Screen_Shot_2017-11-07_at_7.53.22_PMCorozal Police continue to investigate the brazen Monday morning robbery of a Western Union employee which occurred on 2nd Street South in Corozal Town.


The main suspect is an unidentified man wearing a peak cap, t-shit and long jeans pants, who approaches 28 year old Doris Montejo and takes her purse containing over $10,000 in cash, which were funds belonging to the business.

Video footage obtained by CTV-3 News shows the incident second per second, as the robber approaches the vehicle which dropped off Montejo and shows her a weapon around his pants waist. Montejo told the Police that the robber uttered, “don’t shout and hand over the money”.


Authorities are also closely examining the presence of two other men seen at the top of the video scene, walking across the street and standing on the corner.


The men are not seen getting involved in the act, but end up running away in the same direction the robber does.

Today we learnt from reliable sources that the employee who was robbed doesn’t normally carry around funds for the business but the individual who normally does was out of the country. Therefore, the robbers must have been closely monitoring the business for some time.


In addition to the $10,000 in cash, the robbers stole Montejo’s Samsung Galaxy 7 Prime cellular phone valued at $1,000.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation can contact the Corozal Police Station or call the anonymous Crimestoppers toll free line at 0-800-8477.
