    Hmmm…so crime has become so rampant that its reaching closer to home! Cayo is MY hometown but I guess these robbers have no respect for wherever or whoever they rob!

    But could Mr. Valdez bit off more than he could chew this time? We all know his dealings and his involvement in dirty business! Why on earth would u have $6000+ cash on you? Pretty stupid if u ask me! For the size of store he has, there is absolutely NO WAY that money was proceeds from the days work. So if you were/are involved with organized crime or drug dealings then you should know that these types of things comes with the territory!

    (MR PULCHICHE )got the pinch this time, but hopefully they arrest the guys who made this robbery in our town. it’s nothing nice to be robb at gun point but so much money in cash from a small store come on, i kind of agree with PRINCE MICHAELS. dirty little earnings have their consequences ” it come easy but goes away easy also”

    May some people should have trust in the banks and start using the banks instead of having all that amount of money on them. This happen because of him being a show off with all those gold chain around his neck too.
