Police have charged two people as they continue to investigate the aggravated burglary of Elodio Aragon Senior’s home and his subsequent kidnapping. While police have not arrested the perpetrators, late Thursday afternoon police reported that 26-year-old Renold Hernandez of San Jose Palmar Village in the Orange Walk District and 19-year-old Rachel Lawrence of Orange Walk Town were jointly charged for Handling Stolen Goods. Aragon Sr. was taken from his Orange Walk Town residence and the thieves blindfolded him and abandoned him over eight miles outside Orange Walk Town along the Posito Road. Today, the police department provided an update into the case but would not say if they would be arraigned for Aragon’s kidnapping.
Aragon was not harmed.
