In last night’s newscast, we broke to you a story involving a robbery at the Corozal Free Zone. Reports reaching our newsroom this morning indicate that Orange Walk Police have recovered the vehicle used in this robbery and abandoned in the village of San Jose. The police report indicates that the robbery occurred sometime around 1:30 in the afternoon of the 26th of September by Kunal Store.
Thirty-six year old Devender Tewani reported to police that while at the Free Zone, he received a call from one Doris Noble in which she asked to change some Belize dollars into Pesos. Tewani proceeded to meet with Noble who was parked in her vehicle by Nittin Sai Imports and upon arrival, he entered Noble’s vehicle which is a four door Jeep Patriot, to the right front passenger seat.
While changing the money, Tewani noticed a tall, slim male person dressed in a yellow t-shirt, black sunglasses, with a black handkerchief covering his face.
The male individual grabbed Tewani and placed a short black firearm to the left side of his head and demanded for the money.
Tewani immediately handed over his wallet and Doris Noble handed over her purse containing $2,000 Belize dollars. At that moment, two other male persons demanded that Tewani hand over the keys for his vehicle, which is a Black Navarra car. The two men ransacked the vehicle and took a bag containing $100,000 Pesos valuing $16,666.66 Belize dollars and $12,000.00 in Belize currency. The total amount of cash in the bag totaled over $28,500.00 which the three men took. Tewani stated that the male assailant with the gun to his head, tied him by the neck to the seat and bound his hands, then made good their escape in a burgundy Mercury SUV with a for sale sign on the rear windshield.
Tewani and Noble immediately notified the police of the incident in which they quickly acted on the report. The SUV was found yesterday afternoon by Orange Walk Police in the village of San Jose.
In what turns out to be a twist to the story, Corozal Police have detained Devender Tewani and Doris Noble and their investigations revealed that both individuals are the ones responsible for orchestrating the robbery. Police continue their investigation into this incident.
