Dario’s Meat Pies Robbed by Trio of Armed Thieves

Joseph Richards

Twenty-three-year-old Joseph Richards is one of three persons who police believe entered Dario’s Meat Pies on Saturday evening and robbed Nicole Perdomo of a little over thirty thousand dollars in cash, in various denominations.  According to Perdomo she was upstairs of the popular location on Hyde’s Lane counting the money when a pair of armed robbers stormed into the building demanding money.  In fear of her life, the resident handed over eleven thousand dollars in Belizean currency and eight thousand dollars in U.S. currency to the thieves.  Upon hearing the commotion, fifty-nine-year-old Ofelia Hernandez, exited her room and walked into the living room where she observed someone standing on the veranda outside of the building.  After locking him out, the robber inside the premises shoved Hernandez to the ground while making his escape out onto the street and into New Road.  Earlier today, Senior Superintendent Hilberto Romero provided details of the incident.

“On Saturday, October 26th, 2019 around 6:15 p.m., police responded to an aggravated burglary report at Hyde‘s Lane, at Dario‘s Meat Pies.  Upon their arrival, Nicole Perdomo, forty-three-years-old, reported that whilst counting money at the establishment, on the second floor, two male persons came in who were armed with firearms and proceeded to steal an amount of Belizean currency and U.S. currency in cash.  As a result, they received injuries and thereafter the male persons fled from the area.  Quick police response and investigation led to the recovery of the money and we have several persons detained and we will determine what charges will be levied upon them by the end of today.”

 

Richards, a resident of Freedom Street, has been arrested and charged for the crime of aggravated burglary.
