Ryan Alvarez, also known as “Lippo”, is behind bars after he was accused of threatening his uncle with a handgun. 

49-year-old Dwight Alvarez told police that he and his nephew, Ryan’s brother, were engaged in an argument when Ryan intervened and told his uncle that he won’t let anyone take advantage of his brother. According to Dwight, Ryan then went behind the yard of their family house, located on Supaul Street, and came back with a 9 mm pistol. Dwight said Ryan pointed the gun at him and, fearing for his life, he walked away and went to report the matter to police. Police arrested and charged Ryan Alvarez with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

On Friday, February 28, Alvarez appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith where he pleaded not guilty to the charge. Due to the nature of the offense, Alvarez was denied bail and remanded to the Belize Central Prison until his next court appearance on April 28th.

Ryan Alvarez is no stranger to the court. He has several cases pending before the court for violent offenses.
