Over 12 Grand Stolen in Highway Robbery

Wilfredo Ferrufino

An employee of Bee Line Company was robbed of over twelve thousand dollars, the proceeds from November’s collections in the area.  The highway robbery occurred in the vicinity of San Jose Village. As the employee headed towards Orange Walk, he was cut off by another vehicle; two armed men alighted the vehicle and held him up before escaping with the bag containing money from the day’s sales.  Luckily, Edison Calles was not hurt, but police say that they have been unable to determine who carried out the robbery and if it was an inside job.

“Edison Calles, a twenty-seven-year-old collecting agent for Bee Line, reported that he was on the Phillip Goldson Highway and was exiting San Jose Village, heading in the direction of Orange Walk. He was driving his vehicle and another vehicle passed him and stopped immediately in front of him, causing him to stop his vehicle. Two armed individual exited that vehicle, they were both masked and approached his vehicle and relieved him of a bag which had twelve thousand two hundred and eighty-two dollars, which was the month’s collection for Bee Line Company. That matter is under investigation.”
