Robber captured following Bowen Robbery

The Western Highway wasn’t the only road that was dangerous. But instead of a dangerous curve, two workers found themselves at the receiving end of the barrel of a gun.  On Friday December twenty-third around three-thirty in the afternoon, Jaime Salguero, driver of Bowen & Bowen Limited reported to police that he was returning from the day’s sales from St. Margaret’s Village to Dangriga when he was held up. Salguero said that he and William Mariano and Noel Acosta, also Bowen and Bowen employees, were slowing down at a speed bump in front of the Middlesex Primary School near mile twenty four on the Humming Bird Highway when three men dressed in black clothing wearing masks fired three shots at the truck’s windshield and ordered them to stop. Salguero and the two other employees were ordered to exit the truck and lie face down on the side of the road. The robbers took Salguero’s three hundred dollars, shot the cash pan, then took seven thousand dollars cash. A police superintendent who was passing at the time of the robbery engaged in crossfire with the assailants who fled the area via a nearby citrus orchard. Dangriga police retrieved six expended shells from the scene and have since detained thirty-three year old Hermain Solis, and a seventeen-year-old minor.
