Investigation into Spoonaz Robbery Continues

Proprietor Jeremy Spooners was robbed under the threat of being shot on Monday night while in the process of locking up his business on North Front Street.  During the holdup at Spoonaz Café, a lone gunman successfully made off with approximately five thousand dollars in Belize and U.S. currencies.  Spooners was taken by surprise when someone reportedly dressed as a security guard approached and took aim at him with the firearm.  After relieving the businessman of cash and his licensed nine millimeter handgun, the thief made good his escape from the café.  Inspector Wilfredo Ferrufino shared a few added details of the incident.
