Two suspects in the Ministry of Public Works payroll heist have been arrested following a shooting incident involving them, police said Thursday.

Deputy Police Commissioner, Seelall Persaud said Kelly Aaron was shot in his abdomen at 2463 Safari Street, North Ruimveldt, Georgetown.

The suspect in the shooting incident has been identified as Lloyd Sadloo who police described as a “known character”.  Other police sources said investigators are working on information that the shooting stemmed from a dispute between the two about the GUY$8 million payroll heist.

That incident occurred on December 19, 2013 shortly after a clerk, a security guard and the vehicle driver arrived with the money at the Public Works Ministry.

At the time of the incident, Sadloo was in the company of Nabadinge Gobin. He was sentenced to four years imprisonment for robbery, police said.
