The San Pedro Sun
Electric Scooters operating without the approval of San Pedro’s Traffic Department
Motorized scooters have become a popular mode of transportation attracting the youth in San Pedro Town. These powered stand-up scooters use a small electric motor, and its design and speed allows users to quickly slide through traffic. This new means of transportation is beginning to cause problems with the already congested traffic situation on the island and islanders are concerned about the dangers these vehicles pose. Not only is the general public against it, but the San Pedro Traffic Department (SPTD) as well. The SPTD stated that they do not agree with the powered stand-up scooters and that they never issued any permits for their usage on the island.
Brandon Humes gunned down in San Pedro Town
The incident happened on one of the busiest streets of town, causing a major traffic jam while police processed the scene. The shooting took place on the second floor of an apartment building, and according to the police report, the chain of events leading to Humes’ murder started as early as 8AM. The report states that when police arrived at the scene around 9AM, a Jose Flores told them that earlier in the morning, he had been visited by a male and female familiar to him. Shortly after, Flores and the female person left his apartment leaving Humes in the apartment. Sometime after, Flores was notified that there had been a shooting at his place. When they went back to the apartment, they found Humes in a seated position with what appeared to be gunshot wounds.
San Pedro Shooting
San Pedro Police have confirmed the death of a male person following a shooting incident at an apartment complex on Coconut Drive, across from the San Pedro Roman Catholic Primary School. While details are yet to be made available, initial information is revealing that the incident occurred sometime after 9AM on Thursday, May 2nd. Officials are currently processing the scene and believed to be searching for two suspects. The San Pedro Sun will continue following this developing story.

San Pedro Pirates win first PLB semifinals game
For the first round of the Premiere League of Belize (PLB) 2019 Closing Season semifinals playoffs, the San Pedro Pirates traveled to Belize City to face their opponent, Belize Defense Force (BDF) F.C on Sunday, April 28th. A victory would bring one team closer to the PLB finals, and both teams badly wanted the win. At the end of the game time, the San Pedro Pirates team managed to emerge victorious with a 1-0 score. To still be in the run for the PLB championship, BDF will have to win 2-0 in this week’s upcoming match against San Pedro Pirates. The other semifinals match saw Belmopan Bandits coming out victorious with a 3-4 score point over Verdes F.C. To win Verdes F.C must put up a 2-point lead as well.
I'll See You At Fido’s
His name is Wilfrido Nuñez but everyone got to call him Fido. He is perhaps the most mentioned name in San Pedro and even after his death, his name is mentioned daily by hundreds of locals and tourists when they say, "I'll meet you at Fido's".
Wilfrido Nuñez was born to Francisco Nuñez and Isabel Castillo Nuñez. His siblings include Victoria Villanueva (+), Guadalupe Nuñez (+), Erdulfo Nuñez and Frank Nuñez. Fido Nuñez’s mom and dad as well as his brothers lived partly in San Pedro and later on in Belize City. However, Fido was born in San Pedro and lived his entire life here. He is one of the few San Pedranos from the 1930's through 50's that did not grow up as a fisherman.
Morning Fatal Shooting Across RC School
A resident of an apartment building, located across from the San Pedro Roman Catholic School, came across a handgun on the front steps of her resident as she came out to investigate the sounds of gunfire. At the same time, a second resident of the apartment building discovered a male lying in a pool of blood in front of his apartment located on the second floor. This shooting incident took place this morning, Thursday, May 2, 2019, at about 9a.m. Police are currently on the look out for one or two individuals who are believed to be involved in this daylight crime. More information to be posted as it becomes available to us.

