This was taken from a poster on another board.
There was an armed robbery at Bugaloe in the morning of Sunday to Monday (May 17/18). Two masked and armed teens entered the place at closing hour and pointed a gun at the head of the security guard, they tied him up and stole his belongings. They have ordered employees to hand over all the deposits of the business and so they did. The robbers apparently knew exactly where the deposits were, which enforces the idea of some inside job. They have robbed US$ 50,000.00 from that place.
The robbery was reported to police two minutes after 12:00am on Monday. When the robbers left, they assaulted two tourists, one staying at the Raddison hotel and the other at the Westin hotel. They stole their belongings as well.
Police have mobolized immediately to the scene together with the special armed assault team to investigate the case. No arrest are made yet but a thorough investigation is ongoing. Nobody was hurt.
Witnesses describe the two suspects as very young (probably teenagers) or young adults early twenties, both are caucasians, and spoke fluently Spanish.
The Aruban community is shocked and outraged. It was the talk of the day yesterday. And hopefully a wake up call for more security patrol in that area. There is call on the island for severe punishment (several years in prison), as islanders view this as an attack on the island's tourism industry
