San Pedro Police investigation has led to the detention of four men after an incident regarding arson and damage to property. The men have been identified as Abendigo Rochez, Elroy Williams, Daniel Tzib and Armando Escalon. The incident occurred on Tuesday, June 3rd at about 1:30AM at Coral Reef Villas, located on Seagrape Drive. According to police investigation, the culprits had not only attempted to burn the apartment unit of Edwin Maradiaga, but had also vandalized the unit.

Initial investigation revealed that Maradiaga was awoken by knocking on the door of his apartment. When he looked outside his bedroom window, he saw two men on his verandah. Maradiaga stepped into the hallway of the apartment to further check what was going on. His roommate, Rafael Mazier had also come out of his room after hearing the knocking. Maradiaga decided to call the police and while on the phone, bottles were thrown through his bedroom window breaking the glass. The two men moved to the south side of the apartment to take cover and noticed that a red golf cart was rapidly driving in a southern direction.

About 20 minutes later the red golf cart returned and was parked in front of the apartment building. More bottles were being thrown at the window after which the golf cart left once again. At around 2:30AM the golf cart returned and someone on the cart threw something through the window which exploded in Maradiaga bedroom. Maradiaga and Mazier went to check what had happened, but they only saw that the hallway was engulfed in smoke. They quickly asked for assistance from the neighbors, who helped extinguish the fire with water. The fire had damaged the one mattress, one bed frame, one chest of drawers and three ceiling fans, all belonging to the landlord. The total damage to the apartment amounted to $2,000BZ.

Wow....20 minutes after calling the police and they still aren't there? It's such a tiny place! The people doing the damage must have not been too afraid of the police to have returned to do more damage. So sad.

You read what you want to read. How do you know that the police weren't out looking for the culprits in the area when they returned a second time? The fact is that they caught them.

Yes they did. Temporary relief no doubt. It continues to baffle me why people act this way over revenge, petty jealous, perception of disrespect. Ridiculous behaviour in teenages but on what are supposed to be adults . . .baffling simply baffling.
