Police target motorcycles after a string of robberies in West

Posted: Wednesday, October 11, 2023. 1:18 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Following separate robberies in the Twin Towns this past weekend, police announced they are conducting several operations in Cayo to combat a robbery spree that began in September.

Police report that early on Saturday morning, a security guard for Big-H Tropical Juices Factory reported that he was on the job when three armed men held him up, tied him up, and broke into the building. At least one fled the area and the guard heard the sounds of a motorcycle. Later checks of the building revealed an amount of cash stolen.

As we previously reported, there was a robbery at Liang Store in Santa Elena Town, also allegedly conducted by men on motorcycles.

In response, ACP Hilberto Romero, OC, Eastern Division reported, “Yes, those crimes are of concern to us, over the weekend we had several operations targeting motorcycles and so it is something we are looking at. Many of these crimes are being committed using motorcycles so we’ll be stepping up our operations and conducting more checkpoints and stopping and searching these persons who are found on motorcycles.” He added that the culprits are suspected to be Belizeans, not foreigners.

Investigations into the four reported robberies in the district continue.
