ow_policePolice are still looking for one man in connection to the firearm and ammunition bust made last Saturday morning. They have charged Jamal Tablada and Jared Usher both residents of Belize City for possession of prohibited firearm and unlicensed prohibited ammunition.


A seventeen year old who was along with the men was also charged for the same crimes. The bust occurred along the Phillip Goldson Highway as authorities mobilized to set check points in response to a home invasion that was reported earlier in the night. Police report that they observed a black rodeo SUV with Belize City license plates parked at the side of the road facing Belize City.


When officers came closer, they noticed one of the occupants was kneeling behind the vehicle and officers also recognized one of the men as being a member of the George Street gang in Belize City. Police detained the individual and two more persons who were inside the vehicle. A search revealed that the men carried with them a sawed off shotgun loaded with one cartridge. They also found five point five-six milimeter rounds of ammunition on Jared Usher.

Police arrested the three persons, among them the minor of seventeen years. Police indicate that there was a fourth person along with the group but he managed to escape. Authorities however have identified that person and are now looking for him. The three are still in Police custody pending arraignment.
