Still No Arrest for Robbery at Sun Luck Store in Orange Walk

On Wednesday night, we showed you surveillance footage that captured the armed robbery of a store on Zericote Street, in the Louisiana area of Orange Walk Town. Just after seven p.m. on Tuesday night, a pair of thieves targeted Sun Luck Store and rode off with nine hundred dollars, but not before pistol whipping the proprietor. A single shot was fired in the direction of the store as the thieves got away. Police told the media today that no one has been detained at this time for the crime.

“The owner reported to them that sometime around seven-fifteen p.m., two Hispanic males entered his shop—both of whom had their faces covered with cloth—and one pointed a firearm at him and demanded money. He was apparently hit with the firearm several times before giving up an undisclosed amount of money after which both persons made good their escape. At this point in time, police are following several leads, but so far, we have no one detained in relation to this investigation.”
