By Breaking Belize News Staff: Two teenagers are on remand after being charged with using a video to promote gang-related activity. Tyreek Rasheed Straughan, 19, and a 17-year-old minor were identified from a viral video showing three young men displaying and unloading a firearm.

Following the video, the Belize Police Department conducted an investigation leading to the identification of the three males. Straughan and the minor appeared in Court #4 before Magistrate Lois Young, with Straughan represented by attorney John Nembhard.

Both teens were charged with using a video to promote gang-related activity, specifically possession of a firearm without a license. They pleaded not guilty but were denied bail under section 16 of the Crimes Control Criminal & Justice Act. Straughan was remanded to Belize Central Prison, and the minor to the Wagner’s Youth Facility, both until July 15, 2024. The minor, accompanied by a social worker, also pleaded not guilty. Magistrate Young informed them they could apply for bail through the High Court or with a private attorney’s assistance.
