Police have been able to solve a shooting case which took place in February 2018 on East Canal near the Rocky Road Bridge. Esmir Garrido, a 20-year-old construction worker of West Canal, has been arrested and charged in that case and appeared unrepresented before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford at his arraignment on Friday, March 16, 2018.

Before the magistrate, Garrido was read one count of grievous harm and one count of use of deadly means of harm with a deadly instrument upon Reginald Garoy, a taxi driver.

The incident occurred on February 11, 2018 just after 7 p.m. According to the police report, Garoy visited the police station and was suffering from gunshot injuries to the right side of the cheek and his finger. As a result, he was taken to the KHMH. Initial police investigation revealed that Garoy and another man were near the Rocky Road Bridge when a lone gunman went up to Garoy and fired several shots at him causing his injuries.

In court, Garrido pleaded not guilty but because a firearm was used, he was denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until May 16, 2018.
