By Aaron Humes: Police are investigating a reported robbery of sales money for the Orange Walk branch of Gas Tomza on Monday.
Around 11:30, 29-year-old Roque Cortez was parking a Gas Tomza-owned white Nissan pickup truck on Market Lane in Orange Walk Town, headed for the Belize Bank to deposit weekend sales money of approximately $9,000. But he was approached by two men on a bicycle.
One of the robbers entered the vehicle from the passenger side and demanded money at gunpoint. Cortez handed over the money bag and his black iPhone and fled for his life, leaving behind the vehicle which the robbers jumped into and drove off in.
However, not long after though, the vehicle was recovered in San Jose Palmar Village, Orange Walk. Still, no cash or suspects were found.
Police continue their investigations.
