By BBN Staff: According to reports, yesterday, around 12:27 pm, two gas attendants at PUMA gas station in Belize City were robbed.
The attendants told police that two men, one armed with a gun, demanded money from one of them.
Fearing for their lives, they handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and cheques to the robbers.
Police immediately responded to the report and they intercepted a grey Dodge Caliber car at the junction of Lake Independence Boulevard and the George Price Highway.
