“He reported to police that sometime around 7 a.m., he was alerted to his dogs barking. He was alone at home, but eventually opened his back door and went out to investigate what the dogs were barking at. During that same time, he was approached by a male person who managed to struggle with him and put him on the ground where that person was joined by four other individuals. They then escorted him inside his home where he was bound and left in some room inside his home whilst his home was ransacked. He later heard the sound of vehicles driving off and thereafter shouted for his neighbour who came across to assist him and called the police. That is when he observed that his two vehicles, a blue Toyota Hilux and a blue Toyota Prado, were stolen. Police are investigating this matter. We have been able to follow some information that later on in the morning of yesterday, those vehicles may have been seen going into Guatemala through Arenal.”
