Lamb detained following botched B.T.B. robbery

Clarence Lamb

Twenty-two year-old Clarence Lamb, one of two Belize City men involved in an unsuccessful attempt to rob the Belize Tourism Board’s main office on Wednesday afternoon, is expected to face charges for his role in the botched heist.  It is reported that Lamb entered the building, located at the corner of Regent and South streets, armed with a handgun.  He was accompanied by another man, who was wielding a knife.  After relieving a female cashier of one thousand, seven hundred and thirty-two dollars in cash the pair exited the building where they were confronted by security personnel.  A scuffle between Lamb and the guard followed, resulting in the unemployed resident of Wagner’s Lane being shot in the right calf as he tried to make off with the money.  A search of the vicinity yielded a purple cash box containing three hundred dollars, as well as a dark blue pan carrying a thousand, four hundred and thirty-two dollars in Belizean currency.  Lamb’s accomplice remains at large.
