NEW YORK — The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for help leading to the arrest of a Caribbean immigrant, who is wanted for his alleged involvement in the armed robbery of a restaurant in Woodbridge, New Jersey.

The agency said it needs help in finding Trinidad and Tobago national Kofi Edwards, who also goes by the names Richard Jackson, Koj Edward Touissaint, Koof Touissaint, Koof Toussaint and Kofi Toussaint.

On March 17, 2009, Edwards, 44, and others allegedly entered the Woodbridge restaurant, and, at gunpoint, tied up three individuals and robbed the establishment of a large sum of money.

A federal arrest warrant was issued for Edwards in the United States District Court in Newark on August 6, 2012 after he was charged with Hobbs Act Armed Robbery and Use of a Firearm.

The 190-pound Edwards should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with any information concerning Edwards should contact local authorities in Trinidad at 800-8477, your local FBI office, or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.

Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
