Assistant Superintendent of Police Mr. Luis Castellanos and the San Pedro Police Department have been getting high praises from the San Pedro Town Council and Neighborhood Watch presidents this week as the department has proven to have effectively decreased crime on the island. In his report to Mayor Daniel Guerrero, ASP Castellanos indicated that Ambergris Caye saw fewer crimes in the month of July over the past couple of months. Crime is going down even during the slow season, something that Castellanos attributes to more ‘Stop and Search’ of suspicious characters on the streets and beach patrol that swept off unwanted loiterers, peddlers and vagrants. “These have been very effective in our fight against crime,” commented ASP Castellanos. “Just in July my officers logged 249 searches on people.” The department’s law enforcement response report includes 100 mobile patrols, 20 foot patrols, 45 house searches and 10 arrests.

So they have done 45 house searches and only made 10 arrests ???
They must be just searching and hopping to find something, and not having good information to do a search. That makes me feel REAL good.
