Thursday, May 15, 2014.AARON HUMES Reporting: A naturalized Belizean who is reportedly wanted in Ecuador for murder has been picked up – and as a bonus, police recovered an unlicensed firearm at his property.
39 year old businessman Christian Ebanks appeared before Magistrate Dale Cayetano today where he pleaded not guilty to keeping a firearm without a gun license.
Officers of the Gang Suppression Unit (GSU) visited Ebanks’ residence on Teacher Street Extension in West Landivar around 12:30 p.m. and upon searching the house found a chrome 9mm handgun with black pistol grip in a plastic bag hidden inside the lower portion of a stove in the kitchen.
Ebanks will return to court on July 21, but local authorities intend to check into his background to see if he is in fact wanted fugitive Floyd Wendel Ebanks Jurado, who, according to a 2011 web posting, is being sought in the Guayas Province of Ecuador for the murder of Ecuadoran Alejandro Martín Teófilo, which happened on Puna Island.
