Police Looking Deeper into Grace Primary School Burglary
A break-in occurred at Grace Primary School on Faber’s Road over the weekend. Several goods from the cafeteria were stolen and strewn, including food. All of the remaining food had to be thrown away. The Vice Principal’s Office was ransacked and the thieves stole a lot of items including a desktop computer and locks on the burglar bar leading to that very office were also wrenched off. According to reports from the school’s management, several persons from the area tried to contact the police department to report the incident, but the attempts were in vain. Police Press Officer, Fitzroy Yearwood, says he will look deeper into the matter.
ASP. Fitzroy Yearwood, Public Relations, Belize Police Department: “A lot of people try to say that they called 9-1-1 but I want to make it categorically clear to the general public every call that comes in to our 9-1-1 center is recorded whether or not it’s a prank call or a call giving us information about a crime it’s recorded. So when I’m finished here I will go and ask the manager of our control room to check for all calls for the entire weekend that may have come in about a burglary at that school. But as far as I know we don’t ignore any call whether it’s a prank or about information and I’m certain that if that call came in it would have had police response. Definitely would have.”
