San Pedro businessman thought to be US fugitive arrested

A local businessman, one Ricardo Caveras, general manager of the Ambergris Caye office of Coldwell Banker Real Estate, was arrested today by San Pedro police, along with officers from the police department in Lower Southampton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. and the U.S. Embassy.

Caveras, alias Richard D. Cover, Jr., is wanted in Pennsylvania for parole violation, security fraud and other fraud related cases under that name, in addition to pending investigations on other fraud cases.

A detective from Lower Southampton, who identified Caveras and alerted the FBI in Pennsylvania, told our island source that, “Cover is a number one scumball who has ripped off many people’s life savings.”

Caveras is also said to have lived in Panama under the name “R.J. Erwin” and in Costa Rica under another alias before coming to Belize. He had been living and working in San Pedro since last year.

He is also said to be being investigated for bigamy, supposedly for having one wife in Belize with one child, and another in the U.S. with whom he has triplets and another child for a total of four children in the US.

The accused businessman has said that he is a Belizean citizen, born in Orange Walk to a Belizean mother who migrated to the U.S. shortly after his birth, but he is said to have entered Belize on a U.S. passport and said nothing about having Belizean citizenship.

American fugitive gets a tan and handcuffs on La Isla Bonita

Ricardo Caveras

An American fugitive was arrested in San Pedro on October eighteenth. According to our friends at [#%!].com, Ricardo Caveras was arrested during a joint operation between the San Pedro Police Department and the security officer from the U.S. Embassy. Apparently, Caveras has different arrests warrants pending in the United States under different aliases. While using the name Richard D. Cover Jr., Caveras has racked up warrants for parole violation, security fraud and other fraud related cases. Prior to coming to San Pedro, Caveras lived in Panama and Costa Rica under different aliases including R.J. Erwin. Caveras has only been living in Belize for one year, and it seems that he has been quite busy. He found a job as Property Manager and as General Manager for Coldwell Banker Real Estate on Ambergris Caye. He may have added one more crime to his list, and the latest one is for bigamy. Apparently Caveras, in twelve months, has fallen in love, gotten married and became a father while he is still married to a woman in the U.S. with whom he has four children, including triplets. Caveras also claims to be a Belizean Citizen who was born in Orange Walk. But Pennsylvania police say his mother has never visited Belize.

This is terrible, things like this could reflect on the high standards of the real-estate sales profession in Belize.

Makes you wonder how he got his paperwork - work permit, etc. It sure isn't easy if you are legit!

If we sent photos of all the American and Canadian Realtors and developers to the FBI and Canadian Security Intelligence Service it could help? :-)

"FBI and Canadian Security Intelligence Service"

More like Homeland Security: http://www.csis-scrs.gc.ca/bts/rlfcss-eng.asp

RCMP is the equivalent of the FBI.
