Robbery Leaves Cop Dead in Bolivia

LA PAZ – A police officer was killed and two civilians were hurt when a group of heavily armed men robbed an office used to count toll receipts on a highway in Bolivia early Monday, the press reported.

The robbers, who numbered between four and six, took 350,000 bolivianos (nearly $50,000) from the office on the highway that links La Paz and nearby El Alto.

The robbers arrived in two vehicles and attacked the police officers guarding the facility, eyewitnesses and police said.

One officer was shot in the chest and died while being transported to a hospital, while two civilians were beaten as the robbers fled.

The robbers managed to get away, the FELCC law enforcement agency’s commander in El Alto, Col. Israel Vega, said.

This is the second robbery of this type in the past four days in La Paz.

Six people robbed an exchange house last Thursday in La Paz, stealing a large amount of cash and killing the owner.

The same gang may have carried out both robberies, given the similarities in the crimes, police said. EFE
