“When you say theft, do you mean under a hundred or over a hundred.”

“It is less than that. It is about ten of them so far that we can account for. We do not have any link that they are associated in any way with anyone here in Belize. We know that yes they were renting a house here in Ladyville and that is about the only link that they had to any Belizean.”

Jafet was charged with the theft of three hundred dollars Belize currency from Atlantic Bank in Corozal Town. Hernandez was charged with the theft of five hundred dollars and Rodriguez was charged with the theft of two hundred dollars. The Mexican trio was caught on Friday in Corozal Town with about sixty international bank cards, believed to be stolen, along with a substantial amount of Mexican currency. According to police, they had withdrawn more than one hundred thousand dollars from Atlantic Bank ATMs throughout the country since November last year.
