The Argyle International Airport (AIA) said Wednesday it had “no comment” on an armed robbery at its parking lot on Sunday.

On Monday, iWitness News contacted Tabia Matthews, a spokesperson at the airport and was told that she would have to first speak to the Chief Executive officer of the airport, Hadley Bourne before commenting.

Subsequent calls to Matthews on Tuesday went unanswered.

When we contacted her again on Wednesday, Matthews said the airport had no comment on the crime.

“There will be no comment,” Matthews said.

Asked if the AIA had anything to say to reassure persons who might be using its facilities in the wake the crime, Matthews said, “There will be no comment at this time.”

    Need to have a well secured collection point.A booth with bullet-proof glass and burglar bars with a/c of course and an armed security firm (vehicle) should be collecting from that booth, not an attendant transporting single-handedly. Time to “Up de T’ing!”
