Police Commissioner says he did not know William Mason – but knew of alter ego

Allen Whylie

Commissioner of Police Allen Whylie was away on leave for some time; in fact, he was out of the country when the entire saga involving accused murderer William “Danny” Mason was unraveling. Mason was charged for the beheading of Pastor Llewellyn Lucas whose head he carried in a bucket in his truck. In the midst of that political crisis, Whylie lost his boss Minister John Saldivar who was stripped of the police ministry. Saldivar’s name came up consistently in the Mason debacle. Numerous top cops are also known to have gone up to Intelco Hill where Mason lived.  Mason made substantive contributions to the Police Football Club managed by Senior Superintendent Alford Grinage; he had also made a fifty-thousand dollar donation to the Belmopan Bandits, owned by Saldivar. In his three years at the Head of the Police Department, Whylie told the media today that he had never met Mason or didn’t know of him or received any donation for the department from him.  But did he know Ted Ouelett?

“No, [hahaha] I think most of Belize has been asked that question. I can categorically deny I don’t know Mister Mason. I’ve met Mister Mason; I have no relationship with Mister Mason.”


“Did you hear of him though because the Assistant Commissioner of Police Edward Broaster said that in 2014, when he was made aware of the dealing of this individual, they looked him up and he forwarded that information to you?”


Allen Whylie

“Well I don’t know what Mister Broaster said, I can say that in 2014, I don’t recall ever hearing a Mister Mason and that’s my fair recollection.”



“So no one in the police department informed you of this guy and the fact that he was involved in scamming people?”


Allen Whylie

“As I said, I had never heard of Mister Mason. I had heard earlier this year in terms of a gentleman, a Canadian, Ted Ouellett. Nobody had made that connection to me that Ted Ouellett and Mason were one of the same.”



“So what was it that you heard of Ouellett?”


Allen Whylie

“Well the same thing that was on the internet in terms of that he had scammed various people out of money for investments and that was my extent of what I knew of him.”

    This inept bureaucrat who poses as our Police Commissioner is nothing but a another politically placed “yes man”. Now he’s trying to pull the “mi no noh” crap and he’s our top cop. What a joke!
