Chopping victim succumbs to wounds

Fitzroy Yearwood

A recent victim of robbery passed away and now the crime has been upgraded to murder. He is murder victim number forty. On April twelfth, two salesmen were robbed at Belize Food Supply on the Northern Highway.  After nine p.m. a truck driven by Carlos Alvarado and his sideman Armando Castellanos entered the compound of the business when they were attacked by a male person wielding a machete. Castellanos was injured while he was opening the gate and Alvarado was robbed of the day’s sales in cash and cheques by another armed assailant. Castellanos had been hospitalized since the incident two weeks ago. The Police Press Officer gave News Five an update.

Sergeant Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“Armando Castellanos; he was a victim of a robbery that occurred and he succumbed to his injuries earlier this morning.”

Marion Ali, Love TV

“Any arrests?”

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood

“No not as yet and we are still looking for a person of interest in that case also.”

During the incident, Nolberto Leiva, the Orange Walk branch manager, who had arrived in a separate truck, broke his leg while fleeing into nearby bushes. The robbers got away with six thousand dollars cash and thirty thousand dollars in cheques.

    another murder in this area and Belama Police Station still closed down!!!!! But all the Honorable Ministers were out of the country shopping and vacationing on the beaches while Belize City burns… so much of them were away that they had to put Peter Eden Martinez as Acting Prime Minister.. did you imagine this possibility!!!
