Early morning burglary at Belize Medical Associates

A pair of masked men entered Belize Medical Associates on St. Thomas Street shortly before dawn today and attempted to make off with two strongboxes containing thousands of dollars in cash and phone cards.  Sometime around four-forty a.m., police received reports of a burglary in progress at the hospital.  Upon responding to the location they observed two men running away from the area.  Despite giving chase, the duo was able to escape, leaving behind one of the two metal safes on the compound.  Scenes of Crime personnel were subsequently called in, as well as the finance officer who ascertained, following a thorough check, that the cash box contained twenty-eight thousand, four hundred and one dollars and ninety-five cents in various denominations.  Another safe containing phone cards is also reported stolen.  This morning, a vehicle believed to be tied to the foiled burglary was towed from the vicinity; however, police are unable to conduct a search because it is locked.  We are not sure how the thieves gained access to the building but we are reliably informed that the overnight security guard may have fallen asleep during his shift, as he was unaware that an intrusion had taken place inside the hospital.
