On Tuesday, February 14th, Linda Del Valle visited the San Pedro Police Station and reported that on Monday, February 13th, her business, Manelly’s Ice Cream, was burglarized. In her report, her employee stayed at the business and at 10:18PM, sent sales report to complainant via WhatsApp. Complainant clarified that at the end of every business day, her workers usually leave $50 in change of various denominations in the cash register. When Del Valle arrived back to Manelly’s at 7:30AM the following day, she noticed that the cash register was missing. She then checked inside for the sales of the day and noticed it was missing as well. In total, $680 was missing, plus two buckets of ice cream. She checked the back door, and found the damaged cash register on the ground, and the two buckets of ice cream which had been opened. She continued looking around and checked the windows and any possible place where they could have entry into the establishment could have been gained, and upon checking a hole, she noticed that a board was used to cover the air conditioner unit. She then called the police for assistance and requested court action into the matter. The police reviewed camera footage from Mayan Princess and from a nearby hotel and were able to identify the culprit. The minor was arrested and charged for the crime of burglary.
*On Sunday, February 12th, Juan Canek visited the San Pedro Police Station and reported that about 3PM on the same day, he was at home when he saw a male person that he knew over the past two years behaving disorderly at his mother shop. He proceeded to the shop and asked the individual to leave, to which he complied. However, that same individual was collecting bottles, and he began throwing the bottles towards the shop. Canek hurried over to try and stop him, when he felt something hit him in the back of his head, and he began bleeding. Shortly after, the police arrived at that location, and issued him a medico legal form, certifying his injuries as wounding. Based on information received, police formally arrested and charged Amin Harris for the crime of wounding.
