Search continues for suspect who escaped police custody

Posted: Friday, July 21, 2023. 4:52 pm CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Authorities in northern Belize are engaged in an ongoing search for Tyrone Reyes, a burglary suspect who escaped police custody at the Corozal Community Hospital on Wednesday. According to the police, it is believed that Reyes is hiding in the Orange Walk district.

This particular incident has become a focal point of public attention, primarily due to a viral video showing a police officer stumbling and then falling to the ground as he pursued Reyes.

Reyes was initially brought before the court on charges of burglary. As the Commissioner of Police reported, Reyes purportedly faked his illness leading to the order for him to be transported to the hospital for medical evaluation.

Upon arrival at the Corozal Community Hospital, Reyes took advantage of the situation to escape and literally ran left his police escort. The chase which was captured on video, has been widely circulated and viewed across numerous social media networks.

Authorities have issued a call to the public, urging anyone with knowledge of Reyes’ location to inform their nearest police station. Reyes has been classified as potentially dangerous, and members of the public have been advised against attempting to apprehend him personally.

This incident has triggered a broader debate about the protocol regarding suspects who allege illness while in police custody.
