Another American Fugitive has been captured in Belize this time all the way down South in Punta Gorda Town.
American burglar and fugitive Timothy Ray Veasey was busted in Punta Gorda on Thursday October 31st after Police and officers of the Special Branch Unit visited the second floor of a two story building located at Alejandro Street Punta Gorda Town.
According to reports, in May of 2013 Police found the 48 year old, of Baltimore, inside a Linthicum home after a resident reported a burglary-in-progress. This is after shortly after 2:00p.m., police responded to a residence on the 6500 block of Englewood Road for the reported burglary, and a woman told police she heard someone enter her home from the roof.
The woman fled the house and called police from her neighbor's house. The woman said no other residents were inside the home, so police created a perimeter and entered the home. Police eventually saw Veasey open a lower floor basement door and begin to crawl up the stairs. Officers attempted to detain Veasey, but he allegedly attempted to flee and resisted arrest. That is when officers used the taser on Veasey.
Police found several items stolen from the home in Veasey's possession and charged him with burglary, theft and resisting arrest. Reports are that Veasey, who was also being investigated for other burglaries in the area, was out on bail when he absconded to Belize.
