By Aaron Humes: Police say they have arrested and charged 34-year-old Anthony Sanchez in Belmopan for alleged obtaining of property, i.e. money transfer, by deception.

According to police, a resident of St Matthew’s village, Cayo District, reported that on February 12 he was browsing Facebook Marketplace when he visited a page which was advertising a light grey recliner sofa set. He was informed that the set cost $1,500 but he was able to negotiate the price down to $1,300 and an extra $100 for delivery.

His contact sent an Atlantic Bank account number to deposit the money to, which the complainant did on February 13 and sent a copy of the receipt to the cell phone number with which he was contacted. He was informed that the sofa would be delivered in the afternoon when they met in Belmopan.

The contact called him around 1 in the afternoon saying he was trying to find his location, but did not respond when the complainant called him back. The complainant later found that the page advertising the sofa set had been removed from Facebook Marketplace.

On February 16, Belize City Precinct 4 police detained Sanchez at Queen Street Police Station and transported him to Belmopan, where he was charged. A second person is wanted by police in connection with this investigation.
