By Chrisbert Garcia: Two men escaped gun charges last week in Belize City after throwing away a nine-millimeter handgun on sight of police, then managed to use the cover of darkness to make their escape.
At around 8:40 p.m. on Thursday, January 7th, officers conducting motorcycle patrol on Ordonez Street in the St. Martin’s area, noticed a man throw something into nearby bushes before he and his accomplice took off running.
The area was then searched, leading to the discovery of a firearm containing nine live rounds. The find was labelled and deposited as “found property” since it could not be linked to an owner.
