American deemed prohibited immigrant

Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A. resident, 32 year old Timothy Eels, ran afoul of Belizean law, after failing to report his passport stolen to local police. As a result, the research assistant has been deemed a prohibited immigrant and the Immigration Department here requested a court order for deportation back to the United States.

Timothy Eels pleaded guilty to failure to produce documentation before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer.

Police picked up Mr Eels on December 19 and upon his being unable to provide police with any documentation, he was handed over to the Immigration Department.
