crime sceneBy BBN Staff: A Salvadoran national was arrested by Dangriga Police on Friday morning after information was received that four persons were hunting and fishing in the Cockscomb Basin Natural Reserve.

Police officers, Belize Defense Force (BDF) soldiers and rangers conducted a patrol in the area around 10:50 a.m., where they saw two male persons in a kayak who attempted to escape by jumping into the Swasey River.

One of the men managed to escape but 39-year-old Jaime Alexander Arita Diego who is currently residing in Bella Vista Village, was not so lucky as he was captured and found inside the kayak with a 16-gauge shotgun along with six cartridges, for which he was arrested.

Diego has since been charged for the offense of “kept firearm and ammunition without a gun license.”
