No Charges for O.W. Trio Caught with B.D.F. Material

On Friday, we reported that Orange Walk police had arrested and detained a trio of men, including a Mexican national, found in possession of discarded military uniforms and outboard engines that were once the property of the Belize Defense Force.  The stock of worn battle dress uniforms, along with mechanical parts from the motors, raised serious eyebrows when it was found in the hands of civilians who are not employees of the Ministry of Finance and ought not to have the items in their possession. That ministry, according to Brigadier General David Jones, is responsible for the disposal of those items once the B.D.F. has completed an inventory.  How the used camouflage clothing and detachable boat engines ended up in the possession of Mexican national Estevan de Jesus, who pointed the police to Ramon Torres is still undetermined. A third person, Miguel Baeza, we are told, unknowingly stored some of the uniforms on behalf of Torres at his house in Orange Walk. All three have been released according to Officer Commanding the Orange Walk Police formation, David Chi. But it is known that Torres was part of a team contracted to dispose of the uniforms. Clearly that did not happen and the uniforms surfaced in the hands of De Jesus.

    Ok, someone should be fined for not following orders. It could have been given to poor people to sell as scrap.
