Courts Corozal Sacked by Thieves for $5,000

Just before news time on Friday, there was an armed robbery at a popular business establishment.  Police are looking for two persons of interest in connection with the brazen robbery of Courts Belize. The incident reportedly happened on Friday evening around four p.m. and was reported four hours later by the manager of the Corozal Branch. According to Manuel Pech, as a customer was inside the Fifth Avenue store, two men, one armed with a gun entered the establishment demanding money. The cashier was held up and the day’s sales of over five thousand seven hundred dollars were stolen. Even as the robbers were fleeing, they robbed the customer of his belongings. Inspector Wilfredo Ferrufino says luckily no one was injured in the armed robbery.
