Taxi driver and Aaron’s Store robbed

You’ve probably seen him directing traffic at the Cinderella Plaza or you may have heard him on the morning talk show circuit.  Well, last Friday night Roy Craig, popularly known as “Bullet”, became a victim of the crime epidemic.  Craig told News Five today that during the horrible experience he thought he would have been murdered.  The whole incident, he said, was staged by a female who hired his services at around eleven-thirty that night while he was parked at the Cinderella Plaza Taxi Stand. When he started his car to transport his fare, two men entered the taxi.  Bullet recollected the frightening episode this afternoon.

“I was waiting to get another job or two jobs because in the night now that we have this club here, this Tipsy Corner, it’s active. And a girl came to me and a dark skin girl dehn call the girl “Indian”. So she came to me with her heel broken, her high heel that she not used to was broken.  So I sit there I said I was not gonna take any street job She asked me how much it was going to be to go to Faber’s Road Extension.  I tell her it’s fifteen dollars because dah three miles.  At that time I wanted to discourage her but because her high heel was broken I say it’s a need for me to help her cause I’m doing transport.  When she get in there was two other person following her and I did not see, two males.  At this time I wasn’t really noticing.  I didn’t ketch it, right.  So after she come and get in here the two other guys get in.

When I get up the road there across from the road from going to Faber’s Road Extension off the Western Highway they tell me to turn in on the feeder road.  I turn off and I stop, I she I noh really want goh in there.  If you she yoh wah come dah this road, let’s end this trip right here.  One of the guys grab me around my neck and give me a big fist right here.  I still feel it.  One of the other one do the gun like this “blop blop” and ih shoot through the window.   They asked me for my money.  I only had a hundred and twenty odd dollars.  I know with the change it’s a little more.  So I tell ah mein you noh have to hit me, I noh do you nothing.  I’m waiting on a taxi, I’m taking you – the girl said “shut up! We noh want hear anymore or else we gonna shoot you.”  When I close the vehicle off the one that was in the back there, a tall brown skin one, come around.  He’s going to drive the vehicle.  He she we gwein dah town and the girl she well let’s put him outta here.  I relieved when they said this.  They pulled in the middle of the road and I happen to get out.”

“Bullet” says when he got out of the vehicle one of his friends was in another vehicle traveling behind them and took him to the Police Station.  While filing his report he said police notified him that his vehicle was discovered abandoned about an hour later near the Bliss Institute.  The thieves only took personal effects and the keys from inside the vehicle.

Police are hot on the trail of a suspect who reportedly went to Orange Walk to commit an armed robbery single-handedly on Monday night.  The incident happened at Aaron’s Store on the Belize Corozal Road.  The proprietor, thirty-one year old Jiazhen Wu, said she was about to close the business for the night at around nine when a man wearing a mask and wielding a gun held her up and stole eight hundred dollars.  Police say they know who they are looking for and are closing in on the person.
