By BBN Staff: On Saturday afternoon, a lone gunman entered China Store on 7th Avenue, Corozal and held up the cashier.
Security cameras inside the store captured the ordeal, which lasted only 30 seconds.
The armed masked man grabbed money out of the cash register then got on a bike and rode away.
Corozal Police have since arrested and charged a local firefighter attached to the Corozal Freezone fire service for the robbery.
Anthony Alexander Patnett, 28, has since plead guilty to the crime.
Patnett will be sentenced today at the Corozal Magistrate’s court.
