The Liberia National Police (LNP) have arrested four suspected armed robbers, among them, the notorious Prince Walters, 24, for their involvement in a series of armed robberies in the Paynesville and Johnsonville communities outside Monrovia.
Suspect Walters, according to the police, is a resident of Barnersville Township, but was arrested in Johnsonville. He has been on the run from the police since 2013.
Others are identified as Myers Neville, 39, Morris Beyan, 36, and Moses Kwenah, 29, all residents of Paynesville City.
The four robbers were arrested with three single barrel guns and rounds of ammunition after they allegedly attacked a number of homes in the two communities.
A knife, a pair of scissors, two short single barrel pistols and a machete were discovered by the police during the arrest of the suspects.
According to an LNP release, the four suspected robbers are being investigated by the police.
The LNP is meanwhile encouraging community residents to assist the police with information in their fight against armed robbery and other deadly crimes.
The LNP is at the same time informing members of the public that it will take drastic action against anyone or group of individuals who conceal information that could lead to the arrest of suspected armed robbers or anyone who commits a crime.
In a related development, police in Monrovia have stepped up their search for five unidentified gun men who reportedly robbed a 32 year old resident of Mango Town in Virginia last Wednesday night, April 13.
The men, according to the victim, were armed with single barrel guns and cutlasses when they reportedly gained entry into his house by removing one of the window bars with an unknown object, and putting his family under gun point.
The victim informed police that the robbers took away 16 pieces of cell phones belonging to his customers and an unspecified amount of United States dollars.
“The LNP upon arriving on the scene, recovered the residue of the gun shots that were fired,” the release disclosed.
The LNP is encouraging residents of Virginia to assist them with any information that will lead to the arrest of the suspects.
