Arthur Young out on bail

Arthur Young

The infamous Arthur Young is back on the streets of Belize City after he was granted bail in Magistrate’s Court today. Young was caught at the Mexican airport trying to catch an early morning flight to Mexico City using a fake passport with the alias Edward Roberts. After three months on the run, Young was handed over to Belizean authorities and was arraigned on July second for Keeping Prohibited Material, Drug Trafficking and Possession of Controlled Drugs. The charges came after a bust at a house in Vista Del Mar, Ladyville, where police found a gun silencer, equipment and materials to manufacture the weapon accessory as well as several books about firearms. Young was linked to the crime because his Social Security Card and old driver’s license were found at the house. Since the offence involved prohibited weapon material, Young had to wait three months before he could get bail at the Magistrates Court level. But his bail today didn’t come without resistance from the prosecutor, who argued that Young had violated the conditions of bail that was granted at the Supreme Court in February for a firearm offence. Magistrate Sharon Frazer, however, explained that it was matter for the Supreme Court and she had no jurisdiction in that area. So Young was granted bail of ten thousand dollars plus two sureties, which he met this evening.

    Why does Belize accept different kinds of justice for different people? Well-connected crooks walk free while the common man bears the full weight of the wheels of justice.

    WE NEED TO START OVER.

  6. Charles Green says:

    “as well as several books about firearms” – are firarms books illegal in Belize?

  7. BT says:

    He’s out on bail for a firearm offense and he’s caught in Mexico. How is that not a clear cut case of violating his bail? Whether or not the magistrate in this most recent charge has jurisdiction over the supreme court matter should not matter. Why did the supreme court not immediately revoke his bail for the simple fact he left the country while out on bail?

  8. SAM says:

    Its not the Belize Police Department that cannot hold him, if u read correctly when the police finally got him the courts granted him what he wanted, the courts are more corrupt than the darn Police and the gov’t of the day got his back
