By BBN Staff:Five men attempted to rob the Northern Fishermen Cooperatives in Belize City after 2:00 p.m. today but quick police response foiled the attempt and officers took the men along with a taxi driver into custody.
It was reported earlier that the men had stormed Carla’s Cakes, which is also on North Front Street in Belize City, however, police have confirmed otherwise. Police also say one 9 millimeter firearm was recovered from the taxi vehicle, which was allegedly used by the five would-be robbers.
