Thief Makes Off with Firearms from Hopkins Police Station

Here’s a story you don’t hear everyday…Hopkins Police are investigating a burglary in which two nine millimeter guns were stolen. The good news is that they don’t have to go very far to conduct that investigation. The bad news is that the burglary happened right at the Hopkins Police Station. The bold burglar somehow made off with two pistols, one carrying eight live rounds and the other ten. To add insult to injury, one of those weapons had been taken into the station by a resident of the village for safekeeping. It’s a major black eye on the Hopkins Police, made worse because they believe that it was an inside job. Sources tell News Five that the son of a senior officer at the station was detained for the burglary, but subsequently released. The burglar also made off with two handheld radios.

    WE NEED HELP! 10 home invasions, two stabbings, , an armed robbery, and now this within 1 MONTH in Hopkins. Police should be ashamed, the current Sargent turns a blind eye to reports, sends victims away and covers for known thiefs so because of family ties. Residents are afraid. This is not gang-related, this is common thiefs getting braver with lack of police presence . tell us what will be done TODAY – not the 20 new police you will send soon with no housing or training? Government , candidates, defense – tell and show us what you are going to do..to help us, to put the community safety first over , to set an example for the rest of Belize and show us hope against the chaos taking over this country.

    Unfortunately, until professional administrations, supervision, honesty, pride to serve, and accountability are put into the BPD . . throughout its ranks . . . our slide into third world crime and loss of society will ever increase.

    They THINK its an inside job? Da no maybe. This is an inside job. Everybody knows it, and everyon in Hokins knows who is the inside man.

    Time for them to remove certain people.

    I was robbed in Hopkins while I slept in my room. The thief cut the screen and reached inside the room to my belongings WHILE I WAS SLEEPING 6 FEET AWAY!

    I reported this to the police there and he said basically they couldn’t do anything, tough luck. It was useless to even report it. Hopkins needs Military presence or real police to protect the populace. The crime there is out of hand. If this news gets out to the broader audience, tourism there will collapse.
