Alleged victims fake robbery

An armed robbery reported to police last week was in fact a hoax perpetrated by the alleged victims. On Thursday twenty-three year old Rene Miranda, a truck driver for Femagra Industries, told authorities that two dark complexioned men held him up at gunpoint while he was driving down Police Street in Belize City. They relieved him of four hundred dollars in company funds and escaped. Further investigation, however, revealed that the holdup was just a make-up and the four hundred dollars was in fact jacked by the driver himself. Miranda and his eighteen year old sideman, Aaron Sabal, have been charged with theft and committing a mischievous act.
