Masked bandits hit Belama supermarket for cash/phone cards

A brazen morning robbery in Belama has netted thieves more than two thousand dollars in cash and goods. According to police reports, around eleven-thirty on Tuesday morning, two men, masked and armed with a handgun, entered Julie’s Supermarket on Albert Hoy Street and held up employees. One robber pointed the weapon at the victims, while the other attacked the cash register, pulling out six hundred dollars in cash and sixteen hundred dollars worth of B.T.L. phone cards. Not satisfied with his loot, that man went to the back of the shop where he ripped off a gold chain from the store-owner’s mother. The thugs made their getaway in a black four door Mazda car. If you have any information that may assist the police in their investigations into this case, please contact the nearest station or call CrimeStoppers at 0-800-922-TIPS.
