GSU discovers firearms

The minister intends to take his firebrand into the heart of troubled communities and that is also where the Gang Suppression Unit (GSU) removed two firearms from the streets. On Sunday February twenty fourth, members of the GSU were on operation on Lakeview Street, Belize City, and conducted a search in an open lot. The search resulted in the discovery of a sawed-off, twelve Gauge Shotgun without brand and serial number, wrapped in a transparent plastic bag hidden under some garbage. No one was in the area at the time of the discovery.  However, officers believe the firearm may have been an asset of the Ghost Town Crips which resides nearby. Earlier this morning at ten thirty, during an operation in the vicinity of Prince Street, GSU Officers searched an abandoned house. From the property, officers recovered one nine-millimeter pistol. The gun was found tucked in a cement block. No one was in the area at the time of the discovery therefore; the firearm was labeled as found property.

    I mean come on mein…please dont tell me the police are so dumb that they couldnt have picked up on this trend from a long time ago.. I just needed to watch the news and i could have picked up on it…the gangs are using open lots and abandon properties as stash spots to hide drugs, guns, amo, grenades, etc. Wat the police department needs to do is to work hand in hand with the city council in order to crack down on these vacant or abandon lots i see people just throwing trash and using as an urban dump site. It seems no one knows or can get a hold of these people who owns these abandoned properties..they are just a target for criminals to use to conduct criminal activities. Believe me if someone just cleared down those properties an started squatting on them..u best believe how lightning fast the owner comes forward to claim their property as theirs…What the police department needs to do is partner with the city council…clear all those abandon/vacant properties, demolish old buildings, find their owners and give them an incentive to develop those properties, if their owners cannot be found it should become property of the government and sold to the highest bidder. This begs the question, doesnt the city council has laws pertaining to dereliction of property on their books??? if they do they need to enforce them..

    i believe that more crimes will occur simply because the commissioner of police is not doing a good job, the government needs to work hand in hands with the police, if you place a police to work where he or she is not comfortable wat do you think will likely to occur? then we move on to the gsu boss, vidal, he need to be moved from his position he think he is doing tremendous job and nothing he been doing!!!!!!!!
