A Police Constable Franklin Ramirez along with 2 others- Trevor Brown and Elorey Graham were all granted Supreme Court bail when they appeared in the Belize City Supreme Court on August 11, 2017 before Justice Herbert Lord.

The trio was charged in the Belmopan Supreme Court on firearm charges. Their arrest was made following a Mobile Interdiction Team (MIT) bust on Monday, August 7, 2017 when they stopped a white Ford Explorer travelling from San Ignacio to Belmopan.

The vehicle was being driven by PC Ramirez. In his company were Brown and Graham along with a 17-year-old minor. A search was done but nothing incriminating was found. They were then escorted to the Police Training Academy in Belmopan where a thorough search was done. This led to the discovery of a 9mm Beretta pistol along with three magazines.

In court, their bail applications were heard separately. Ramirez and Graham were represented by Attorney Herbert Panton while Brown was represented by Attorney Oscar Selgado.

Bail was granted in the sum of $6,000 plus one surety of the same, which they were all able to meet. The trio is due back in the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court on November 9, 2017.

They are all to report to the Raccoon Street Police Station every Friday effective August 18, 2017 and they must all attend the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court on all their adjournments.
