R.E.D. Police Deny Close Ties to Mason

William “Danny” Mason has become the proverbial bogeyman hiding in the closets and under the beds of Cabinet Ministers, high-level politicians and high-ranking Police Officers. Even securely behind bars at the Belize Central Prison, the con-man allegedly turned murderer is still somehow pulling strings. An article in the Amandala Newspaper this morning made a slightly more than subtle claim that Mason was somehow a little too close for comfort with top cop Edward Broaster and Officer Commanding Hattieville Assistant Superintendent of Police Rochelle Chan. But is that assertion credible, or just sensational journalism fueled by an incarcerated con artist? Today Rural Eastern Division Commander Edward Broaster called a press briefing to explain that it is certainly the latter since he has never even met Mason.


ACP Edward Broaster, Regional Commander, Rural Eastern Division

“It is quite apparent that the reporter of this story wants to associate myself with Danny Mason. This is the closest I’ve ever been to Danny Mason. Danny Mason and I have no informal or formal communication with him. I had no messenger as it pertains to any donation or what have you. Like I said, I think it was a week ago when I briefed the media. Three weeks prior to the death of the pastor, I received a message through Mister Chan from Danny Mason wanting to meet and I refused to meet with him and I never met with him. And I have never solicited any donations whatsoever from Mister Mason through any individual. The first time I got to know of Mister Mason was when one of my great friend, and I will call him name now, Richard Evans who is living in Los Angeles, brought Danny Mason to my attention. This was in 2014 when he met Danny Mason at Baker’s Ranch, where Danny Mason, according to Mister Evans, was selling him some real dreams and pie in the sky. And when we did our research, we found out that Danny Mason swindled and ripped off some Canadians and other people hence the reason why he ran from where he was living. And since then, I had no interest; no intention of meeting or soliciting any donation from Mister Mason.”

“Sir, the article makes mention of Rochelle Chan, the O.C. of Hattieville, being a sort of go between you and Mister Mason. Can you tell us what if any messages were delivered to you?”


ACP Edward Broaster

“Well like I said, the only message that came from Danny Mason was wanting to meet with me and that invitation was turned down. I said I am not meeting with him and that’s perhaps the only message that Mister Chan went back and told him. Otherwise on that, there has been no communication between myself and Danny Mason.”

  1. Ali BaBa-row, chief thief says:

    Hey I saw this criminal back in 2014. I showed respect and did not investigate.
    Honor amongst thieves. Hard to believe he got caught like this.
    Must be a guat-pup conspiracy.
