Cops bust robbery in progress

A late morning hold-up took place today in the West Landivar area when two armed gunmen entered Eric’s Store on Bachelors Avenue where they proceeded to hold up the store’s attendants.  According to police press officer Sergeant Fitzroy Yearwood, the incident has not officially been reported; however, sometime around eleven-thirty the business which is being ran by a Chinese couple came under fire when the armed assailants demanded money.  News Five also understands that several shots were fired during the incident and while an ambulance later responded to the scene we could not ascertain if anyone was injured.  Police arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and were busy reviewing surveillance footage from the store’s security camera.  An investigation into the incident remains ongoing.

    The Robbers/ Gunman should have shot anf killed on the scene, to eliminate all the bs in the future. Examples needs to made plain and simple. Look how many of these Chinese people get gun down for trying to earn a honest living

    Thats the way all Belizeans should think. Eliminate these animals. They are a danger to our future. They are the ones who will secure hardships for our grandchildren. They are useless to our society. Please do not let religion get involved. We are talking about our survival. When you find roaches in your house what do you do?We need to come together and get rid of all the bad seeds in our land.
