Belize_Police_Dept-BPDpolice_logoOrange Walk police continue to look for one more person believed to be involved in the home invasion that occurred on the night of Friday last into Saturday morning. Police have charged Ronald Bruhier, a twenty one year old of San Jose Nuevo Palmar Village and two minors, both seventeen years old of a Savannah Street address. They have all been charged for aggravated burglary, wounding, and taking conveyance without authority. Police are still looking for one person in connection to the incident.


The invasion occurred sometime around ten in the night at the residence of Maria Elisa Artiga. Artiga and her daughter were arriving home and opening the gate to their yard when four armed masked men approached them from behind and forced them into their house. They were taken into one of the rooms at the house which was ransacked. Artiga at one point became involved in a struggle with her assailant, and was hit to the right side of her lip.


The suspects attempted to leave the scene in the family’s grey 1999 Neon Car after taking five hundred dollars, an assortment of jewellery, cell phones and wrist watches but did not get far as the vehicle got stuck in a deep pot hole along the road.


The men then proceeded to burglarize Artiga’s retail store, Elisa’s Mini Shop located on Boundary Road from where they took three hundred dollars. Quick police action resulted in the arrest of the three men currently in police custody and the recovery of almost all stolen items. Police are still looking for a fourth person believed to be involved in the heist.
