Police have two teenagers, one 18 and the other a minor in custody following an armed robbery at a fruit stall on Coney Drive this morning.

According to reports, the two boys visited the stall three times at around 10:00am – once to buy a banana, the second time just passing by and the third time one of them produced a firearm and proceeded to rob the shopkeeper of an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say that an individual inside the shop struggled with the gunman and took away the firearm.

During that struggle six shots were fired. The two robbers, who fled the scene, were captured in the West Landivar area near to the University of Belize. Police have recovered six expended shell casings and a 9mm pistol.
