Corozal Police have one person in custody for the late evening robbery of A&R Store in Corozal Town.
The robbery occurred yesterday between the hours of 6:00p.m and 6:30p.m when 2 men entered the establishment, one of them armed with a firearm, and held up the employees and customers.
“Yes, it was two of them, one had a mask and the other used a black sheet and had a shot gun and this happened between six to six thirty and came in and hold us, I was in my office balancing my cashier and when I came out we had some customers in the store and that is when the two persons came in with the shot gun, I was the one who called the police, the criminals send everybody upstairs and they hold my cashier at gun point and they asked for the keys to close the shutters and I only hand them the keys and after a while they said that the police is coming.”
The employees believe that the same person who robbed the store back in the month of August targeted the store again.
“I saw that it was the same guys that hold us on August and I told the police that is the same guy and we have evidence that is the same guy. They only took belonging from some of our customers and my gold chain and my cashier’s money and her cellphone but I don’t know if they took anything else because we have not done any inventory as yet.”
Information reaching CTV3 News is that Corozal Police suspect the robbery was inside job and are looking for two other individuals for questioning.
