The identities of the four accused are being withheld pending further investigations.
Reports by the Ocho Rios police are that about 10:00 p.m. on Thursday, a team of officers were carrying out vehicular spot checks, along a section of the Oracabessa main road, when they received a radio message that a robbery was in progress.
Minutes later, the policemen intercepted a Nissan Tida motor car, fitting the description of the one used in the robbery, and signaled the driver to stop.
