Three men and two minors of Belize City were arrested in western Belize last night after they allegedly held up an 18-year-old student of Santa Elena Town as she walked home on Salazar Street.  The student told police that it was around nine o’clock last night when two men approached her and forcibly took away her cellular phone and school bag valued at about four hundred dollars.  Quick response from the authorities in San Ignacio Town led to the interception of a gold colored vehicle with its occupants being 27-year-old, Beryl Card of Belama area; 21-year-old, Shane Nunez of Neal’s Pen Road; 28-year-old, Dion Garcia of Barrack Road and the two minors both of a Pickstock Street address.  A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of the stolen items as well as a knife.  Investigations are ongoing.
