Efrain-Alpuche-500x322Efrain Alpuche and Saulito Vasquez have been released of all charges and accusations in the burning of BSI sugar cane fields. 20 acres, or about 700 tons, worth approximately $50,000 of the company’s sugar cane were set ablaze in a case of suspected arson on Monday May 18th at around 5:00 p.m. on the San Lorenzo Road.

 

Velasquez and Alpuche were arrested almost immediately and appeared in court on May 22nd on a single count of arson. No plea was taken and the men were offered, and later met bail of $40,000 each. Today however, we understand that upon the directive of the Director of Public Prosecution, the case was dismissed in court for a lack of sufficient evidence. The men have been freed of all charges.
