The Gang Suppression Unit was successful in removing another gun from the streets of Belize City when they busted 25-year-old Glenford Bain Jr. with a nine millimeter pistol in the Kraal Road area on Monday, August 4.

Bain, a resident of #3834 Rivero Street, appeared in the Belize City Magistrates Court on Tuesday, August 5, where he was charged with one count of keeping a firearm and one count of keeping ammunition without a license. According to police, officers of the Gang Suppression Unit were on mobile patrol near Rivero Street when Officer Sam Gladden spotted Bain and two other men. According to Gladden, when Bain noticed the officers he headed into a yard. Officer Gladden allegedly saw Bain stoop down to remove an object from his pants waist and placed it on the ground. That was when Gladden approached Bain and took him back to the place where the object was dropped. A nine millimeter CZ-75 pistol was found loaded with four S&B brand nine millimeter rounds and one GFL hallow point nine millimeter round. Bain was immediately arrested and taken into police custody with the firearm.

Bain was unrepresented when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith. He pleaded not guilty to both charges. Due to the nature of the offenses, bail was denied and he was remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until September 30.
