Salesman robbed on Philip Goldson Highway

CrimeSalesman robbed on Philip Goldson Highway

At about 3:30 Friday evening, a salesman and his assistant were held up and robbed at gunpoint while travelling from Belize City to Orange Walk on the Philip Goldson Highway in Biscayne, and the three bandits got away with $2,100.

Fabian Quinones, of Orange Walk Town, told police that he and his driver, Mason Quiroz, a truck driver, also of Orange Walk Town, were traveling from Belize City to Orange Walk on the Philip Goldson Highway, in a white freightliner truck when a black four-door Toyota pickup with tinted glass overtook them, slowed down in front of them and stopped, causing them to stop. Then, three men, two of whom were armed with 9mm pistols, jumped out of the vehicle.

The gunmen pointed their guns at Quinones and Quiroz and ordered them out of the truck, said Quinones. The bandits then stole $2,100 and their cellphones, and then drove away.

Quinones immediately alerted the police, who began an investigation, but so far the robbers have not been found.
