“Based upon information received just before 12 p.m. of an armed robbery, Love News visited Lisa’s Store located in the Maya Mopan area of Belmopan. According to Wei Ji*, the owner of the establishment, some time around 11:45 a.m. she was inside the store when a male person entered and walked towards the cooler while another stood at the door. About a minute after the male person inside suddenly turned around with a mask over his face armed with a firearm, jumped over the counter and placed a gun to the side of her head and demanded money. Fearing for her life she handed over almost $500 in different denominations. The thieves made good their escape on a motorcycle.”
