Notorious OW Gang Figure Captured

Twenty-nine year old Juan Carlos “Canikas” Quintero is tonight behind bars at the Belize Central Prison. Quintero who was on the run for months and believe to have been residing somewhere in the Yucatan State of Mexico was captured yesterday while in Orange Walk Town. A warrant for his arrest was issued in 2018 as police believe that he was the trigger man in a shooting incident during a spate of gang-related shootings. Quintero stands accused of shooting twenty-three-year-old Justin Diaz on September thirtieth, 2018. Diaz, who survived, was at the corner of Sapodilla and Zericote Streets when one of two men on motorcycles opened fire. This morning, Quintero was arraigned on charges of attempted murder and use of deadly means of harm. Since the matter is of an indictable nature, no plea was taken. No bail was offered and he is scheduled to reappear in court on August sixth.  Quintero is a known gang figure to Orange Walk Police. He has been linked to the so-called “Back-a-town” Gang.
