Motor vehicle thefts in the City

Raphael Martinez

Aside from the foiled robbery at Jian Vin Store, there were other crimes over the weekend. A B.T.L. technician of Belize City reported that this past Saturday, he arrived home along with his girlfriend in his Mazda Protégé car which he parked on the street side. As he was exiting the vehicle two men riding on separate bicycles accosted him. One of them pushed him against the car and proceeded to rob him of a BlackBerry cell phone valued three hundred and fifty dollars and his car keys. The other assailant got into the car and drove away while the other rode off over the Belcan Bridge. Less than twenty-four hours later, police recovered the vehicle which was found in the vicinity of the Raccoon Police Station. Police Press Officer, Raphael Martinez, spoke of the incidents.

“A B.T.L. technician of Belize City reported that at approximately four a.m., he arrived at home where he parked his 1994 four-door Mazda Protégé car. While he was getting out, two dark complexion male persons riding on separate bicycles approached him. One of the male person then pushed him to the car and proceeded to rob him of some personal items and cash. They also took the keys of his car and made good their escape. On Saturday, the twelfth of January at approximately seven p.m. police recovered his car and this car was found on Raccoon Street Extension, Belize City. Police are still looking for these two men.

The other one was a Customer Care Representative of Belize City, reported that between five-forty-five and ten-fifteen on Friday the eleventh of January, a red motorcycle was stolen whilst parked in her yard. Police have since recovered that red motorcycle and it happened because they visited this station, Raccoon Street, where they saw this motorcycle that was involved in an accident. However, so far we cannot ascertain who this person was that was on this motorcycle that was involved in this accident. That motorcycle has been recovered and the person who it was stolen from has identified that this motorcycle is hers. So police again are investigating this incident.”


In the other incident, a stolen motorcycle was crashed and recovered days later.  The owner spotted the cycle at the police station and claimed that it was hers.

    It’s not clear from the story, was the motorcycle reported stolen before or after the accident?
