Extra house Store owner robbed of $100,000

Lloyd Valentine

A Belize City businessman of Extra House Store was robbed on Sunday of over one hundred thousand dollars in cash and today two persons, including a minor, were arraigned before Magistrate Hettie Mae Stewart. Lloyd Valentine was charged along with a sixteen year old for Robbery with a Firearm. Bail was automatically denied since the crime was committed at gunpoint and no plea was taken due to the large sum of money that was stolen. So tonight Valentine is behind bars while the minor is at the Belize Youth Hostel; both are to reappear in court on March second. While only two suspects were charged today, the victim, Vinod Chawla, claims that he was accosted by at least three men. The robbery occurred just as Chawla arrived at home on Sunday afternoon. At total of one hundred and one thousand dollars was stolen from him and police have so far recovered just over two thousand dollars.
