The police had made quick breaks in the Foster case in the west and some daylight robberies in Belize City. And though we may commend the department for the quick response, some police officers don’t respect the law. Yesterday, the police were stationed at a checkpoint in Succotz Village in the Cayo District. According to ACP Joseph Myvett, the police had to arrest one of their own as a constable was found with contraband beer.
ACP Joseph Myvette: They intercepted a white pickup driven buy one Godfrey Moreira a Police constable attached to the Southern part of the country and upon conducting searches inside the vehicle; a total of 15 cases of assorted can bears was found. As a result he was detained and the matter was handed over to the Customs Department.
In addition to being charged for the contraband, Godfrey Moreira will also have to face disciplinary actions within the police department.
