Suspect detained for murder of Avondale “Hogbone” Fuller

A few hours after the deadly shooting police detained a suspect whom they believed could assist them in their investigation.  The murder of Avondale Fuller, despite increased police presence in the streets of Belize City, succeeds a series of retaliatory shootings in what is believed to be an ongoing gang rivalry.  News Five spoke to Police Press Officer Sergeant Yearwood about the heightened alert on the streets.

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“The person in custody is from one of their rival gangs. This person was in police custody. He was being questioned in connection with the murder of Enrique Trapp that occurred over the weekend. He was released from police custody yesterday sometime after eleven and by five o’clock; we had him back in custody in connection for questioning in the Avondale Fuller murder.”

Fitzroy Yearwood

“Avondale Fuller, he is regarded as someone big in the George Street Gang. Is the police on high alert? Are you expecting people to more vigilant in the areas these rival gangs operate?”

Sgt. Fitzroy Yearwood

“Jose, not just since the Avondale Fuller murder, we have been on high alert for a while now and we will continue in this manner. You will be seeing more police in your streets. We will be conducting more stop and search; we will be searching more vehicles. It might slow down traffic, so we would like to encourage the working people and well I know school will be out by Friday to leave for work a little earlier in the event we must stop and search suspected criminals in the street that it wouldn’t affect you in your tardiness in arriving at your workplace. What I can tell you is that we have several operations that are being run in Belize City in our efforts in trying to address this crime situation.”

    The suspect didn’t do it, ask his Motherm, I’m sure he was on his knees in front of his bed praying for peace in the streets& that the police stop harassing him.

    Leave Rod alone……people need an outlet to voice their frustration and Rod is doing the same thing that we all are. That’s HIS way of expressing himself. At least he is not a part of the crime epidemic. Leave the guy alone. Somebody needs to put it in plain English and raw creole for these gGod-forsaken politicians to understand that we have ad ENOUGH

    Alright Disgusted, that’s the spirit! Rod is cool. He is just frustrated like the rest of us. This one goes out to ROD.

    How sad! Belize is nothing but a BIG DISGRACE!!!! YOU REEP WHAT YOU SEW!!!! I wont even comment on Belize Government or the Police Dept. It’s just a waste of time…God will deal with them, they will all ROT IN HELL…Gang members are such COWARDS. The time and effort they put into fighting rival gang members, they need put into the Government and Police Dept. They are the real ENEMIES. I feel sorry for the kids, hopefully they wont repeat the behavior that these IDIOTS are displaying.

    westernmermaid did you try something with Rod to be able to make such a lawless statement? He is right. and like most of us disgusted with all the unnecessary murders in Belize. How many more people need to die before this lame excuse that we have for a governmnet decide to do something? All Barrow survives on is his ego and his head is a monumental display of that! It is not only barrow that should resign, it is both the USELESS, INCOMPTENT GOV and BARROW
