Story Picture
A break in at the posh home of a Belize City businessman has left him and his wife considerably poorer. Sometime Sunday night while Mr. and Mrs. Bob Hotchandani slept peacefully at their house on the Newtown Barracks thieves entered through a second story window. After helping themselves to cold drinks from the refrigerator the burglars next quenched their thirst for gold by helping themselves to Mrs. Hotchandani’s extensive collection of jewelry. They also removed the cash from Mr. Hotchandani’s pockets as well as several valuable watches, including a Rolex, as well as some gold and diamond bracelets. Total value of the heist is said to be in the neighborhood of forty thousand dollars. Hotchandani is owner of Planet Hollywood Nightclub, among other ventures. A substantial reward is being offered for apprehension of the thieves.
