Taxi driver kidnapped and robbed by his fares

Also from the police blotter, a Belize City taxi driver had a close call on Thursday. Two men requested Elmer Martinez to take them to Neal’s Pen Road from his station on Albert Street.  According to Martinez, one of the men asked to stop near an alley where he came face to face with two other masked and armed men, who took his cell phone and wallet containing personal documents. According to Martinez, he was then placed in the trunk of his car and driven to an unknown location.  He did manage to get out of the vehicle and soon found out that he was still in the Neal’s Pen Road Area.

    More madness in the frightening streets of Belize against poor, hard-working people trying to make ends meet. My gawd, how much money can you rob from a taxi driver??????? These petty young punks haven’t met the right potential victim yet who is gonna pump them full of lead. I am praying for these bastard to victimize any of my family members so I could take vigilante justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Arm yourselves Belizeans.

    I have said time & time again, there is a fate far worse than death, make these little angels disappear. Their gang family & partners in crime will not have the opportunity to do their gang ritual over the dead bodies & we will no longer have to deal with them. Get rid of enough of them, the others will take notice. Cruel & unusual punishment?…. Not really. Rabid animals have no place in any society & I would like to see the bustling city we once knew returned to some semblance of civility.

    Taxi drivers: if they look like criminals and want to go in high crime areas, then more than likely they are criminals, just drive the hell off.
