grenade.jpg - 92.14 KbOn January 3rd, the Gang Suppression Unit removed an American Type M26-A1 hand grenade from the Old Fabers Road Area in Belize City. The grenade was taken by BDF personnel for it to be destroyed. Eleven days later BDF commander David Jones was called by police to an empty lot on the Lake Independence Boulevard where police had discovered yet another grenade of similar type as the one found earlier.

The second grenade was found in a container and was likely left in the area for police to find. The grenades are not the type used by Belize’s military and speculation is that they are being imported into the country via our porous borders. As with the first grenade, the second one found was taken into BDF’s custody for later destruction.
