No love at One Love Store as 2 gunmen hold up clerk

While visitor numbers are up, crime is also escalating in the prime tourist destination, San Pedro. Before eleven o’clock this morning there was another broad daylight armed robbery. Two armed men stormed into the One Love store situated in the DFC area and held up the lone shop attendant and a customer at gun point.  Seventeen year old Amid Harmouch was at the store when the two masked men, each brandishing a silver gun, entered the store and demanded money. Harmouch was ordered to lie down on the ground. As the thieves were emptying the cash register, a female customer entered the store and was also held at gunpoint. She managed to break loose, ran out of the store and began screaming for help. The armed men then exited the business taking with them an undisclosed amount of cash, a Toshiba laptop and Nokia phone. Residents in the area said that the men jumped on separate bicycles and escaped. The Police responded shortly but no arrest has been made. One Love Store is the second business establishment on Ambergris Caye to be held up at gun point in less than a week.  The Western Union Branch at Ambergris Lake Villas was held at gun point on Friday evening and there was a home invasion at Casa Caracol where a visitor was stabbed.

    I hope the police can solve these robberies, although I’m not going to hold my breath. When they do, if they are arrested alive [not my first choice], they should die in prison.

    Just more evidence that La Isla Bonita has become too peligroso. Was it a mistake to export gang-bangers from the City to San Pedro? You decide.

    GSU doesn’t seem to be deployed anywhere else, so I say let GSU have an island excursion for a month or so, and exterminate the rats there.
