Five employees of BK Group of Companies were taken into police custody Saturday afternoon after they were caught allegedly stealing Mack Trucks spare parts from the company valued approximately GUY$40 million.
The company said in a statement that the men were assisting police with their investigations.
The items allegedly stolen include but are not limited to a computer box, fuel pumps, hubs, brake liners, fuel injectors, axles, batteries, lights, wheel seals, steering ends, deferential seals, clutch plates, pressure plates, dump pump, break booster, wheel bearings, ratchet, and stabiliser bars.
“The company recognized that many of its trucks’ spare parts and other equipment were being stolen over the past year but was only able to catch those stealing the Group’s property this week,” said the company.
Collectively, the employees have worked with the BK Group for more than 20 years. Investigations are continuing. The company said it expected the men to be charged and placed before the court.
