Belize City Council Bailiff Remanded for Unauthorized Firearm Upgrades

Thirty-eight-year-old Brandon Gillett, a bailiff at the Belize City Council’s Municipal Court will be spending the Christmas holiday at the Belize Central Prison after being remanded for making unauthorized upgrades to his licensed firearm. Gillett appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, charged with five counts of altering a firearm without previous permission in writing of the Firearms and Ammunition Control Board. In court, Gillett asked the magistrate for a sentencing indication, and after finding out the penalty he pleaded guilty to all counts. However, he did not agree with the facts as they were read to him, so an equivocal plea of not guilty was entered on his behalf. Bail was denied in the first instance, and he was remanded to prison. Gillett is due back in court on February 21, 2024. Allegations against Gillett are that he outfitted his licensed firearm with a flashlight, grips, sights, and other modifications without prior permission, which goes against section 32 of the Firearms Act, Chapter 143 of the Substantive laws of Belize. A video of Gillett brandishing the modified firearm began circulating yesterday and police officers responded by asking him to present his two licensed weapons for inspection. That inspection led to his arrest.
