Police Impound Van and Look for Heritage Bank ATM Thieves

On Friday, the managers and employees of Heritage Bank woke up to discover that thieves had targeted two of their ATM’s – one in Belize City and another at a location on the Bullet Tree Road in San Ignacio.  While the thieves were unsuccessful at removing the machine or taking any of the money from that location in Cayo, those in Belize City were able to make off with the entire machine and all the money, believed to be roughly a hundred thousand dollars in cash. Camera footage showed how they pulled off the burglary, using a vehicle and a chain fastened to the machine.  Today, A.C.P Romero said the police have the van the thieves used and they are now looking for the culprits.

“On Friday, the first day of December, 2023, around 5:30 a.m., police responded to a report of a burglary at the Puma Gas Station on Faber’s Road.  Upon the arrival, the manager reported that the building had been burglarized and stolen from there was one ATM machine. The manager reported that he had secured the building the previous day around 9:30 p.m., and then when he came to open the place, he discovered that the ATM machine had been stolen. Entry was gained by prying open a glass door from the building. Video footage was reviewed, which showed that a van came with chains, and they pulled the machine, which then was loaded into the van, and the person made good their escape. An investigation has been carried out, and the van has since been recovered and we are seeking several persons in regards to this burglary.”
