“Benguche Store located here in the Benguche area of Dangriga was robbed once again last night at about 7:45. Desmond Cansio, a Special Constable, who was on duty at the store when the incident happened told Love News that two male persons held him up at gun point.”

“Well, they came through the hole near the burial ground; they parked the vehicle in the corner as if they were coming to buy at the shop and when they reached closer that is when it happened.  Two people, a big one and a shorter person. The big one was in white and black and the shorter one was in red, holding a knife. So he happened to show off the gun and pointed it at me and told me to go inside and not to run.  (I was) outside the store; I was looking out. They got the money from the cashier and they got the money from the Boledo girl as well. They turned back and took the money out of my pocket and took my two phones as well.”

“How much money did they take from you?”

DESMOND CANSIO

“Fifty dollars.  After that they came outside again and they held the gun inside for no one to move and that is how they got the money from the Boledo girl.”

HARRY ARZU

“This particular store has been robbed several times before and at this time we are not sure how much money was stolen but we were told that after the robbery the perpetrators made good their escape.”
