Within two hours of being robbed of her SUV and jewels, a Cascade woman got some good news from the police.

The vehicle, a black Nissan X-Trail valued at $272,000, was recovered in Port of Spain by officers of the Belmont Police Station and it is to be examined by crime scene investigators for workable prints.

Police were told that it had been stolen at gunpoint at about 3.30p.m. on Tuesday along Richmond Terrace Knight Bridge in Cascade.

The victim, a 36-year-old woman, had just arrived at her home, when a blue Hyundai Tucson pulled up behind her.

Two men exited the car, one armed with a firearm.

The men relieved the woman of several items of jewellery including a ruby gem, two wedding bands, and her engagement ring, worth $54,000.

The men also took the keys to the woman’s SUV, and they drove off in the vehicle.

The police were notified and a team of officers led by Cpl Ramcharran and PC James responded.

The officers got a tip off that led them to recover the SUV.

The jewels were not found.

Police will review CCTV footage from cameras in the area to help determine the identities of the two men.
