On Thursday of last week five police officers from the Belmopan Police Formation were rewarded for their valiant efforts in recovering properties from the Ministry of Agriculture. These police officers, moving with great speed and precision, were able to recover a stolen 2016 Hilux and 4000 Euros, which also led to the arrest of the person who allegedly committed the crime.

On hand to celebrate with the police were the Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Agriculture Mr. Jose Alpuche (responsible for Pesticide Control Board from which items were stolen) and the Commissioner of Police Mr. Allen Whylie. The Police Department would like to thank Mr. John and Jonathan D’Silva of Bullfrog Inn for providing lunch for this occasion.

“It is as a direct result of bravery, commitment and choice decisions that caused this to happen,” writes Howell Gillett, Officer in Charge of the Belmopan Police Formation.

“When officers do wrong we are quick to punish them, likewise when they do well we must celebrate them.”

It was also last Thursday that 23 year old Kareem Harvey, living at Poison Wood Street in Belmopan, was charged with the Aggravated Burglary of an abode in Cayo.  The registrar officer of the Pesticide Control Board in Central Farm in Cayo had reported that when she arrived home on Saturday an intruder had placed an object to her back and covered her face with a plastic bag. The house invader then robbed her as well of four thousand Euros, escaping in the 2016 government issued Toyota Hilux.
