“We have made arrest in relation to the robberies however no properties have been recovered; we have arrested one Benigno Loria and an Israel Rancharan for conspiracy to commit the crime of robbery. We are still seeking the two main persons who executed the crime itself; remember conspiracy is just basically two or more persons agreeing to commit crime acting together for the common purpose and in this case it would be robbery.”

As we reported on Tuesday, 48 year old Mexican businessman, Ricardo Villasenor was held at knifepoint by two men who robbed him of 1.25 million pesos, which is equivalent to $208 thousand Belizean dollars. The perpetrators were able to pull off the heist and escape before Belize police were called.
