By Aaron Humes: Intelligence and timely intervention by Ladyville Police stopped plans for a major robbery expected to have taken place in the next two days in the village.
The operation involved a hot pursuit by the Rural Rapid Response team of a dark Hyundai Santa Fe vehicle with no license plates. The Highway Patrol engaged the suspicious vehicle at about 10:05 last night while it was entering the Ladyville area through the Burrel Boom Junction.
Senior Superintendent Edward Broaster, officer commanding Eastern Division Rural explained that the group threw a bag out of the pickup and got away before police could apprehend them.
Police could not say which business the suspects intended to rob and neither could they detain anyone but they say they know exactly who the players are and they hail from one of the Belize City gangs.
