Robbers Target Butane Delivery Truck in Hattieville

Alejandro Cowo

Two armed robbers held up two butane delivery-men in Hattieville on Friday. Salesman Tyrique Arana and his co-worker were out delivering gas around ten-thirty that morning when they were approached by the pair of thieves. The men used t-shirts with cut-out holes for their eyes to conceal their identity. ASP Alejandro Cowo says that a small amount of cash and a cell-phone were stolen.

While delivering gas, along with his co-assistant, they were held up at gun-point by two male persons who robbed them of one hundred and fifty dollars and a cell-phone. Therefore, the two male persons made good their escape within the bushes in that area.”
