Key Player in Multi-Billion $$$ Fraud Scheme Nabbed in San Pedro

David Miguel Nanes Schnitzer

On election eve, police in San Pedro made the arrest of a high profile international figure wanted by International Criminal Police Organization who has been residing in the island for more than two years.  David Miguel Nanes Schnitzer has reportedly obtained Belizean nationality, driver’s license and social security status under a different name. Schnitzer is described as a key player in one of the largest fraud schemes in the United States; he was arrested in an operation by the police and INTERPOL as well as the U.S. Marshals Service. Late this evening, C.I.B. personnel led by Superintendent Hilberto Romero escorted Schnitzer for arraignment at the Belize City Magistrate Court on a single charge of uttering a forged document, that being a Belize driver’s license, SP2269. Schnitzer pleaded guilty but prosecutor Corporal Christopher Smith informed the court that it is not yet certain if a plea can be taken since they are yet to get directives from the D.P.P.’s office as to how to proceed with the matter. The matter was adjourned for Monday, November ninth, 2015. Schnitzer, the reports say, is linked to the U.S. seven million dollar Ponzi scheme in which financier Allen Stanford was the head. Schnitzer was the president of Stanford Group Mexico heading operations in Mexico, Panama and other parts of Latin America.

    Since this man is an experienced fraudster, I feel he is eminently qualified to work for the GOB within the Department of Lands and Surveys. Gasper, give this man a job!
