Pair of Minors from Saint Martin’s Arraigned for Belmopan Robbery

Joseph Myvett

Going into the weekend, we reported on the brazen robbery in Belmopan in which two minors were involved; they were caught at the bus terminal with the loot and a recreational weapon in hand. The two young men, a fifteen and a sixteen-year-old from the Saint Martin’s area of Belize City, were today arraigned in court for the robbery with a firearm of Tai San Shop in the Capital. The entire incident was captured on surveillance footage as they held up the owner with a pellet gun before trying to escape by returning to the Old Capital. Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett gave the media an update today.


ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“Quick police into this investigation led to the detention of two Belize City minors, who have since been arrested and charged for the crime of robbery. Some monies were recovered along with liquors, cigarettes and a handgun which is a pellet gun that was suspected to have been used in the commission of the crime.”



“Is it your belief that these minors travelled from Saint Martin’s area of Belize City where they live and all the way to Belmopan for the purpose of the commission of a robbery?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“Well we have not been able to establish that other than to say that they are both from Belize City—one is from Evergreen Street while the other is from Santa Barbara Street.”



“Do they have any relatives or any case of abode in Belmopan?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“So far, our investigation has not been able to establish that.”
