“Kapel Chelanie, age twenty-five years, a warehouse supervisor of 36 East Canal, Belize City, reported that whilst he was supervising the unloading of a container on Amara Avenue, he was approached by two male persons who demanded his belongings and he handed over a blue in color Samsung A-12 cell phone valued at seven hundred dollars.  Shots were fired by the accused individuals where they ran away from the scene.  Quick response from the Precinct One support team led to the detention of these individuals fitting the description given.  They were detained on Euphrates Avenue, Belize City, and they were found in possession of the item.  The property was recovered and police have since detained Troy Augustus of a West Street Address and Orlin Garcia of Iguana Street address in Belize City.  Both persons have been arrested and charged for robbery, jointly, based on the information or the report that was given.”
