Magistrate’s vehicle stolen, set ablaze

The theft and arson of a vehicle belonging to a member of the judiciary is not an everyday occurrence. But over the weekend Magistrate Shanti Morrison reported that her sixty-five-thousand dollar SUV went missing from the street in front of her house in Ladyville. On Saturday morning around four-thirty it was discovered burnt up near the Chetumal Street Bridge, Belize City. Morrison told police that the vehicle was stolen sometime between Friday and Saturday. The vehicle was burnt almost beyond recognition with neither the license plate nor VIN identifiable.

“On Saturday there was a vehicle on fire by Chetumal Bridge. This vehicle was reported stolen by somebody from Ladyville. We cannot exactly tell you if it is the same vehicle because it didn’t have any license plate number and the VIN number was completely destroyed and very difficult for us to track to see if it is the same vehicle that was reported in Ladyville as stolen that is involved in this fire.”

    Hmmmmmm. Suspect. Amazing, a sixty five thousand dollars vehicle. What’s the salary scale? Paid for or bank owned? In the US, insurance companies do due diligence before payout. Anyone with sense can figure out what I’m alluding to. The cost of this vehicle makes it almost impossible for easy theft because it’s a newer vehicle, most of which is electronic. You just can’t put a screwdriver in there or hot-wire anything. I was trying to be modest but this is HIGHLY SUSPECT. And while we’re talking about magistrates, let’s talk about one in Belmopan who has construction going on for something, even if he’s paying a mortgage, would equate to at least to thirds of his salary. Word is, and I have proof from one of his “payees”, he made a lot of cases go away or steered them to his courtroom. He had already gotten in trouble for this already by steering a case to his courtroom for someone he’s currently involved with. Apparently, he hasn’t learnt his lesson. I digress.
