Ladyville Police Say Burglary Tied to Domestic Situation

Edward Broaster

Last week, we reported on a woman detained under curious circumstances at the Ladyville Police station.  Ana Villacorte, a victim of an alleged burglary, told News Five that she was locked down last Tuesday after she discovered that her house in Maxboro, Belize District had been burglarized. Villacorte, who is the common-law wife of attorney Arthur Saldivar, said that while she was in the process of giving a statement, she was detained and placed in a holding cell without reason. Today, we asked Assistant Commissioner of Police Edward Broaster about the incident. Here’s his response.

“We have a report that there was a burglary there. I must mention right now that the circumstance of that case is very complicated. We have found some of the…the investigation has revealed some suspicious activity and we are investigating that matter as a domestic issue.”


According to Villacorte, a safety deposit box which was inside one of the bedrooms had been stolen.
