According San Pedro Police, a gas station attendant at Caribeña Fuels Gas Station, located on the corner of Blake Street and Sea Grape Drive, reported that around 8:40 p.m., whilst on duty and attending at the gas station, a male person wearing a rag on his face approached him, pointed a hand gun at him and demanded money.

The attendant surrendered a black pouch that he was wearing on his neck to the assailant. The pouch contained a total of $658.00 Bze in assorted currency. The attendant, at the time of the incident, was at the fuel station along with four other persons. The assailant then ran north along Sea Grape Drive and made managed to escape.

San Pedro Police responded to the area where an extensive search was conducted but the individual was not found. The matter is still under investigation.

    If crimes like this are not taken care of right away on the Island it's going to make tourist think twice about comming to the Island in fear of it happening to them.

    To the Police:   How about a body search for weapons and drugs of any suspicious male person who seems to be idling or walking aimlessly down trhe streets during working hours.  The community would appreciate such an actrion.

    It's going to be hard to search anyone idly walking down the street during working hours because a lot of ppl have random working hours due to san pedro's attractions. while you have some places with normal 8-5 hours you have waitresses bartenders who make up a lot of the work force in san pedro who'e hours vary from 11-5 or 5-1am or 5am to afternoon, however it goes depending on the business. Now what police can do is rub down those idly drinking on corners and just looking for a tourist to hustle (everyone knows exactly where to find them, on the beach by big daddys start there). But they can't rub down anyone idly walking down the street during working hours. I'd be pissed if i were bored and decided to go for an afternoon stroll and get frisked because i was walking during that time. just says i cant enjoy the island.

    if  you  are  a  local.....the  police   will  do  a  st.  search  any  damn  time  they  feel  like  it.....especially  if  you  appear  to  be  poor...!!....and  if  theres  any  resistance....it's  off  to   jail...on   some  phoney  charge.....where  the   ambience  of   stale  urine  swirls   round in  the  breeze.......24/7....

    a shamefull situation   for   bzean,sanpedranno,tourist,and  the  police  themselves  to  have to  experience,daily...!!
