Security Guard Robbed of Firearm in San Ignacio: Concerns Rise Over Targeted Attacks

A security guard was robbed of his weapon in San Ignacio Town last night. 20-year-old, Alumberto Ack, who is employed with Technical Security Systems, told police that the incident happened around seven o’clock at Tim’s Shop on the Bullet Tree Road. Ack said that a man wearing jeans, a long-sleeved green shirt, and a motorcycle helmet, approached him and pulled a gun. The man robbed him of his nine-millimeter pistol with twelve live rounds and then ran off. We note that this is the second report of a security guard being robbed of a firearm this month. The first was on January 13, at the Bowen and Bowen compound in Ladyville. The management of Technical Security Systems says that the incident is concerning because of what appears to be a growing trend of security guards being targeted. The company also said that the Bullet Tree Road is a major area of concern due to a growing number of robberies and other major crimes in the area. Police are investigating.
