Brandon Tillett back behind bars

Tonight, notorious George Street figure, 31-year-old Brandon Tillett aka “BET” , is on remand at the Belize Central Prison after police with heavy armed high power weapon had to escort the prison bus from the Belize City Magistrate’s Court to the Belize Central Prison. The reason for the special police escort today, like that of WPC Michelle Brown yesterday, was to safeguard the prisoners in the event of an ambush while on their way to prison, we were told.  The police are taking no chances with the increase in criminal activities. Earlier this evening, Tillett was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser on a single charge of aggravated assault with a firearm upon Tamia Terry, his ex-common-law wife and the mother of his child.  According to Terry, on New Year’s Day, while in Burrell Boom Village, Tillett assaulted her with a firearm. We had reported on the shooting where Terry says that she was driving and realized that shots were being fired on her vehicle. Tillett pleaded not guilty to the offense and was remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until February 2, 2018.
