Two men have been taken into police custody concerning the Boxing Day robbery at a gas station in Vreed-En-Hoop. Dinesh George, a 21-year-old welder, and Navindra Kunik, a 23-year-old man, confessed to the crime. The incident occurred on Boxing Day when four masked, armed men attacked the gas station, stealing a 9mm Smith and Wesson pistol, cash, and other personal belongings from the owner and pump attendant.
The stolen weapon has been recovered. The owner and pump attendant were both beaten and tied up before the suspects escaped in the pump attendant’s car. Both victims were later treated at the hospital. Tiana Cole has the details.
