Reports indicate that the Route 2 Maxi Taxi Association stated that the incidents occurred over the last two weeks with the most recent incident occurring near Laventille on Monday August 24, 2015.
However while President of the Association Linus Phillip urged passengers and drivers to be vigilant he revealed that there has not been a spike in robberies.
He said that there were two robberies recently that engaged the Association’s attention, however he urged the public not to blow the issue out of proportion.
He was speaking a short while ago in a News Power Now interview.
He said that while the Association has not seen a heightened police presence on the route, they would usually see more police presence during the Christmas and carnival seasons.
