2 men arraigned for foiled robbery of E’s Cool Spot

Two men have been charged for the foiled robbery last Friday at E’s Cool Spot, a bar in Esperanza Village in the Cayo District. On Tuesday afternoon, twenty-three year old Jake Anthony Cadle and Alvaro Aldana, both of San Ignacio Town, were arraigned inside the San Ignacio Magistrate’s Court for Attempted Robbery. The botched robbery occurred sometime around ten p.m. when it is alleged that Cadle, Aldana and another man, Mark Anthony Conorquie, who is also known as “Fifty Cents” of Belmopan, accosted the patrons at the bar located behind Western Poultry Products at mile sixty-five on the George Price Highway. The trio was armed with a machete, knife and gun. But the robbery was averted when Assistant Superintendent Amin August, the second in charge of the Special Patrol Unit in Belmopan, was shot in the abdomen allegedly by Conorque, who is still at large. Cadle was apprehended by the patrons and Aldana was detained on Monday. August, who was injured from the single blast, was rushed to the Western Regional Hospital where he underwent surgery over the weekend and is now in recovery.

    I was sort of hoping the robbers would resist arrest and get taken dead instead of alive. I still have high hopes for Conorquie’s apprehension.

    Alvaro Aldana still has a number of charges brought against him by the Cayo police including Attempted Murder, Robbery and Possession of an Unlicensed Firearm and yet he is free to roam the countryside to carry out this latest crime in Esperanza. What kind of Justice System allows Repeat Offenders to carry out one Crime after another without fear of punishment? Ah Mi Tell Unu! Change the Law or Change the Lawmakers!
