Belmopan grocery hit by armed robbers

In Belmopan, an overnight robbery has left a Chinese businessman short of thousands of dollars and the culprits dodging the cops. According to thirty-two year old Charlie Cao of Everyday Supermarket in Belmopan, around nine on Monday night he was collecting the day’s Boledo sales from a number of vendors when two men, one armed with a sawed off shotgun and the other a knife, walked in and ordered everyone on the floor. The robbers helped themselves to an undisclosed amount of cash, believed to be several thousand dollars, and a cellphone, before fleeing the area. No one was hurt in the incident and police are investigating.
