Burglars escaped with some $6.4M on Friday night after breaking into a safe at Arakhan Spares, a business located at Eccles, East Bank Demerara.
Business manager Iqwaz AraKhan said that the theft was discovered at around 8:15hrs yesterday when staff reported for duty.
It was then that the staffers observed a gaping hole in the concrete wall at the back of the building. The robbers also cut open a safe with a blow torch.
Although there were two guards on duty, none of the two guards saw or heard anything. They have since been detained.
AraKhan said that the business entity, which imports truck spares, has been in operation for about seven years.
