By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Belize Defence Force (BDF) is conducting an investigation into the disappearance of a high-powered rifle that went missing from Camp Belizario in Central Farm, Cayo.
Chief of Staff, Lieutenant Colonel Ricardo Leal says that investigators are yet to ascertain when the weapon went missing.
However, Leal says that they do have persons of interest.
“At the moment, we have them confined. We cannot just send people on suspension because we don’t know the outcome of the investigation,” Leal said.
In addition, Leal asserted that the weapon had to have been taken from someone who might have had a key or had access to the area where it was stored.
Leal says that they are aware that it was taken from the actual safe that they keep weapons in.
