Armed robbery suspects caught in O.W.

Two Belize City men thought they could make some easy cash up north but have found out that crime has its disadvantages. Police report that Monday evening twenty three year old money changer Marvin Flores was heading back from the border to Orange Walk, but when he reached the junction of Libertad Village he saw a car parked across the road and stopped. At that point two armed masked men got out of the vehicle, one pointing a gun to Flores’ head while the other demanded money. They got two thousand, four hundred Belize dollars, two thousand pesos and three hundred in U.S. currency and immediately fled… But they didn’t get far. Alerted by the victim, Orange Walk police found the two suspects trying to arrange for a taxi to the city at the One Stop Shell Station. The two men, who have been handed over to Corozal police, are twenty six year old Clifford Carballo of Benbow Street and nineteen year old Patrick Kerr of Flamboyant Street.
