After drifting ashore on Ambergris Caye, Jamaicans eager to get home
After landing on the shores of Ambergris Caye on Thursday, July 19th, three Jamaican Nationals remain stranded in Belize and hope to return home soon. The trio, 50-year-old Noel Samuels, 23-year-old Romeo Lewis and 44-year-old Karma Beckford spent eight additional days in San Pedro Town, housed at the international boat terminal behind the Honourable Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex. They are desperate to get temporary travel documents to return to Jamaica and say they have received little assistance from Immigration authorities or the Honorary Consulate of Jamaica in Belize. The San Pedro Sun was informed by the Jamaican Consulate on Thursday, July 26th, that getting the travel documents will take a few more days. However, after arriving in Belmopan, they would take care of the trio until they are able to travel.

Safe Wildlife Tourism Encounters
In the past months, the Belize Forest Department has received alarming reports of crocodiles being directly and indirectly fed as well as being molested for purposes of tourism attraction. The direct and indirect feeding of crocodiles is a dangerous practice as it increases the risk of crocodiles becoming accustomed to human interactions and relating people with food. This can result in unfortunate injuries to humans or domestic animals. Indirect feeding of crocodiles includes practices such as throwing food scraps or any other form of garbage in areas where crocodiles are known to be present.

Stopped to Help Him Get Out Of The Mud, Got Him Into A Grave
44 year old Samuel Cosme was found dead early on Monday morning. He was killed by multiple stab wounds, his body lying next to his vehicle at mile five and half on the Northern Highway. Tonight police have charged the man who they believe killed the Honduran Construction worker who lived in the Gungulung area. He is 33 year old Reainard Randey Ferguson from Neal Penn Road. Today police told us it was a crime of opportunity as the suspect came upon Cosme and a female companion when they needed help to get his Ranger pickup out of the mud:

Brian Brown Arrested For Death Threat To Mom, Causes Commotion
Notorious George Street figure Brian Brown is in police custody tonight pending threat of death and other charges. He's accused of threatening to kill his own mother. But it wasn't easy detaining him - this morning after 11:00, Brown and those in his well fortified compound put up a fight. That caused a huge commotion on Jimmy Dyer Street which is off Faber's Road Extension. Now the residents and police have very different versions of what happened. We start off with the Brown's disgruntled common law wife as she explains how police dragged her and Brown down the stairs. She also shared a short video which you will see in the interview. It shows her on top of the roof asking the police why they want to detain Brown. Here is her side of the story.

Police Say It Was a Textbook Detention
Well, the police have a different take on the entire ordeal. They say they played it by the books against belligerent residents. Today at the weekly police press briefing, Commander of Operations Chester Williams detailed the police's version of events and applauded the cops for finally bringing Brown into custody. DCP Chester Williams, Commander - Operations: "The police received a complaint from the mother of Mr. Brian Brown and we had been in search of him for the past two days.."

Moving Forward With the Lessons Learned from Baby Etana
And while the Brian Brown arrest dominated today's news - what's more pressing for police is keeping the peace on Gill Street - where 3 year old Baby Etana Bennett was killed on Sunday morning and Eric Tillett was shot on Tuesday night. Etana was shot to her temple as she slept with her parents, an especially ruthless and indiscriminate killing - and Williams says it is deeply hurtful to him personally and a call to action for the security forces:...

Police Have Teenaged Suspect For Shooting Eric
And while Baby Etana was killed on Sunday morning on Gill Street - by Tuesday night, there was another shooting, this time it was 26 year-old Eric Tillett. Police had already set up a checkpoint on Gill Street, but that was still no deterrent for a gunman who hid in the bush out of the police's sight, and ambushed Tillett and his girlfriend when they arrived at their Gill Street home. As we reported, they pulled up at around 8:30 on Tillett's motorcycle. They were about to enter their yard, when the gunman burst out of the abandoned lot next door, and fired a single shot at Tillett, injuring him him to the left calf.

Sharp Cops Caught A Gunman On a Downtown Move
Alert police work may have thwarted another broad daylight armed robbery in downtown Belize City today. Williams told us how police tracked down a suspicious character and found a gun on Orange street:... DCP Chester Williams, Commander - Operations: "This morning the police were able to recover one firearm off the streets that occurred in Albert Street area. Police were in pursuit of a person who was seen looking suspiciously and the person managed to elude the police and when police searched an area, they came across one 9mm pistol..."

50 Years Later, Hon. Boots Finds The Woman Who Saved Him From Perishing In Fire
Anthony Boots Martinez tuned 55 a few days ago on July 15th - and he said that standard retirement age also marks the date of his retirement from electoral politics. We'll wait and see what that really means on the ground - but it suggests that he was in a reflective frame of mind this morning when he got a most unexpected call from his ministerial colleague, Beverly Williams. She told the honorable Boots that she has a lady he just had to talk to. We accompanied him on the trip to meet the remarkable Sonya Austin. Jules Vasquez reports on the moving reunion:... Jules Vasquez reporting: This is the public Boots Martinez you may be used to - brash, intemperate, argumentative. But this morning, this elderly Ladyville resident and our cameras saw something we hadn't seen before, a tender and thankful side of Boots - and, yes, behind those glasses, there were real tears.

Hon. Bev Filled In The Blanks
And Martinez has his colleague Beverly Williams to thank for the reunion. She's the matchmaker who filled in a 50 year gap in information with a phone call this morning. She told us how it went:.. Hon. Beverly Williams: "Miss Sonia visited me last week, as most constituents do and I was speaking to her and she kinda told me. She asked me not to say anything. She didn't want to appear like an exploiter. Somehow I just blurted it out. I thought it was something that Minister [Boots] should know and I didn't know it was going to have this effect, but I'm glad that Minister has closure as he says and that Miss Sonia finally met Minister."

