By BBN Staff: Two Belgian tourists contacted BBN today to plea for assistance from the Government of Belize, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or any relevant authority.

Allan Dropsy and Jagoda Cwojdzinska, the two Belgian tourists, are asking for any assistance that they can get.

Dropsy told BBN that they had purchased a vehicle in Mango Creek from a person they trusted but the man then reported the vehicle stolen.

According to Dropsy, he and his girlfriend traveled to Cayo for a visit but were detained at taken to the San Ignacio Police Station.

Dropsy told BBN that the officers took his bag with his passport and BZ$550. After being held for 48 hours, he claims he was released but when he was given back his bag it only contained his house keys.

He claims he questioned the officers about the passports and the money but the officers reportedly claimed they knew nothing about it.

Dropsy says the officers told him and his girlfriend: “ You are not in your country, you cant say anything.”

The couple says they feel helpless since they are in a foreign country and are extremely worried they may not be able to return home since they have lost their passports.

According to Dropsy, they met with the Deputy Commander of the San Ignacio police station who told them that he had checked with the arresting officers and no one had seen the passports.

Dropsy, however, says he fails to understand how the passports just disappear from the police station. The couple is seeking the help of any relevant authority to assist with recovering their money and passports so they can leave Belize and most likely never return.

    Its a House of Crooks!! Who do you think are committing all the robberies??
    Who has the guns?? Where are all the guns coming from? How many of these crimes have been solved??
    The rest of Belizeans are sitting ducks! Whose going to be the next victim? It could be you!! Keep people poor, in despair, hopeless, in fear of crimes or being the next victim and you keep them controlled.
    Tourism is a huge help to the economy. So why do we bite the hands that feed you?
    Where are the Leaders outrage in all this? Silence…..
    BUT -The people voted these people in.
    As the saying goes ‘mine you get what you wish for!’

    Just a few facts . The yellow truck was been sold for $8,000.00 He made a deposit of $1,800.00 and took off with the truck. Not a good thing to do. The owner called the police on him. He needs his passport so that he may exit and not return. He also pulled stuff on his landlordcC

    I know both he and his girl friend fairly well. They have done a few bad things. Check with their landlord. They also owe someone for a place of business. They tried stealing the yellow truck after only depositing $1,800.00 on an $8,000.00 vehicle. The owner called the cops on him. Let him return to the owner to bargain for some of his down payment back. Have no sympathy for him. Give him passport and escort him to the airport never to return.
