Police also found the phone chip at the home of one of the accused. A search of Wilworth Anderson’s home in Cotton Tree Village led to the discovery of a Sig Sauer 9mm pistol and seven live rounds of 9mm Ruger brand rounds along with one 9mm Aguila brand round. The weapons were seen being thrown outside the window as police approached. Police also found 1.9 grams of cannabis inside Anderson’s home during the search and all four accused were found inside as well.
In court, they were unrepresented but told the magistrate that Dickie Bradley is their attorney. They said he had no idea they were being charged in Belize City as they were schedule to go to court in Belmopan. Magistrate Flowers told the four accused that she is only facilitating the arraignment today, but that on their next adjournment set for September 28 they will appear in the Belmopan Magistrate Court.