Modiri and Paumen Back In Court
The dispute between the Franks Eddy neighbors Bradley Paumen and Michael Modiri hasn't made the evening news for some time, but they're back at it tonight. That's because Modiri has gone back to the Supreme Court to try and collect on the 300 thousand-dollar-award that Justice Shona Griffith says Paumen owes him. You may recall that these 2 landowners are landlocked, and they can't get access to their respective properties without stepping on each other's toes. That's a big problem for Modiri, since Paumen was running his million-dollar cruise tourism operation, Dark Night through Modiri's land.

Municipal Bus Dispute Goes to Court
2 weeks ago, we told you about the letter that attorney Godwin Haylock wrote to the Belize City Council. His father, the owner of Haylock's Bus Service, wants Mayor Bernard Wagner and his administration to rescind the "permit" that City Hall gave to bus owner Phillip Jones, to run the Belama to Belize City route. Haylock's Bus Service is the only company that has a road service permit to carry passengers between Belama and Belize City. That was granted by the Transport Board, which attorney Godwin Haylock asserts is the only body which can give permits to bus operators. Haylock's bus insists that the permit that City Hall gave to Phillip Jones is unlawful.

Police Caught Three robbers, Shot Two Of Them, Got Two Guns
And, before we got to break - we have an update on the police operation ongoing right now in the Lord's Ridge Cemetery. Police have foiled the robbery of a security firm on Antelope street. Apparently, it happened right near the Operation ACT caravan, and the police were quick to respond. They followed the three suspects into the Lord's Ridge Cemetery where two of them were shot in the legs - and all three are detained. Two guns stolen from the security operations - both 38 revolvers - have been recovered. Police remain in the cemetery at this hour gathering evidence.

Top Cop Teaches Tailoring
The Department of Youth Services is hosting a 6 week training program at the Yabra Community Center where they are teaching young men and women in the community a set of different crafts like sewing, cosmetics, expressive arts, barbering and information technology. All this with the ultimate aim of making them more financially independent. Communications Officer for the Department of Youth Services Renata Samuels told us more about the cosmetics aspect of the summer program. The police department also chipped in to support the program. They donated sewing machines and provided a teacher.

Girl Guides Summer in Mesop.
Today the Girl Guide's Association of Belize in collaboration with the Scouts Association and the St. Ignatius Church culminated a three week summer program aimed at teaching entrepreneurial skills to kids between the ages of 6 to 13 years. Over 11 schools were represented in the summer program that was held at St. Ignatius Primary School in Belize City. Today the program closed off with a children's business fair, where the kids got to put into practice the knowledge they gained during the summer program.

What Is Moya Doing in Mesop?
And she's not just the girl guides guru, former Belize City Mayor Moya has recently been raising eyebrows with reports that she has a political interest in the Mesopotamia division. But, it's going to be tough since Moya is now UDP persona non grata - and the PUP seem to have no interest in her as a candidate. So what's she doing in Mesopotamia? Today we caught up with her at the children's business fair and asked if this event was a preview of her political campaign. Here's what she had to say:

Restore Belize, Making Parks Peaceful
"A Belize that is safe for children," that is the theme under which Restore Belize hopes to host this Saturday's Peace in the Park event at Yarborough Green. It is an event organized as part of Restore Belize's ongoing efforts to make vulnerable places in the community safer to live. We learnt more from Communications Officer for Restore Belize Robin Schaffer.

Taximan Chopping Was Cabbie Confrontation
Police have finally gotten a complaint from the taxi-man who was chopped up by one of his fellow cab drivers. It happened two days ago in front of the Ocean Ferry Water Taxi. Police said it was a typical cab driver dispute:... ASP Alejandro Cowo: "There was a chopping incident earlier that Tuesday, just about 3:30. The matter was just reported to the police a while ago, hence the reason that your request was not met because the guy finally visited the station a while ago and made a report. He was Mr. Gerald Lewis. He was at North Front Street Ocean Ferry taxi stand when he had a dispute with another taxi operator..."

Cops Don’t Know who Was Driving Corolla
Police say they don't know who was driving the Toyota Corrolla that crashed on the San Antonio road two days ago and killed two brothers, Jamie and Anthony Archer from Forest Home. Two other men were in the car and they are both critical. Police told us today that samples have been taken:... ACP Joseph Myvett: "So far the police are unable to determine who the driver is, as the other two occupants, Darian Romero and Jerry Cruz both remain in critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital."

Cops Lock Down Cemetery
The police department - including operations commander Chester Williams are finishing with the processing of a crime scene in the Lord Ridge Cemetery at this hour. As we told you, the police caught three men who had just robbed a security firm on Antelope Street. They shot two of the suspects in their legs and another had been detained. Two guns - both 38 revolvers - were recovered. We'll have more on this tomorrow.

Is Disruption of Marijuana Trade Fueling Robberies?
And so those criminals allegedly stole two guns after police took three off the city streets in the past two days. And that's the way it goes, it seems that every action by the police has an equal and opposite reaction from the criminal element. Our information suggests that's what's been happening with big marijuana busts on the police side, and a spike in business robberies on the criminal side. You might not know it, but marijuana sales fuel the underground economy - and when the supply is disrupted, those who live outside the law become desperate. We asked Deputy Williams about it:…
