BRAZEN ROBBERY SHOOTOUT DEATH
IN THE HEART OF SAN IGNACIO TOWN


Avenue near its junction with
Salazar Street in Santa Elena Town.
The house is on rent to Garay's
sister, an employee of Courts Store
(San Ignacio) who is currently on
vacation in Toledo.
The plot allegedly included Elvis
Duncan, 25, also a construction
worker, likewise from Elridge
Village and residing at the same
house on George Price Avenue. The
third suspect has been identified as
Delawn Parham, 24, Belizean
Taxi Driver/Dee Jay, residing on
Mariana Gonzalez Street in Santa
Elena, Cayo.
Apart from working as a Taxi
Driver, and on weekends as a Dee
Jay, Parham also triples up as a
driver for La Popular Bakery
delivering bakery products to
various outlets.
Reliable reports indicate that it
was shortly after 11:00 a.m., when
Parham was at his usual taxi
hangout on the Western Highway
at the foot of the driveway leading
to the Loma Luz Hospital when he
reportedly received a telephone call
from Garay who invited him to the
house on George Price Avenue
where the planning allegedly
began.
The next telephone call from
Garay to Parham reportedly came
in at around 4:00 pm and he
proceeded to the house on George
Price Avenue where they waited for
a few minutes until Garay received
a telephone call before they
departed from the house.
Duncan, in possession of a small
revolver, sat in the front passenger
seat of Parham's blue Toyota
Corolla car bearing Cayo license
plates CY-D-3502 while Garay, in
possession of a rifle, reportedly
took to the back seat.
The trio then headed up George
Price Avenue, over the wooden
bridge, into San Ignacio Town and
parked near the eastern wall of the
Norman Broaster Stadium, across
the street from the farmers market.
They waited at this location
until the Bowen green Ford truck
with Belize City license plates
C-22548 appeared from the Santa
Elena side of the bridge.
The deposit truck was driven at
the time by Dennis "Dingy"
Flowers, accompanied by Chief
Security Officer Josiah
Thompson in the cab and Security
Officer Millard Tun riding with
the company's pump action 12
gauge shotgun in the pan of the
truck.
As the truck passed, the blue taxi
locked itself behind the truck and
followed it up Savannah Street,
Hudson Street, around the


Delawn Parham, 24,
Belizean Taxi Driver/Dee Jay
Columbus Park in front of the
police station and down Burns
Avenue.
The driver parked the truck in
front of the night deposit facility at
the Belize Bank and while Tun
remained in the pan of the truck,
Thompson alighted and went over
to the driver's side. The driver
handed him two deposit bags and
he moved to the dropping slot.
Thompson placed the key inside
the hole of the deposit slot and this
was when Garay allegedly emerged
from the back seat of Parham's blue
taxi car, fired a single shot from
close range at Millard Tun hitting
him in the head in the region of the
right eye. Tun fell into the pan of
the truck and Garay allegedly
proceeded to open fire at
Thompson from a little further
range hitting him in the left
shoulder.
Thompson dropped both bags,
pulled out the 9mm pistol he was
carrying and sought cover. Duncan
exited the taxi, took possession of
the two deposit bags that fell from
Thompson and rushed back to his
place in the front passenger seat of
the taxi.
It is alleged that Garay then
approached the driver who was still
seated behind the steering wheel of
the truck and demanded the other
bags, he poked the driver with the
gun in his ribs and the driver fell
out of the truck, rolled under it and
escaped by seeking refuge inside a
nearby Hindu Store.
Garay then took possession of two
deposit bags from inside the truck
and was attempting to flee towards
the taxi when Tun emerged from
the back of the truck and fired a
shot which caught him in the shin
of the right foot. While still
holding onto the bags and the rifle
Garay moved towards the waiting
taxi cab which was moving off.
The bags and the rifle fell out of
his hand but he managed to regain
possession of the rifle leaving the
two bags on the street, the car
reversed a few feet allowing Garay
to scramble into the back seat. It
sped off, down Bums Avenue, with
the back passenger door, through


