Marlboro Shop Robbed

In addition to the shootings, there was other crime over the weekend. Just before one o’clock on Saturday afternoon, the proprietor of Malboro Shop located on Freetown Road, was robbed at gunpoint and hit in the head with a weapon. Four men entered his store and proceeded to rob him of a laptop, an I-pod and an undisclosed amount of cash.  The culprits then escaped in a waiting vehicle. Police Press Officer Raphael Martinez explains.

“At about twelve-forty-five p.m., we had three make persons that went to number thirty-four Freetown Road, Marlboro Shop, owned by of course Belizean-Chinese business persons and they were held at gunpoint and robbed of electronic items and cash of over six thousand dollars and of course the guys all took off and the police have not gotten any one of them. We have not detained anybody, but we are following several leads regarding this robbery. Based on that information, I just want to share that it seems there is a trend especially around this time that businesses are being robbed. Again, we want to appeal to business owners; if you don’t have the DVRs and the security cameras, please ensure that you take some adequate security measures to protest your business. It seems that we do have some culprits who are lurking, casing business areas with the intension of making easy money. So please remember as we always say safety begins with you.”
