According to the alleged victim, Thyrell Hyde of Belize City, the incident played out sometime in the month of September. Hyde reports that he and a group of friends were sitting inside his vehicle which was parked in the vicinity of the Buttonwood Bay Park when they were surprised by a group of police officers who were on patrol at the time. The group, according to Hyde, was searched by the officers and that is when the situation got out of control.

“They searched me and my friend, they remove seventy dollars from my pocket, my keys, my cellphone and they took those from my friend also his keys and cellphone too and while they were searching us two other officers were searching the car and so I notice they had remove a manila envelope that I had in the glove compartment of the car, I had everything that it had to do with my contracts, copies of cheques and stuff like that and then the other officer proceeded to check the trunk and so I had my kick bag in there also and after they search that well they told me that they were going to take me to the station and so I asked him if I don’t smoke, I don’t drink and they haven’t found anything illegal what is the reason they will take me to the station and so the police man looked at me and he told but you could help yourself and I told what you mean and I told him well if money you guys want well you done take it from my pocket and whilst searching one of them found my ATM card  and he told well we have the card here and so the two officer got into my car and drove me to the ATM machine and so they went to Atlantic Bank by the flag monument in Belize City and they ordered me to follow them into the ATM and they took out two hundred and fifty.”

 

According to Hyde, immediately after the incident, he filed an official complaint at the Belize City Police Department and was assured that an investigation would be carried out. When he visited the department for the second time, he was informed that the accused police officers had been identified and an ID parade was to be conducted very soon. However, that never happened, hence the reason why Hyde decided to go public.
