Over the weekend Orange Walk Police were busy conducting several investigations surrounding separate burglary and robbery incidences that have resulted in the arrest of several men. The first arrest was made possible through the swift response of the Quick Response Team. According to 65 year old Angel Maldonado, Salvadoran National, Belizean resident and watchman of Camp 22 in the community of Shipyard in the Orange Walk District, on Friday November 13th, he was at a ranch belonging to Jacobo Wall, Belizean Mennonite of Shipyard Village, fixing a gate when two men approached him asking for water.
Maldonado alleges that shortly after drinking the water, both individuals attacked him and threatened to kill him with a machete. One of the culprits then threw Maldonado to the ground whilst the second placed the point of the machete on his chest.
The victim further reported that one of the culprits then went inside the house and took a shotgun that belonged to Wall. The assailants then took Maldonado’s cell phone and his blue Meilun Motorcycle and before they left they wanted to kill but according to the victim, he pled for his life and luckily it was speared.
The good news is that swift response by the Quick Response Team led to the recovery of the stolen items which were found in the Village of San Felipe on the same day of the attack. Police were also able to detain Gudiel Madrid and Alex Chan who are both residents of August Pine Ridge Village and Israel Olivera who is a resident of San Felipe Village for the crime.
All three persons have since been arrested and charged for the crimes of aggravated burglary, robbery, aggravated assault, handling stolen goods and kept unlicensed firearm. Police report that the three individuals are being investigated for a series of burglaries in August Pine Ridge, San Felipe and Shipyard in the Orange Walk District.
