Screen_Shot_2016-11-17_at_7.55.23_PMIt has barely been a month since Happy Family Store opened in San Joaquin Village and it has already fallen victim to an armed robbery.


Reports are that around 9:30 this morning, two masked armed men entered the store located at Mile 79 on the Phillip Goldson Highway and held up the Chinese store-owner’s wife who was behind the cashier, the store assistant and a customer inside the store.


The men pointed guns at them and demanded money. The cashier showed no resistance and fearing for her life, she handed over money. Unconfirmed reports are that the men took about $4,000 plus valuable items before running towards the back streets in the community.


Those streets were being canvassed by Police authorities shortly after. While running away, the men removed their masks and threw them on the ground, leaving behind key pieces of evidence forensically. But forensic analysis is near non-existent in Belize therefore authorities are hopeful that someone saw the robbers and could identify them. The most residents were willing to say however is that one of the men was of dark-brown complexion while the other of Hispanic descent.


Residents say the men were seen in the neighbourhood from earlier in the morning. They were seen sitting under in the shade of this mango tree, but they pretended to be waiting for a bus and when people least expected it, they struck.

The store has surveillance camera therefore the Police is reviewing footage of the robbery as part of their investigations. They are looking for two suspects.
