Former Mayor Alfonzo Cruz kept overnight at the Belmopan police station

Former Mayor of San Ignacio Alfonso ‘Ponchis’ Cruz spent Thursday night in lockdown at the Belmopan Police Station. As we told you, he was picked up by San Ignacio Police at around five-thirty Thursday evening and immediately taken to Belmopan for questioning. Cruz’s signature and stamp appear on many nationality documents facilitated by former Minister of State Elvin Penner, including the one issued to South Korean national Won Hong Kim. Sources tell us that police had been looking for Cruz for questioning since the start of the investigation in March. Those sources also tell us police believe that Cruz absconded across the western border to avoid being taken in. But he came back, and was promptly picked up. News Five has also been able to confirm that Cruz was questioned by investigators from the National Crimes Investigation Branch, and held overnight. He was released today.
