Senior Citizens Latest Victims of Home Invasion

ASP Fitzroy Yearwood

A pair of senior citizens is the latest victims of a home invasion. On Tuesday night, they were at their home at mile fifteen on the Philip Goldson Highway when burglars entered. The perpetrators were described as being dressed in camouflage, law enforcement clothing. Today, Police Communications Director Yearwood shared detailed with the media.

“They said what appeared to be a police uniform and two dressed in camouflage, one in civilian clothing; I think one in short pants to be exact. But we take these types of attacks very seriously. And while you in the media like use home invasion, we in Belize call it aggravated burglary. We treat every report seriously. Our investigators did a thorough job on that scene. We know that they indicated to us that the assailants may have headed from the direction of Sand Hill towards Ladyville and then probably even in Belize City. So, we are trying to find out who are the orchestrators of this crime. We know yes that it is an elderly couple, they are shaken up and we wouldn’t want to aggravate or frighten members of that community as to believe that this is a norm. We have ramped up our patrols, we have put in place other means that we believe would help us to see if this is just an isolated situation. And if not, we would then try to target anybody that would come up on our radar that would fit this kind of modus operandi.”
