Since then, police have arrested a person in connection to the robbery, but charges are yet to be made.

According to the reports, the unidentified male held up the front desk office of the resort armed with what is suspected to be a black handgun. Present at the time of the robbery were two receptionists. The man pointed the gun towards the head of one of the receptionist and demanded to be given all the cash. Fearing for their lives, the receptionists complied and handed over a cash box containing $785BZ and several envelopes containing cash amounting to $4,000BZ. The robber also took the receptionists’ iPhones, both estimated at a value of $1,500BZ. The culprit then exited the office and made his escape in the direction of Seagrape Drive.

Police arrived to the scene shortly after the incident. Using Global Positioning System (GPS), police officers managed to track the stolen phones. As a result, 26-year-old Agar Miguel Chunchon was apprehended. Chunchon was found in the possession of the two phones, but was not identified as the robber.
