Arthur Young still in hiding after major police bust

Arthur Young

Arthur Young

The Saturday night bust in Vista Del Mar that turned up silencers for weapons, drugs, along with books on making the sound suppressors and guns reveals a new dimension that the police department is facing in its battle against crime.  More than a smoking gun, the police found Errol Haynes inside the home during the bust.  Along with the metal lathe and a sound suppressor under construction, the officers confiscated a Dodge Durango from the residence on Damselfish Drive.  The owner of the home, Loretta Villanueva, said she rented the place to Ruth Esquivel. Esquivel told News Five that she did not live at the home but paid the rent on behalf of her boyfriend Arthur Young.  Young and Haynes were charged with the murder of twenty year old Calvin Young, but that case fell apart after the witness had a sudden case of amnesia which led to a nolle prosequi.   Since the police expressed an interest in Young for the silencers, Young has been in hiding because in his opinion, they want more than just an interview, they want him dead.

Via Phone: Arthur Young, In Hiding

“I really fear for my life because they out to try and kill me. I even heard that couple weeks they had a meeting about me saying that wherever they find me, whatever, I know they got the job to do but they reach the point they are harassing me now. I really don’t know where to turn to because nobody is on my side. And the way I move, I don’t really go and tell this one and tell that one. But you know today I just sit down and say this is one of the best reason I need to bring it to the public also. For the truth, I didn’t do anything wrong for them to try give me a charge I didn’t know about.”

“At this point they say you are a person of interest because you rented the house. Does that bring any comfort to you?”

“Well what I heard is that my name is on the charge sheet. If I’m a person of interest because I’m renting the house then my name should not be on the charge sheet. They went to the house and I heard that they found my old driver’s license and my social card. So I’m saying maybe they are trying to put me there now because I heard couple weeks ago that whatever they can hold against me to send me to jail, do that.  I don’t know why these people are dealing with me like this.”

Jose Sanchez

“So you don’t know anything about the equipment used to make silencer for handguns or books on gun use and tactics?”

“I don’t know nothing about that. I don’t know what they took out of the house. All I heard is that they went there and took Errol Haynes. I don’t know the details of nothing.  I’m not even there at the time when I heard that. I was somewhere far away from there.”

Jose Sanchez

“At this point you don’t intend to go to the police?”

“I’m not, I’m in hiding because I fear my life with the police. So I’m in hiding, I already spoke to my attorney and got I some advice.”

    As to Ms. Esquivel….why was she paying for the rent for a criminal????

    Am not sure if this Arthur was a fugitive already but if so….then Ms. Esquivel should be charged woth aiding a fugitive…

    As to Arthur Young….Grow Up homie…U had the balls to murder an individual…why u afraid now???

    You will be eventually be caught and I hope that another charge is placed to you for obstuction to a criminal investigation…

    Why u hiding? what u got to hide??? if nothing then you would already be cooperating with the police officer…

    The landlord said that house was rented for you by Ms. Esquivel…so why you allowed Mr. Errol Haynes to try produce an illegal weapon in your house??? a silencer… That means you are accomplice of allowing the production of a weapon to contribute to the crime rate of Belize..

    You can cry and say whatever you want BUT we don’t feel pity for criminals…I know u or your rich girl friend will read this….

  3. BELIZEAN PRIDE says:

    his guilty mind keeps him hiding, the Lord is so sweet with us or less he would have make young get a lightening wherever he’s hiding. what goes around comes around. if truly he killed well he shouldn’t be surprised when he feels a pullets in his body anytime from now on.

  4. CHILD OF GOD says:

    in agreement with belizean pride even when we do wrong he still helps us… but for how long if we don’t ask for forgiveness… he might be hiding from the police but, in-case he don’t know even the darkess place god can see as clear as light so he aint hiding from nobody but himself…. and i wont be for too long…

    Arthur fi dead. Kill his family fi no reason. B…fi get bullet. yo can hide from man but not yo consence.

  6. Janelle says:

    I understand all your feelings about the Arthur situation. But if you believe in GOD as you say you do, our God is a forgiven God and he teaches us to forgive. Yes Mr. Young is wrong for his doing but he is still a child of GOD just like you and me. If you ppl are so mad with the crimes in Belize… when you see someone getting murder get your a…. up and report it and then show up the court hering. Just dont blame ppl for doing the crime. you yourselves are doing a crime by seeing the crime and saying nothing. STOP being illiterate!!!

  7. Judgement says:

    People…why must you assume a black man’s guilty for every single thing by mere gossip..The man’s a human being too and even if he has done wrong..surely he deserves a fighting chance to repent. Or would you prefer him dead? He without sin throw the first stone and may God forgive you…Now refocus your energies to the PM

  8. Conscience says:

    Picture this.. when Bin Laden begun posing a threat to America. How did America respond? She defended her territory! If a black male’s existence is threatened.. If a black male sees his brethren fall time after time …and no 1 does nothing..If a black male sees the need to protect his life from not only the streets but also the law itself….let him defend his territory also..let him protect his own life……