Labour Day Violence Leaves Two Dead
After a period of relative calm, violence spiked over the labour day holiday, and tonight there are three murders to report.
We start on the Hummingbird Highway where a 24 year old Steadfast villager was murdered yesterday evening around 5:30.
Alberto Requena was heading to his home in the village when a group of men attacked him and stabbed him multiple times. Requena tried to ride off on his bicycle to get away but he collapsed on the side of the Hummingbird Highway. A boy who passed by later in the evening saw Requena's body and alerted his family. Courtney Weatherburne has more.
Police Detain One For Steadfast Murder
And police may be able to deliver the justice the Requena family is asking for sooner rather than later. Today at the press briefing, Head of the National Crimes Investigation Branch Joseph Myvette told us they have a person in custody. Here's more.
ACP Joseph Myvette - Head NCIB:
"Also, on yesterday's date, sometime around 6:40 p.m., Dangriga police was called to an area between miles 15 and 16 on the Stann Creek Valley Road, where they observed a male Hispanic person, lying in a drain apparently motionless..."
First City Murder In Almost Three Weeks Is BDF Volunteer & Family Man
And from Stann Creek to Belize City - Labour Day witnessed the first killing in the city in almost three weeks. The victim this time was BDF volunteer, 30 year-old Hamed Guzman - in what friends say is almost surely a case of mistaken identity.
Sometime after 8:00, residents of Lopez Street, which is a short distance away from the CB Hyde Complex on Mahogany Street, heard the report of 6 or 7 gunshots outside their doors. When they went out to investigate, they found Guzman on the ground bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds.
Broad Daylight Execution In San Pedro
And the third murder which we're reporting on tonight happened this morning on San Pedro.
Around 9:00, as many as a dozen shots were heard at the Arceo apartment on Coconut Drive, which is not far from the RC School.
18 year old Brandon Humes, who is from the Yabra area of Belize City and doesn't live there - was found dead in a second floor apartment, his body riddled with 9 gunshots.
The man who does live in the apartment, Jose Flores told police that an hour before the murder, a man he knew, and the man's mother came to visit him. The man reportedly begged Flores to allow him to stay at his house.
Mother of Slain Teen Tries to Piece Together His Murder
We spoke to Humes' mother off camera late this evening. Maria Hamilton got the terrible news around midday today from a friend over a phone call. She was at work and had no idea that her son had been executed. Hamilton says she had to call police to find out more information. She told us this evening that she has no idea why her son was killed. Here is what she had to say.
Humes' body will be sent to Belize City tomorrow for the post mortem.
Man Escapes Death In Point Blank Shooting
So far tonight - we've already told you about three murder - but there could have been another - and only luck has a 35 year-old mechanic alive tonight. Surveillance video seen here, shows the Neal's Pen Road resident standing in front of a residence at #18 Seagull Street.
That was at around 8:10 p.m., and as you can see, he was leaning up on the back of this vehicle reviewing something on his cell phone. He didn't even see A young gunman, wearing a cap, and a black shirt pulling up on bicycle, until the shooter was right in front of him. That assailant pulled out a gun from his pants waist, and fired a shot at close range. You can see thew target dashing away, as the shooter fires 2 more bullets at him, before hastily riding off and escaping.
Lady Cops with Dreadlocks - Compol Brings Them Up On Charges
6 Women police officers were brought up on disciplinary charges for their hairstyles. They all wear their hair natural, some of them in cornrows and braids - but the police senior command said the style contravenes Section 7 of the Police Standing Orders.
So they were charged for willfully disobeying a lawful command - but 6 of them bonded together and vowed to fight the charges. They are ASP Irma Anderson, Sgt. Chrsitine Avila, Corporal Marva Grinage, WPC's Vanessa Kerr, Shantel Berry and Alleya Wade.
Lady Cops' Lawyer Says Police Command Is Showing Prejudice
And while that is the police department's case - all 6 police officers have lawyered up to challenge the department. Three of them have retained attorney Leslie Mendez. She responded to ACP Magdaleno's claims today:
Leslie Mendez, Attorney, 3 police officers:
"It's not as clear-cut as it was posed before where you could have seen that you could have easily found a rule that says that locks were prohibited. Now secondly, our position is that that interpretation is wrong and that locks are not included in the rules as framed now. But even if they are included and even if we have a court that says well elaborate head decoration does include locks. What we say is that this has significant constitutional rights implications and we say that such a policy and such a rule would be breaching the constitutional rights of these officers, specifically in respect to their freedom of conscience, freedom of expression and protection against anti-discrimination."
COMPOL Backtracks on Dreadlocks Directive
And, so while the attorneys, Leslie Mendez and Anthony Sylvester are ready to make a constitutional challenge - it seems Commissioner Chester had made the rarest of decisions: he has decided that this is a fight he doesn't need.
In a surprising about-turn - Williams issued a statement this evening, syaing, quote,
"...having discussed the matter with my senior management team, we have decided to submit the matter to the Solicitor General for a legal opinion. This means that the disciplinary hearing against them will be put on hold pending that opinion. This is being done in the interest of fairness to the officers as well as to ensure the department does not incur unnecessary expense or waste time in court fighting something that (it) may be able to resolve otherwise." End quote.
Women Left Stranded After Kidnapping and Carjacking
Tonight, 2 women are recovering from from what they say was a terrifying ordeal after 3 men reportedly kidnapped them on Tuesday night at Mile 8 on the George Price Highway. The men then reportedly stole their vehicle, and drove them up to Armenia Village in the Cayo District, tied them up, and left them in the bushes at on the side of the Hummingbird highway, in the darkness.
28 year-old Cynthia Ulloa, a resident of Sun Set Park, located at mile 8 on the George Price Highway, reported to police that she was inside her Toyota Land Cruiser SUV.
Man Guilty of Murder
Tonight, 26 year-old Tevin Andrewin is at the Belize Central Prison awaiting sentencing, after he was convicted of murder in a trial without without jury by Justice Marilyn Williams. The judge found him guilty of the 2012 murder of 19 year-old Myrick Gladden
Crown Counsel Sherigne Rodriguez prosecuted, and she called Gladden's common-law wife to testify at the main witness. She told the court that at around on June 24, 2012, she and Gladden were walking on "Complex" Street, when she heard 3 gunshots. She was shot in the calf and turned around to see the gunman, and Gladden on the ground.
Lennox Lamb Left Off List
Lennox Lamb is a student of politics, and an activist - and so when re-registration started in July, he was there to re-register on day one.
With that early re-registration in Caribbean Shores, he was sure all was in order for the May eighth referendum. But, when he went to make a check on Tuesday - he got a most unexpected surprise: he wasn't on the list.
Lamb told us what happened next.
Lennox Lamb, Re-registration Application Lost:
"June 2nd I went to register, like I normally do. I want to be the first one to register..."
Can't Vote With Pens
We asked the Elections and Boundaries office for comment on Lamb's case today - and we are still waiting on a response.
But, on Tuesday, the E & B office did comment on a matter of public interest. Leaders of The Belize Peace Movement say they want to vote with pens - or possibly even punch the ballot with a hole to make their vote indelible and unequivocal.
The Chief Elections Officer says that's a no-go:...
NAVCO Says Yes To ICJ
In one more bit of referendum news, the National Association of Village Councils which represents over 200 villages countrywide comprising 55 percent of the population has declared a position on the ICJ vote.

