Three arrested for armed robbery
There is some good news coming out of the San Pedro Police Department as they have made an arrest in connection with the armed robbery of Dilia Terraza. The robbery occurred on July 4th, 2008 and left the 46-year-old business owner injured from a gunshot wound. After intense investigations, officers have arrested and charged three men in connection with the incident and these have been remanded to Hattievielle where they await their trial. The men have had previous run-ins with police and they are Eric Swan, 23-year-old fisherman, Frank Edwards, 20-year-old laborer both of San Mateo Area and Gabriel Salazar, 21-year-old fisherman of San Juan Area. They have all been jointly arrested and charged for the crimes of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.
The story unfolded on Friday, July 4th at approximately 10:45 p.m. as Dilia Teraza, 46, owner of Topaz Jewelry in Pescador Drive was riding home alone on her scooter while her husband and an eight year old child traveled ahead of her on the couple’s golf
          Eric Swan, 23
cart. Upon reaching closer to home a taxi cab intercepted Teraza and her husband. Getting closer to her stop on the corner of Angel Coral and Pelican Street, next to Sun Up Restaurant, the cab had to reverse and this made her slow down.
     
Once Teraza slowed down, two men jumped on her and demanded the knapsack that she was carrying. A struggle ensued between Teraza and the culprits who were described as being of brown skinned descent. During the struggle a single shot was fired which caught Teraza under her
         Gabriel Salazar, 21
arm on the left chest area. The culprits ran off with her knapsack that contained approximately $70,000 worth of jewelry, cash and her licensed firearm and made their way towards the lagoon where it is alleged that a getaway boat was waiting for them and made good their escape.        All three were remanded to prison until August 27th, 2008 while the investigation continues. Police believe that additional suspects are being sought at this time.   From San Pedro Sun

Petrocaribe creates food fund to tackle world crises
In an effort to guarantee regional food security, representatives of the 18 Petrocaribe member countries created on Wednesday a food fund with an initial balance of 450 million dollars, reported Prensa Latina.
During a meeting of agriculture ministers and other top authorities from the Petrocaribe member nations held in Honduras June 30, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez' initiative to create a fund to reactivate the agricultural sector in Latin America was materialized.
The Petrocaribe Food Fund, which is part of the Bolivarian Alternative of the Americas, will be fueled by Venezuelan oil exports at a rate of five cents for each barrel of crude oil sold on discount to Petrocaribe members at a price over 100 dollars.
In addition, the participants in the agriculture summit created a Council of Ministers of Agriculture that will have its headquarters in Venezuela. The council will be in charge of defining procedures, statutes and regulations relevant to the sector.
During the meeting, Hondura's President, Manuel Zelaya, announced the incorporation of his country to the Bolivarian Alternative of the Americas.
The next Petrocaribe meeting will be held in Cuba, as agreed by participants in the summit, according to AP.
Attending the gathering were delegations from Petrocaribe member nations Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti­, Honduras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, St Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Surinam and Venezuela. Attending as observers were representatives from Bolivia, Costa Rica and Ecuador. Read More
