Belizean Bloods misrepresenting Belize in Utah

Last week, the Jewel received an international black eye because of some Belizeans who were too proud of their heritage.  About two dozen men and one woman have been arrested in a sting that involved gangs, narcotics, and fraudulent American passports. During the investigation in Chicago, agents seized bulk amounts of powder and crack cocaine, firearms, assault rifles and cash.  The group at the center of the investigation is the Belizean Bloods which is led by Jerry Johnson who inherited his father’s drug connections after his deportation to Belize. In addition to Johnson, ten other Belizean Blood associates appeared in Federal Court last week. According to some reports, the gang was about to get a foothold in UTAH when they were set up to believe they were going to rob and possibly kill members of a cartel.  The following is a US broadcast of the arrests.

Since the reports were first made, eight more persons were arrested bringing the total caught so far to nineteen.

    What a shame! Bad publicity for Belize.!!!

  2. Storm says:

    We can’t lock up our gangsters here, but I’m pretty sure the States will do it for us with these thugs. Justice up there can be very serious.

  3. Horn says:

    It is truly a misrepresentation. Whereas SOME of these persons where born in Belize, they were CERTAINLY socialized , and acquired they criminal degrees there in the United States I think it is a misrepresentation and the authorities in Belize should issue statement on the matter. I have been monitoring crime news in Belize for years, and I don’t recall any of those names surfacing on the local scene. Maybe channel 5 can search the archives .

    I come here to read to news Everyday and sometimes I view the comments of others. I notice most ppl has alot to say about all the negative topics in Belize and there is no comments on the good ones.
    Its Sad that we can put so much energy in negativity and forget about the little good there is.

    Horn u got it right. Those persons are Belizeans by birth but they live in the USA and do their business here so why should Belize be degraded. When they are sent back to Belize reject them and tell America to deal with them. Aiy

    in a short time they will be in belize carring their craft on our streets. they are already train in crimes belize police are still to catch up on.

  7. BT says:

    We should hope most of them were born in the USA because otherwise they will be deported back here. But considering passport fraud was one of the offenses, the chances are they were in the US illegally, so they’ll be back “home” to wreak havoc on Belize very soon.

    America have always condone a lot of criminal behaviors, white color and blue color, but with the hard economy people are demanding more from their politicians, so it is not business as usual. Crime has become the norm of the day, the jails are filled to capacity, so it is all a matter of economics, which is the cheaper way of dealing with these criminals? yeah, they will be on their way to the Jewel…The Jewel need to build a prison in PG, go back to the old colonial way of dealing with criminals, but of course we have these same people dictate to us how, because of them funding the Jewel…

  9. Bulba Martinez says:

    To Somiah, “to hell with building a jail in PG, we need your garbage Down South”. We have suffered enough with GOBH/GOB’S abandonment since Colonialism and have held our own through what we now call economic depression, without much henious crimes in the south. I still want to beg the PM to Insure the idiots, donate them to his buddy Obama to drop them in the middle of Afghanistan with Sling Shots only, and then collect their Insurance benefit for a better Belize after their death. Walla, wih balance dih Budget and dih beat goes on till wih stop cry bout economy. Back in the days, we had the “Barter System” due to lack of Industrys, without our Forefathers and Ancestors complaining. With development of a nation, I agree these things will occur but, it has gone to the dump in our country. “Easy Money” they say, and then they destroy our lives and country for it.

  10. Bulba Martinez says:

    Somiah, I meant to say that, “We don’t need your garbage Down South”. If Obama noh want dem, dehn put dem pah wa sinking Barge far out inna dih Reef wid wa gallon ah wata, mek dem drift to !-$$.

  11. Earl Grey says:

    A PRISON FARM IN TOLEDO IS NOT A BAD IDEA….it would help the economy, provide jobs, and cheaper food.

  12. blue eyes says:

    These ppl are using faking name. I can recoginze 2 of them and I am sure the names are wrong.

  13. Critical Analysis says:

    That’s 19 more criminals headed to Belize!
