Five arrested for unlicensed gun

The discovery of a Taurus brand hand gun and magazine containing fifteen live 9mm rounds of ammunition has led to the arrest of five persons.  On Saturday night, Belize City Police saw a white Dodge Caravan traveling without headlights on. Police stopped the van in which were 24 year old Nelson Jared Juarez, 19 year old Mark Humes,  19 year old Brandon Smith,  18 year old Osbaldo Nataniel Nieto and 23 year old Jonathan Nieto. While nothing incriminating was found on the men, a search of the van yielded the gun. None of the occupants had a valid Firearm license and as a result Police arrested all of them for the offence of Kept Firearm and ammunition with a Gun License.
