By BBN Staff: Police have arrested and charged one man for the murder of Cayo shop owner, Abel Bardales, which occurred in late January.
Police say that on Wednesday, cops charged Ontario Village resident Leroy Anthony Richards, 34, with a single count of murder.
On the afternoon of January 29, Bardales was at his store receiving a delivery of juice, when someone came to rob the delivery men.
Bardales struggled with the armed assailant and was shot in the process. After firing the shot, the robber tried to escape but Bardales chased him, that’s when the robber fired the shot that killed Bardales.
Following the incident the Belize Police Department pleaded with the public to cooperate during a robbery if you lack the means to defend yourself, as loss of property is better than loss of life.
