This morning, information was given to us that, there was a bank robbery at the National Bank of Belize in Belmopan. Reports were given after that it was only a false alarm and that there was no robbery to report.  The National Bank of Belize later sent a press release saying that the security system was inadvertently triggered, leading to its activation, however Belmopan Police responded immediately. The General Manager of the Bank, Alvaro Alamina said on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Bank, he wanted to express sincere gratitude to the Police for their prompt intervention and to the members of the public for their immediate expressions of concern.
