$30,000 offered for return of weapons cache

But in addition to a police investigation, the B.D.F. and its ministry is also offering the public a handsome reward for any information that can lead to the recovery of the weapons. Allen Whylie, the C.E.O. in the Ministry of Defense says that the ministry will give thirty thousand dollars for the recovery of these weapons.

“There is a criminal investigation being done by the police. The Belize Defence Force is also doing their own internal investigation. The Minister has order a court of inquiry to also see where if any errors were made and what we need to do to ensure that a reoccurrence does not occur. It’s a serious breach of security in terms of the burglary that had occurred and the weapons are out there on the streets. The government has authorized a reward of thirty thousand dollars to be offered for the recovery of these weapons—no questions asked. The stationary guards are there—that is already in place—we are looking at the lighting situation, the fence will be repaired, we will also be looking at the surveillance cameras as you’ve said—I’ve also taken note of that. Those are things that we will be working on actively. We will be changing the format in terms of the security of the doors—additional security features will be placed on the doors.”

“Well C.I.B. commenced an investigation this morning concerning this report and we are conducting now interviews. But at this point we are not leaving anything. We have no specific leads; however, we are looking at all angles to see who are the perpetrators of this crime and hopefully we will have more information as the investigation unfold. But at this time, we have no specific information as to who is actually involved with this incident, but as the investigation unfolds then we will have more information regarding it.”

Burning questions still remain including why twenty-four hour guards are not used at weapons storage areas. On January eleventh, 2010 an M-4 Carbine was also stolen from the B.D.F., but the recent robbery is by far one of the most daring to the security forces.

    This is just like when the crackhead steals your garbage can and then “finds” it for you for a $10 reward. But PM says he won’t pay gangs to “hold it down”…. hmmm?

    Pray God this is as dumb as they get!

    Leadership is not only politics! It seems like politics is all we get out of our elected officials! The only time these guys work a little is before the election.

    THE ONLY THING THAT MR. BARROW PAYS REAL ATTENTION TO IS HOW TO SUFFOCATE THE RIGHTS OF THE BELIZEAN PEOPLE IN CHANGING THE CONSTITUTION. HE IS AT THE TOP OF HIS GAME WHEN DENIGRATING THE OPPISITION AT THE MEETINGS OF THE HOUSE.WHEN IT COMES TO THE OF THE PEOPLE, MR BARROW DOES NOT GIVE DAMM OR HE JUST PLAIN INCOMPETENT. THE LIVES OF THE YOUTH THE COUNTRY IS JUST ONE LESS CRUFFY TO DEAL WITH WHILE MR BARROW MILKS THE WEALTH OF THE COUNTRY FOR HIS FAMILY AND HIS POLITICAL CRONIES. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT MR. BARROW HAS A YELLOW STREAK DOWN THE MIDDLE OF HIS BACK OR WAS MAYOR RIGHT WHEN SHE ACCUSED HIM OF HAVING BO BALLS.
