Another Ministry of Health pick-up stolen, this time in San Ignacio

On the Phone: ASP Daniel Ichie

A government owned vehicle was stolen in the early hours of this morning in San Ignacio Town. The vehicle attached/assigned to the Ministry of Health was parked in an employee’s yard when it was taken. San Ignacio Police don’t have a suspect and are still looking for the pick-up truck but it is known that in previous cases of stolen SUVs, these vehicles turn up across the Western Border. We spoke via phone with Acting O.C. of the San Ignacio Police Superintendent Daniel Iche on the latest government stolen vehicle.

“Sir, do you believe that this vehicle is still in Belizean territory or perhaps it has been taken across the border? Is your investigation pointing in any sort of direction- as that?”
