As usual, it’s not easy to get many “facts” about these West End silver-pistol robberies. But a concerned citizen e-mailed me a shot taken of a suspect’s ID card which was held at the tourist police station in West End.
“Here’s the photo. I took this picture at the west end tourist police station. They had this guy’s picture ID and presented it to me asking if he was the robber. They probably still have it. I don’t know if they have followed up and tried to find or arrest him though, maybe you can find out. I spoke with Officer Perez at the station but most of the guys there heard from me about the robbery at the roatan bed and breakfast near brick oven pizza. Sometimes I wasn’t sure if they were always telling me the truth. I suspect not, because once they told me they had 3 suspects and treated them badly but they gave no information. Another officer said it was two suspects. I think they were just blowing smoke. Also, the owner of the B&B said about a week after we left, the police had two thieves in cuffs so I don’t know what that was all about.
