The gunmen who pulled off a brazen daylight attack on a Beryllium security team as it attempted to replenish cash at a SCOTIABANK ABM at Braeton Parkway in Portmore, St. Catherine on Sunday, escaped with approximately 23-million dollars.

That’s according to head of Communications at the Guardsman Group, Lieutenant Commander George Overton.

Commander Overton says the entity continues to make operational changes as it looks to provide greater security for crews tasked with the dangerous job of transporting cash and other valuables across the island.

Beryllium is a member of the Guardsman Group.

Commander Overton says the guards who were shot and injured are recovering well.

Sunday’s incident was the second attack on a Beryllium courier team in Portmore in the last three weeks.

On February 27, gunmen attacked a team at Portmore Pines plaza, killing one security guard and injuring two others.

Meanwhile, thousands of customers experienced significant delays at several Automated Banking Machines, ABMs, across the island, due to yesterday’s attack.

JMMB Bank advised of cash disruptions at its Portmore, Liguanea, Fairview, Haughton, Mandeville and Ocho Rios locations.

Customers of National Commercial Bank experienced delays at its drop-box deposits, ABM services and cash pick-up services islandwide.

And Scotiabank’s Portmore Pines branch, the scene of Sunday’s heist was closed to the pubic today.
