Police constable charged with Burglary

Brandon Hertular

On Tuesday, we reported that Police Constable Brandon Hertular was facing charges for allegedly stealing, a weapon, cash and cell phones from a house in Belize City. Well, after three nights in police custody, the twenty-five year old cop was formally arraigned today on a charge of Burglary. Hertular appeared before Magistrate Hettie Mae Stuart, pleaded not guilty and was granted bail of six thousand dollars, which he met. The allegations against him are that on March fourth, he entered the home of Shirley Chicas along with another man and stole a nine millimeter Glock Pistol firearm, three cell phones as well as one thousand, six hundred and fifty dollars in cash. Chicas reported that the two men, who were dressed in camouflage uniforms, identified themselves as policemen and claimed to be investigating a robbery. They demanded the licensed firearm, which belongs to her son and took the other items during a search of the house. Chicas says she was told that their belongings would be used as exhibit in the investigation and the men left. PC Hertular, who is now on indictment, is due back in court on April twenty-third.

    Charlie Price for sure not santi castillo. He even lies to himself saying he didnt pump as much money as david hoy. when we all know that bull….Thats the only reason why he won. He is as arrogant and think too much of himself….

    Hang him!!! Hertular, that surname sounds familiar. Disgrace to the human race and to the police department. Lately alot of police are being caught in their dishonest and unsincere actions. God does like evil and all shall be exposed. Alot of the cops are wolves in sheep clothing. Beware. But there are very good policemen, I salute each one of the good cops.

    Hmm, Murphy, I think that the comments were directed to the aforementioned news article. Seems that you are a politically blind, tunnel vision commentator. No matter what the subject matter is, you will always resort to bashing the Prime Minister and blame him for everything, even the rain that falls from the sky. My advice to you, is exercise some level of education rather than being an empty barrel. You know what they say about those empty barrel right?

    who was taking to you annon belizean? politics affect us in our economy. And if our own goverment is giving money for the gangs to expand. Thats why they won most seats in the city. Crime will just get worst…..

    AnnonBelizean, Hush just hush. I am well educated person and I can see the level of corruption this PM and his Govt have gone through! Apparently u r the empty barrel who don’t know a S$$# what’s going on in the Country of Belize. If you defend the PM, surely u r one of those crooked UDP affiliates. Belizeans can bash and blame the PM anytime they want just as he blames everything for the SUPER BOND.

    Why would a police Constable steal a gun? Doesn’t he already have a gun since he is a police officer? This is a very dangerous person to have in the Police force
