There has been an increase of crimes related to murder and attempted murder in the Vicinity of Belmopan and police are a little behind on the cases. However, Belmopan Police made their first arrest on the four murder cases for this year. As we told you in yesterday’s newscast, Belmopan Police arrested and charged 19 year old Hue Milton for the murder of 30 year old Elroy Ramirez who was shot dead inside a yard in the Another World Area Roaring Creek on Thursday March 5th. Milton appeared at the Magistrate’s court on Tuesday earlier this week to answer to charges of murder. The case was adjourned until the 11th of June 2015. Officer Commanding Belmopan Police gave us an update today on the murder and also on the shooting incident that occurred Sunday March 8th.
