Robbery suspect nabbed in San Pedro

Police in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, believe they’ve finally caught up with a robber who has held up at least two of the island’s drinking establishments during the past couple of weeks. Lius Lima Carrera, a twenty-one year old Guatemalan resident of San Pedro, has been charged with two counts of robbery and aggravated assault. Police allege that on July twelfth he pulled a gun on the bartender at Mata Rocks Resort, taking a gold chain and one hundred and fifteen dollars in cash. On the night of July twenty second he allegedly struck again, this time two and a half miles north of town at Captain Morgan’s. There he went in the bar and ordered a beer, and instead of pulling out his wallet to pay, he produced a gun. He left with two hundred dollars cash. When police caught up with Lima they recovered the gold chain and some of the cash, as well as a toy gun.
