It was a relatively quiet weekend as there were no shooting incidents recorded over the last few days, but there were a number of property crimes in the west. On Saturday morning, “Love Town” smoothie shop on Savannah Street in San Ignacio Town was targeted by armed robbers.  The thieves forced the owner to the floor before stealing from the cash register an undisclosed amount of money and two cell phones. Quick response from the police has led to the detention of the suspects.
