“Rural Rapid Response yesterday intercepted a black Infinity QX4 with license plate BC46386 belonging to Carlos Abraham who is a person of interest in the aggravated burglary in Burrell Boom. At the time the vehicle was occupied by Kingsley Cadley, 34 years and Anthony Garbutt , 42 years. When our Rural Rapid Response pulled the vehicle over the occupant threw a firearm out the window which was a .22 revolver. They recovered five live rounds and one expended shell. Apparently the firearm was recently fired because the shell and the firearm were warm.”

Honorary Consul General for Lebanon to Belize, Sarkis Abou- Nehra was not in the country during the burglary. Cadle appeared in court where he pleaded guilty to the firearm charges and was sentenced to five years.
