Belize City man charged for gang affiliation

Posted: Monday, July 24, 2023. 8:48 pm CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: A Belize City man has been arrested for suspected gang affiliation.

Today, police formally charged 33-year-old Alexander Underwood with the crime of “being a member of a gang.”

He is expected to be arraigned in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court tomorrow. Gang affiliation is prohibited under the Crime Control and Criminal Justice Act, and carries a mandatory remand to the Belize Central Prison if the accused pleads not guilty to the charge.

Those charged for gang affiliation also cannot obtain bail at the Magistrate level; they must apply to the High Court of Belize through the assistance of an attorney.
