Screen_shot_2011-07-13_at_8.34.22_PMIn the past few weeks the Orange Walk Police have been receiving repeated reports of popular entertainment spots in town falling victim to robbers. The latest incident occurred last night when three men entered “Las Margaritas” in the Pasadita area and robbed the business manager of $1,500 and left the waitresses in the bar in shock.

Alma Alcoser – Manager - Las Margaritas

“Estábamos jugando billar y las muchachas estaban viendo televisión cuando una de ellas mira que la que estaba cerca del baño se encero en el baño. Luego los ladrones vinieron con la pistola y fueron a querer botar la puerta y le dijeron que abra si no le van a disparar. Ella no quiso abrir luego ellos amenazaron se metieron adentro y agarraron lo que pudieron y salieron. A una muchacha que estaba por la rocola le apuntaron con la pistola y las demás muchachas casi lloraban. Yo les dije que se leven lo que sea pero que me entregaran mis papeles porque se levaban mis papeles y las laves de mi vehículo. Eran tres de ellos pero dejaron uno afuera. En un bolso negro empacaron lo que querían y se fueron en bicicleta en rumbos diferentes. Se levaron una cadena, 2 pares de aretes, perfume, mi lave, dinero mío personal y del negocio. En total se levaron como $1,500.”

Although the women are still recovering from the experience, business wasn’t affected today.

The incident at “Las Margaritas” is not an isolated one. This afternoon we visited two other establishments which shared a similar story. Managers of “L&S Cool Spot” and “La Nueva Nostalgia” told us that they have also been robbed in the last two weeks. Their accounts of the incident, description of the robbers and the shotgun and knife used in the assault matched the robbery last night.

Police are investigating the matter but no arrests have been made in any of the robberies.
