Belizean arrested for robbery in Mexico

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Quintana Roo, Mexico–Belizean Roberto Heredia Bradley, 37, has been detained by Mexican police in the city of Playa Del Carmen in the state of Quintana Roo, pending charges of robbery, threat of death, and handling stolen goods and carrying an illegal weapon in Mexico.

Allegations against Bradley are that he held up and robbed a woman with a knife in the Zazil-Ha Zone of Playa Del Carmen and escaped with her purse, containing her cellphone and money. Police, who were on patrol in the area, quickly captured the man, and the items reported as stolen by the woman were found in his possession.

The incident occurred on Thursday. According to Mexican online newspaper, Diario Respuesta, the Mexican woman was walking in the Zazil-Ha zone in Playa Del Carmen when a man held a knife to her throat, threatening that if she screamed, he would kill her.

The woman, fearing for her life, handed over her bag containing her money and cellphone to the robber, who took the bag and ran away.

The woman quickly raised the alarm, however, and police who were on patrol in the area were alerted and began a search for the robber, and they found him in the area of the robbery with the victim’s purse.

He was arrested and taken to the police station, where he was charged with the offences.
