Accused Claims Police Set Him Up in Ammunition Case

A man remanded to the Belize Central Prison over an ammunition charge is claiming that police set him up. Nineteen-year-old Keon Straughan appeared in court today charged with possession of unlicensed ammunition, to which he pleaded not guilty. He alleged that police planted the rounds in his bag and that if he knew he had rounds on him he never would have packed them in his bag. He pleaded with the court not to send him to prison as he has a young son. However, due to the nature of the offense, bail was denied and he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until January 8, 2024. Police say that on Monday, they found nine hollow point nine millimeter rounds on him during a search.
