Belmopan City employee robbed of payroll

On Monday afternoon, an armed man jacked four thousand dollars from the Belmopan City Council Office while they were paying workers. A man dressed in jeans pants, t-shirt and wearing a cap and sunglasses, joined the line of employees and shortly after held up the pay mistress and stole close to four thousand dollars. Hearing the commotion, a seventeen-year part-time employee went to investigate and that was when the assailant fired a shot but luckily it didn’t meet its target. The man then made good his escape. City Administrator, Dr. Wendell Parham says that investigations are ongoing but he doesn’t believe that it was an inside job. Parham says luckily there were no injuries.
