The police have upped the reward being offered for information leading to the arrest of two men wanted in connection with the armed robbery of an America Street cambio last month, to half a million dollars each.

A press release issued yesterday by the police said the force was continuing its efforts to bring to justice the bandits involved in the crime.

A reward is being offered for suspected gang leader Lindon London known as 'Blackie', 'Stan', 'Mr Da Silva' and James Hector. The other reward is for Andrew Peter Douglas, 38, of Crane Housing Scheme, West Coast Demerara and 127 King Edward Street, Albouystown.

The previous rewards offered for the two men were $250,000 each.

Douglas was released from prison in May after being sentenced in 1995 for causing death by dangerous driving, break and enter and larceny and possession of house-breaking implements. Anyone with information is asked to contact the police on telephone numbers 53650, 61326, 69941, 60192, 52227, 66978 or 58196.
