Robbers Stopped at M&L Collections on “The Alberts”…

Businesses along Albert Street have become the target of thieves in recent days, despite a noticeable police presence in the downtown area of Belize City.  Last Thursday, we reported on a pair of armed robberies during which the culprits made off with cash from the proceeds of the day’s sales.  The thieves struck at Hofius during the lunch hour, before holding up the proprietor and employees of Nacho World sometime later.  While they were able to get away with a thousand dollars in various denominations from that location, it is unclear how much money they stole from Nacho World since no formal report was made to police.  Late this evening, a pair of robbers struck again. They had their eyes on M and L Collection, a wholesale and retail store, adjacent to Mirage on Albert Street in the height of the rush hour at around five. Information provided to News Five is that storeowner, Sunil Balani was not present, but his wife experienced the ordeal. While unconfirmed, it is said that the robbers were dressed in security uniforms, parked their bicycles outside the store before accosting the woman. It is not yet ascertained what, if anything was stolen, but at this early stage, police would only say that the robbery was foiled.  Police were able to respond and were on hand to process the scene.
