On Wednesday, October 25, 2017, local recording artist, 21-year-old Bernard Cayetano a.k.a “Unlimited”, was taken to court to be arraigned on three criminal charges. He was brought before Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser to be read the charges of obstruction, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer.

The police allege that on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, Cayetano resisted the arrest of Officer Valdez and proceeded to assault him in an attempt to obstruct him from executing a search at a house on Croton Lane in Belize City.

In court, Cayetano pleaded not guilty to all charges and was released on bail of $1,000 with an adjournment for January 13, 2018.  According to Cayetano, the charges laid against him were made in an attempt to justify police brutality against him at the home of Kenneth “Big Tom” Flowers, his boss. Cayetano detailed his version of events which entailed a host of brutal acts performed against him by several police officers.

The prosecutor in court, Inspector Egbert Castillo, had no objection to bail being granted to Cayetano. With that Chief Magistrate, Sharon Fraser offered him bail in the sum of $1,000 and one surety of the same amount, which he has since met. He is due back in court on January 13, 2017.

His mother, Genevieve Cayetano, was present at the arraignment. She summarized the hard time she had locating her son. After hearing that her son was in police custody, she was taken on a wild goose chase between precincts until she was finally able to locate him. When he was located, she had to make a report to the Professional Standard Bureau to allow Cayetano to seek medical attention.
