While the Ministry of Health is monitoring the COVID-19 situation, law enforcement authorities are probing last night’s attempted robbery in Benque Viejo Del Carmen Town, Cayo District. According to reports, businessman Amin Quiroz and his employee, Ryan Uck were traveling to San Ignacio when a vehicle approached them and demanded that they pull over. According to Quiroz, a second vehicle appeared in front of him and caused him to stop. When he came to a halt, Quiroz says a man appeared from the nearby bushes and attempt to puncture a tire. Quiroz then pulled out his licensed nine-millimetre firearm and fired a shot in the assailant’s direction. The vehicle that had attempted to stop Quiroz then fled the scene, but not before Quiroz retrieved his .233 Rifle and fired shots at both the assailant and vehicle.
