‘Lazy policing’ enrages hotelier

2013-11-22 00:00

A HOTEL owner is furious with Creighton police who left him, his wife, staff and patrons at the mercy of armed gunmen, and then failed dismally to follow up on information after the robbery.

“The bar normally closes at about 8 pm on a Sunday night, and when the employee went to lock up, five armed men shoved her and three patrons back into the bar. The patrons were told to lie on the floor and the employee was asked what time I would come to the bar to cash up,” said Vermaak.
