While Cervantes has disassociated himself from having anything to do with the burning of BSI/ASR cane fields, it’s been a little over twenty four hours that his driver and another individual said to be from San Roman Rio Hondo are behind bars pending the outcome of police investigations into the matter.
While no official police report has been released to the media, our sources at the Orange Walk Police Department reveal that a report provided by the watchmen of BSI/ASR indicates that they were in the area when they spotted a blue four door pickup circulating the area.
At some point the vehicle drove into the cane fields, stopped and one man excited the vehicle and started setting fire to the cane fields. Reports are that there were two persons in the vehicle, the driver and the individual setting the fields on fire. The watchmen added that when the men found out they were spotted shots were fired at their direction.
The watchmen then retrieved from the area, reported the matter to police and requested assistance. Police response was swift since they managed to intercept the blue vehicle on the Yo Creek Road. So far no charges have been levied on any of the men detained. Police say if they cannot charge the men, they will be released after 48 hours of being detained. But our sources are telling us that they have some type of evidence linked to the case. We’ll keep following this story and bring you the developments as they unfold.
