Local Dive Shop Burglarized

Sunday, February 22nd, 2015

BDA-robbed-6This morning, February 22nd, the owners of Belize Diving Adventures discovered that their dive shop was burglarized sometime last night. The dive shop, which moved to its new location just a couple months ago, is located on a pier just south of San Pedro Town. Sometime between 6PM on Saturday February 21st and Sunday morning at 7AM a locked door, which faces the east and is not visible from the beach was pried open. An initial inventory shows that four spear guns, 18 dive masks, five sets of fins, two bang sticks and a set of boat keys were stolen, adding up to an estimated $8000 loss.
Many other valuable items were not taken, indicating that either the thief(s) were in search of specific items or had limited space to carry off the equipment. This morning one fin from the dive shop was found on the beach just south of the dive shop. It is speculated that the culprits may have been in a kayak that was overloaded with the goods.
Other dive shops in the area are asked to be on the lookout for the stolen equipment, and the fins are marked with BDA. Anyone with information regarding the break in are asked to contact the San Pedro Police Department at 206-2022.
