The police have arrested a suspect in relation to the double murder of Deon Faber and Allen Martinez. The police utilized surveillance footage to detain the suspect and they are also looking for a woman and another man in relation to the double homicide.
ASP Alejandro Cowo, O.C, C.I.B, Belize: “Police were called to shots being fired in the Boca Del Rio area of San Pedro Town. As a result, they proceeded to that location where they visited a small house just before the Sir Barry Bowen bridge where inside the house they observed the motionless body of a male person behind the house and another person inside of one of the rooms. Initial information to the police is that Deon Faber and Allen Martinez, both of them were inside the residence of Mr.Faber when someone entered through the front door and fired several shots in their direction causing their injuries. Injuries were received to their bodies, one whilst he was in the back yard and the other whilst he was in the room with the deceased’s wife.”
Reporter: So since then you all have made an arrest?
ASP Alejandro Cowo, O.C, C.I.B, Belize: “In reference to that on Saturday police arrested and charged Anthony Carballo, 25 years of a Tigris Street address for two counts of murder. They are residents from Belize and yes they had just gone to San Pedro on that morning when the shooting happened. We don’t believe it is a gang issue, we believe that there are other motives behind it that we are still trying to ascertain but definitely we don’t believe it has anything to do with gangs.”
