Brothers Charged with Burglaries in Bella Vista

Joseph Myvett

There were two robberies in Bella Vista Village last month. Two brothers were arrested and charged for burgling the same house on separate occasions. But the family of the boys says that it appears police conspired with villagers to have the brothers arrested and sent off to jail. ACP Joseph Myvett says they have received no such reports.

“Sometime around the twenty-fourth of June, there was a report of a burglary in progress where one of the Pop brothers was caught by some civilians during a burglary. He was then handed over to police and charged and since been remanded to prison. Subsequently, a few days later there was an attempt to burglarize the same house by the brother of the accused where he was again caught by some civilians and handed over the police. In the process, police conducted a search on him where one nine millimeter round was found on him for which he has since been charged along with the attempted burglary and is now remanded to prison.  As we speak, the police is in the process of recording a statement from those persons who are alleging they were witnesses to the incident.”
