Screen_Shot_2015-05-11_at_8.27.05_PMPolice sirens were heard buzzing about on the Belize Corozal Road shortly after three today. That is because authorities were in pursuit of robbers who had just targeted Luda’s Store. Officer Commanding the Orange Walk Formation, Superintendent Dennis Arnold, said that coincidentally police were in the area at the time and acted quickly to subdue the men.

SUPT. DENNIS ARNOLD – Officer in Charge, OW Police

“Police were called out to Ludas Fast Food where they had a robbery but coincidentally when the two suspects were leaving from the establishment which is at the corner of Belize Corozal Road and Guadalupe Street the police officers were passing at the same time and saw the two suspects masked and managed to capture one of them and he was brought to the police station. Fortunately he was the one with the bag of money as he had $827.35 in that bag which was robbed from the Chinese so he is in custody. We have just captured the second suspect so both are in our custody. The robbery was carried out with what appears to be a firearm which we still have not found.”

Those two persons, both 18 year olds, will be charged and arraigned tomorrow. Police are reviewing surveillance footage which captured the entire ordeal from the owners of the establishment, to determine the identity of the robber on the run.
