We reported on two Belzie City murders yesterday, but major crime for 2012 continues to be very much down compared to 2012. Up to the end of October in 2012, we had already recorded 119 murders at the end of October, but for that same period this year there were 88 murders. Robbery is also down sharply from 413 for this period last year to 236 for the same period this year. Theft though has increase to 845 cases from 777 up to the end of October last year. Today Police minister,. John Saldivar, presented his Monthly Awards for best performance in reducing major crimes to an area thatís usually the crime hotspot, The Eastern Zone, headed by Assistant Commissioner of Police Miguel Segura. Eastern saw the greatest reduction in major crimes for October, with Precinct 2 performing the best in that area. Assistant Commissioner Segura received a Cheque of $1,000 dolalrs for the outstanding performance by his zone, and a Certificate of Recognition on behalf of Superintendent Alford Grinage who commands Precinct 2.

Crime stats: major crimes up in August and September, but down in October

Crime statistics for the months of August, September and October have been released by the Belize Police Department, reflecting a decline in the number of homicides over the past three months. A total of five murders were recorded during that period, twenty-four cases of burglary and three cases of carnal knowledge. There were thirty-three cases of theft reported during that quarter, as well as ten cases of robbery. Comparatively speaking, there has been a decrease in the number of major crimes committed during the month of October. In August that figure was at a hundred and fourteen, in September one hundred and eleven and seventy-three last month. Those numbers were considerably higher during the same period in 2012.

Murder is certainly decreased and we feel due to 3 events-Arthur Young shooting Pinky Tillet; what is widely believed to be the state sanctioned murder of Arthur Young and the 4 people brutally slain on George St, believed to be a message from cartel to Belize gangs to chill so as not to interfere with cartel cargo biz. All in Belize City.
