Soli Arguelles, Victim of Home Invasion

We’ve been reporting on the growing number of robberies at businesses and residences on the north side of Belize City. Over the weekend, a well-known couple was targeted on Saturday night in a home invasion at the residence of seventy-two-year-old Solangel Arguelles on Baymen Avenue in Belize City. Miss Soli of Florasol and her husband Mario were at home when two armed, masked men broke into their house; they demanded access to the safe.  The men tied up the elderly florist before proceeding to take five hundred dollars in cash, some scrap jewelry, two cell phones and a vehicle. The vehicle was later recovered in the Belmopan/Roaring Creek area.

“Sometime around or between the hours of one and two a.m., she was in her room asleep and when she noticed the light in the kitchen went on and after a couple seconds it went off. She believed it was her husband and she got up and was seated on her bed when two masked individuals entered her bedroom. They held her down and demanded money. They inquired about a safe and she led them to where the safe was and she showed them. They tied her up and left her in the room and she heard as if the house was being ransacked. The men later re-entered the room where she was and they asked her for the keys for the gate. She directed them to those keys as well and shortly after she heard the engine for a vehicle starting. She made her way to the bedroom where her husband was and shortly after they called police and from checks that they made in the house they discovered that cell phones were missing and some jewelry valuing about a hundred and fifty dollars and a vehicle, a Volkswagen Amarok; that vehicle was discovered in the Belmopan area shortly after. That vehicle was processed and that investigation on-going.”
