POLICE SUSPECT GUARDS, OTHERS SUSPECTED OF CIGARETTE PLOT By Isabel Rey, Cuba Free Press.

RANCHUELOS - Police have arrested eight people - five residents and two guards of Ranchuelos and a cigarette factory security guard - while they investigate a probable robbery attempt.

According to Reinaldo Cabezas of the Reflection Movement, some of the eight climbed a lamppost to get inside the factory. Then they allegedly planned to throw five bags full of cigarette packs to the street below.

The occasional pacing of a nearby policeman prevented the attempted robbery which up to that moment had not been detected by the factory security guard. Shortly afterwards, that guard fired some gunshots into the air.

Police took the men to the Police Instruction Headquarters in the city of Santa Clara, the provincial capital, where they await the results of the investigation.
