Crooked Tree Home Invader Nabbed by Police…

Tyrone Davis

There was a horrific aggravated burglary on July thirtieth at the Crooked Tree home of Pastor Maurice Westby. His wife, fifty-one year old Betty, her mother, Vilma Wade and their fourteen year old son were held up by two burglars, one brandishing a knife. The men, who demanded money before escaping with Westby’s licensed firearm, left the family in fear of their lives especially so because Betty recognized one of her attackers as Tyrone Davis, when his hood came off during a struggle with him. According to the family, Davis was hired during Easter to assist with the expansion of their wooden house. Since then, police had a warrant for Davis’ arrest. Well today, newly installed Rural Executive Officer, Inspector Frederick Gordon, told News Five that Davis was nabbed in Belmopan, where it is believed he had been hiding.
