Eight young men now must stay behind bars after they were allegedly caught with a pen gun. At 12:40 on the morning of May 25th, the Orange Walk Police Quick Response Team searched a group of young men gathered under a tree in Yo Creek Village.
All eight were arrested and charged for Kept Prohibited Firearm. For those not familiar with what a pen gun is; it is a small pen like device used by the military in times of distress. It is used as a flare in most instances, however, it can be fitted with a .22 ammunition and can be deadly at close range.