Police told us today that 23 year-old Malique Stuart was simply walking though that area when he was attacked by 3 men who stabbed him several times:
ACP Joseph Myvette - Head NCIB:
"On Monday sometime around 4pm police responded to an information of a stabbing incident in Majestic Alley where upon arrival a male person was seen with several stab wounds.

Domestic Stabbing in Belmopan
Tonight, police continue to search for a Belmopan man after his common-law wife reported that he attacked and stabbed her at her job site on Sunday.
The victim, Alba Chavez, reported to police that she was on her work shift in the San Martin Area of Belmopan, when her common-law husband came at her with a knife and stabbed her several times.
Here's what police had to say about the case:
ACP Joseph Myvette - Head NCIB:
"On Sunday, shortly before midnight, Belmopan police responded to an information of a stabbing victim at the Western Regional Hospital. Upon arrival, they observed a Hispanic female, later identified as Alba Chavez, with several stab wounds..."
Protest For Lower Cost Of Living
Tomorrow, Moses Sulph and the Belize Leaders For Social Justice are taking to the city streets to demonstrate against the high cost of living and the low minimum wage for working people. He told us why you should support the protest tomorrow:..
PUC Gives BEL Modest Increase
And speaking of the high cost of living, BEL asked the PUC to keeps rates, fixed, but the PUC says it should go up just a little.
On April 30, 2019, The Public Utilities Commission made its Initial Decision on the 2018 Annual Review Proceeding for Belize Electricity Limited.
BEL proposed no adjustments to the currently approved Mean Electricity Rate but the "PUC puts it at 41.51¢ per kilowatt-an increase of some 0.4%, which has no impact on currently approved tariffs."

Ice age bear and wolf-like creature found in Quintana Roo’s underwater cave
Belizean bears! ... Okay, a fossil bear next door to Belize, but these great creatures must have roamed Belize too in prehistoric times.
Divers excavating an underwater cave in Mexico have discovered the bones of giant meat eaters that lived there during the last ice age, a new study reported.
The finding is remarkable, because few ancient animal remains survive in Mexico’s hot, tropical climate. But these ancient beasts, the short-faced bear (Arctotherium wingei) and the wolf-like Protocyon troglodytes, fell to their deaths in a deep cave, which was flooded soon after. As a result, their bones were preserved in pristine condition, the researchers said.
Both of these species were far from what scientists had considered the animals’ homes. Previously, the creatures were known only from South America. This finding shows that they also lived much farther north, or more than 1,200 miles (2,000 kilometers) away from their known habitat, about the distance from Boston to Miami.
