More Gang Members Detained Under New SOE

As part of an ongoing law enforcement operation to round up known gang members who are said to be involved in the recent flare up of violence in Belize City, several persons have been detained and will be processed at the Queen Street Police Station before being taken to the Belize Central Prison.  Under the most recent anti-gang state of emergency a list of wanted persons was published earlier today and from that list, at least six persons have since been captured.  Last weekend there were two murders in Belize City that were gang-related, prompting an immediate response from the Ministry of National Security and the Belize Police Department to crack down on gang activity.  On Thursday, as many as twenty-seven persons, including four females, were remanded to the Belize Central Prison for the mandatory thirty-day detention.
