pass- through on our customers,” said Akbar Jazayeri, director of revenue and tariffs of the Rosemead-based utility company. “We don’t make any profit off it.”The first rate hike of 6 percent kicks in Jan. 1, followed by another 6-percent increase in February.In November, rates will rise an additional 3 percent. That hike is not related to the price of natural gas.Natural gas is responsible for about 45 percent of the electricity generated by SCE. Electricity generated from natural gas makes up about 55 percent of SCE’s output.Other fuel sources for creating SCE electricity are nuclear (20 percent); renewable sources like wind and solar (19 percent); coal (13percent); and large hydroelectric (3 percent).Tier one and tier two residential electricity users – those who use the least electricity in their homes – will not see an increase in their bills, said Paul Kline, an Edison spokesman.However, it’s easy to become a tier three or tier four user.“We would feel it,” said Covina resident Jake Vic. “Because of the fact that we run the air conditioning and heating all the time.”Residential users should check their electricity bills to see which tier they fall into, Kline said.The price hikes also will have an effect on businesses, Kline said.But compared with the steep rise in gasoline and natural gas costs, the rise in electricity prices might not hurt too badly, said Don Sachs, executive director of the Industry Manufacturers Council.“I don’t think it’s going to be a major issue,” Sachs said. “It’s not going to be as bad compared to the blackouts.”The 15 percent rise in prices is smaller than price hikes consumers and businesses have seen this year for gasoline, natural gas and heating oil, according to SCE.SCE has a diverse portfolio of electricity generation, which has cut down on costs for consumers. The utility company also has a “hedging” program that secures long-term natural gas contracts. According to SCE, these programs will save consumers hundreds of millions of dollars next year. jason.kosareff@sgvn.com(626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717last_img read more
