Roy “Bullet” Craig, 76, Charged for Sexual Assault of Minor

Roy “Bullet” Craig

Since last Thursday, there were reports circulating that vocal Belize City taxi man, Roy Craig, better known as ‘Bullet’ and ‘Street Vibes’ was in trouble with the law. Tonight Bullet is on bail after arraignment this afternoon for the crime of sexual assault of a minor. The seventy-six-year-old outspoken cabbie was unrepresented in court and was given bail of five thousand dollars which he met late this evening. He is to return to court on March eighth. Police have provided detailed information on the incident for which Bullet has been charged. Last Thursday, they were tipped that Craig had taken a minor into a room at a hotel on Dolphin Drive. They responded just before nine p.m. to find Craig and a sixteen-year-old boy nude inside room thirty at Honey’s Hotel. Both were detained. The minor claimed that he was picked up by Craig on Caesar Ridge Road. They stopped by an ATM, and then went to a restaurant to purchase beers before they drove to the hotel where Craig paid for the room. According to a police report, the minor further alleges that after he was offered beer, Craig attempted to perform an unnatural act with him. That was interrupted when police came to the room. Here’s what police had to say:
