Suspects held as police mourn Police Constable Dylan Anthony

By Aaron Humes: It is rare for the Police Department to lose one of its own, even in operation mode, but any such loss hurts.

Those who knew and worked with 29-year-old Police Constable Dylan Anthony, of Camalote Village, who was shot and killed on Saturday, are still puzzling over why he would be a target for anyone.

Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, said the department has homed in on suspects: “We currently have the suspects in custody. We believe we have the two gunmen in custody and they are currently being interviewed by the CIB in Belmopan, Major Crime. And we are hoping that we should be able to make some significant progress by the end of the day today [Tuesday], where that murder is concerned.”

He added that while this case is close to home for the Department, their priority is still to bring justice for the victim and his family: “Certainly the death of Anthony is extremely tough for us. Anthony works at headquarters beside my office and I used to see him every day.  A very big, humble, respectable young man. I always joked with him when I passed him and he always had that good sense of humor and that big smile on his face. I certainly will miss his presence and I want to assure his family that we will do all we can to find those persons who are responsible for his demise. I don’t want to hear that it’s a case of mistaken identity. The fact is that they killed someone and as much as yes it bothers us that it’s a police, but who the person is that they killed shouldn’t have [anything] to do with it.”

The murder is believed to be linked to the prior Friday night shooting of Daniel Lopez in Roaring Creek and general rivalry in the villages of Roaring Creek and Camalote.
