USA busts many Belizean Bloods in sting

A number of Belizeans were said to have been arrested in a major bust involving gangs and drugs. The US media is reporting that as many as twenty-three Belizeans affiliated with the “Bloods Gang” were arrested by federal authorities in Chicago. According to one report in the Sun Times, those arrested include Jerry Johnson a.k.a “Kaiden Bennett” and “Kalvin Howell”, who directed the notorious Belizean Bloods drug trafficking ring. Sun Times goes on to say that Johnson headed a distribution network that began in Belize then webbed out to Illinois, Utah, Ohio, Indiana, New York and California. Johnson’s activities included the distribution of wholesale quantities of powder and crack cocaine. Johnson was arrested in Salt Lake City Wednesday. On Tuesday afternoon, authorities arrested five other who authorities say were preparing to rip-off fifty kilos of cocaine from a competing drug organization. In the end, they were set up in an undercover sting operation and were arrested. The Sun Times states, “A criminal complaint charges that they were planning to pull off an armed robbery — and, if necessary, shoot — three members of a Mexican drug cartel.” The Sun Times Newspaper, further states that the operations were uncovered through a simultaneous probe by federal authorities, “Authorities say that in 2009, the Chicago Field Office of the U.S. State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service began looking at alleged passport fraud by Belizean nationals. Apparently the gang members were using fraudulent U.S. passports and multiple identities in their schemes. At the same time the FBI and Evanston and Chicago police were investigating alleged narcotics trafficking by suspected members of the Belizean Bloods.” Another report states that a U.S operation called Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) which seeks to uncover and break up transnational gangs involved with drug related activities, arrested close to two dozen suspected gang members. Now, according to this report fifteen are from Mexico, four from Belize, and one from Jamaica. The alleged gang members are said to be from a number of gangs, including Latin Kings, Belizean Bloods, Two-Six Boys, Sureno 13S, and Latin Dragons. While almost two dozen have been arrested, according to Local Tribe Newspaper of Evanston, local police are looking for the two alleged members of the Belizean Bloods street gang in connection with drug and money laundering offenses. The media stated that federal arrest warrants have been issued for twenty-nine year old Leonard Soberanis and thirty year old Sheldon Morales, who are wanted on a variety of narcotics related offenses and are considered armed and dangerous.

    As sure as hell Rizzo but I wah beg fi mi people dem. Dean, since you and Obama are buddy O’pals and he is withdrawing his troops from Iraq or Afganistan. Can you please insure all of them for $1M each, donate them to fight in Afganistan, make sure they get killed, and balance our budget with the Insurance funds?. It is quite obvious that you’re incapable of runninng our country with the idiots that are terrorizing our country at present and we sure in the hell don’t need more killing here. “If you can’t stand the heat, then come out of the kitchen”.

    Living in Chicago, it is very embarassing, it made the news big time, it is the conversation on the job. they are asking if I know any of these people…. Yes they will serve time and sadly will add to the already problems in the Jewel.

  7. ladymatura says:

    All of the above really made me laugh.. but not that what you all say is nto serious… it is true… we do not want them here and it surely not good how criminals are rewarded with jobs while our graduates do not even have a program to turn to to create a job much less get a job. WE surely have not put in place the plans to solve our crime problems although i still think it is solvable and so these types will just make things worst. Now thsi set have Belize name even stinker abroad.. don’t be surprised they get help and connection form our same officials or high society people here in Belize…
