By Aaron Humes: On Friday personnel from the Police Quick Response Team were conducting a vehicle check point in Ontario Village, when a maroon Toyota Rav4 SUV with Belmopan license plates ran the checkpoint with three occupants.
Police pursued the vehicle and it came to a stop within Ontario Village.
One man was seen running out from the rear passenger side door of the vehicle and he escaped. However, he dropped a .22 Pietro Beretta pistol which contained (1).22 live round in the chamber and (2).22 rounds in the magazine.
Police have since detained the two other occupants, 25-year-old Lincoln Bejerano and a 17-year-old female both of Belmopan pending investigation. Police are looking for Edwardo Santamaria to assist in the investigation.
