Police are on a manhunt for three men who are wanted for robberies in the northern districts: Robert Hill, 37, and Austin Sutherland, 23 – both of whom are residents of Corozal; and Nimrod Tillett, 28, of Orange Walk.
Police said that Robert Hill is wanted for the armed robbery of Chan Li Game Room, which occurred on Wednesday, June 5. Police said that he went into the game room, pointed a gun at the owner, and stole all the money that was in the establishment’s cash drawer — over $800.
Hill also stole a bicycle from a customer who was in the game shop at the time, and escaped on it. He has since been on the run.
A few days earlier, at about 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 1, police say, Austin Sutherland went into the room of the owner of Sea Breeze Hotel, in Corozal, and stole over $75 in cash and over $600 worth of items. He is also on the run.
Nimrod Tillett, on the other hand, escaped from police custody at the Orange Walk Hospital while waiting to receive medical treatment.
Tillett was to be taken to the Orange Walk Magistrate’s Court on charges of robbery and attempted murder. He began to complain of pain, however, and police then took him and another prisoner to the Orange Walk Hospital to be seen by a doctor.
While the doctor was attending to the other prisoner, Tillett ran out of the hospital and escaped.
Anyone knowing the whereabouts of Nimrod Tillett, Austin Sutherland, and Robert Hill is asked to contact the nearest police station.
