A well known burglar who had been operating unimpeded in the Hillview and Santa Cruz Area of Santa Elena Town in the Cayo District since last year has finally been nabbed by San Ignacio Police. San Ignacio Police received a report at 1:25 am on Wednesday of this week of a burglary in progress at Falcon Nest in the Hill View Area of Santa Elena Town. A quick response by the Police led them to a second floor of a building where Nolbert Guzman was discovered hiding behind a bathroom wall in a dark jacket and red warm cap. When Nolbert Guzman recognized that it was the Police, he moved towards the police with a pointed object in his hand and in a stabbing motion. But the Police then responded by hitting Nolbert Guzman with a baton on his knee and  arm after which he fell to the ground and was thereupon subdued with handcuffs. A check by the Police with the proprietor of the building revealed that Nolbert Guzman had not been given any permission to enter said building.

At this time Nolbert Guzman continues to be detained by San Ignacio Police pending charges of burglary and aggravated assault. His screw driver and metal piece has also been retrieved and deposited as exhibit.
