Police Nabs Robber and Recovers $35,000 in Jewelry in Minutes

There was a brazen armed robbery this afternoon in Belize City at Pacheco’s Jewelry Shop. Two thieves almost netted thirty-five grand – we say almost because quick police action led to the recovery of the items and the apprehension of one man in a matter of minutes.  We were first on the scene this afternoon when we encountered law enforcement officers apprehending a man carrying a small backpack on Orange Street. After he was detained, the authorities searched and drove him over to the store on East Collet Canal where the robbery happened. According to police, around twelve-twenty, Brittney Myers reported that she was at work when two men entered the establishment. One of them pointed a gun at her, while the other searched the showcase and took a trove of gold and silver jewelry valued at thirty-five thousand dollars. Police responded quickly and nabbed one of the robbers seen in the back of the police truck. But the good news is that police recovered all the stolen items.