which Garay crawled, still opened.
A taxi driver who operates from
the area near the bank's ATM,
retrieved the two bags, moved to
the door of the bank and after a few
seconds he convinced the Bank's
Security Guard to open the door
and to take possession of the bags.
The taxi driver then turned to the
green truck where he found four
more bags and handed them to the
bank's Security Guard. The key
was also removed from the night
deposit slot and handed over to the
Bank's Security Guard.
The car sped all the way down
Burns Avenue and disappeared.
Since the injured Tun was already
inside the back of the truck, other
Bowen employees who were in the
area, loaded the injured Thompson
beside Tun and rushed them to the
Loma Luz Hospital where
Thompson passed away shortly
thereafter.
Tun underwent emergency
treatment and was transfered to the
Health Care Partners Hospital
(formerly Universal Health
Services) in Belize City.
When the exchange of gunfire
ended, the after-effects found
included two distinct gunshot
marks on the wall of the bank near
the night depsoit slot; four holes
through a nearby plywood sign; one
shot lodged inside the headlight of
a motorcycle parked nearby all of
which police suspect were fired
from the 22 rifle. There were also
two bullet marks on the hood of a
taxi van along with a perferated
windshield on the same van.
Police also recovered several
expended point 22 and 9 mm
casings from the scene as well as 3
expended 12 gauge cartridges
inside the back of the Bowen
deposit truck which they suspect
were fired by the injured Security
Guard Millard Tun.
The getaway car sped down the
entire length of Bums Avenue to the
cemetery. Somewhere along the
way it experienced a blow out of
the back tire on the driver's side but
the driver continued onto Savannah
Street, over the wooden bridge into
Santa Elena Town, down George
Price Avenue and back to their
home base where the injured Garay


Security Officer Millard Tun
spent his birthday on
Wednesday, January 7 inside
a Belize City Hospital
and Duncan were let off.
A pool of blood near a cement
fence post indicates that Garay held
onto it for a while before being
helped by Duncan to enter the
house.
Parham reportedly reversed the
car, still with the punctured tire,
into the yard, turned it around and
headed back up George Price
Avenue, this time however turning
into Carillo Puerto Avenue
heading towards the Western
Highway. However, before
reaching the Western Highway, he
turned left into Carmen Street
stopping at its junction with Salazar
Street near the Adventist Church
and Primary School.
He came out of the car and
walked across the street to a
mini-grocery store where he asked
to purchase a Smart telephone card.
The shop does not sell phone cards
and since he appeared in distress
with a flat tire, the store owner did
not object to sending his son on a
bicycle to the nearby China Town
Store to purchase a card for him.
Furthermore, the proprietor is said
to be acquainted with Parham as he
regularly visits to shop while on his
delivery rounds for La Popular
Bakery.
As the phone card was taking
long to arrive, the proprietor of the
store facilitated Parham's request
for a 911 call which was
successfully placed via which
Parham told the operator that he
was the victim of a carj acking used
to commit a robbery at the Belize
Bank in San Ignacio.

Public Notice
Public Utilities Commission (PUC)

PUBLIC UTILITIES PUBLIC UTILITIES
COMMISSION COMMISSION
In exercise of the powers conferred upon it by Section 32 of the Public Utilities Commission Act, Chapter 223 of the Laws of Belize, Revised Edition
2000, the Electricity Act, Chapter 221 of the Laws of Belize, Revised Edition 2000, and all other powers thereunto enabling, the Public Utilities
Commission (hereinafter referred to as "the Commission) hereby notifies the general public that the Commission has reviewed and has altered by way of
several amendments, the 2008 Annual Review Proceeding Final Decision (hereinafter referred to as "the Final Decision") for the Belize Electricity
Limited (BEL).

Reasons for Amendments to the Final Decision:
The Commission made its Decision to review and altered the Final Decision for several reasons, including:

a) Decision 6(b) of the Final Decision required that the Commission implement a new Rate Setting Methodology (RSM) effective September 1, 2008,
that is intended to provide for more timely collection of the costs paid by BEL for wholesale power and to encourage more efficient consumption of
electricity by consumers. This new RSM requires that a Reference Price of Power (RPP cost of power component of Mean Electricity Rate (MER)) be
set twice annually, with a new RPP being required for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009. Any change in the RPP necessitates a revised MER and
revised tariffs for the various customer classes, thereby requiring amendments to any previous Decision that set the MER and the approved tariffs.

b) Certain Decisions within the Final Decision were made taking into consideration the then escalating price of oil and other undesirable economic
conditions. Since then, the price of oil has been reduced quite dramatically, resulting in much lower energy costs and some improvement in overall
economic conditions within the electricity sector. Given these positive developments, the Commission has decided to take advantage of the situation and
correct certain irregularities in the way BEL records certain expenses that ultimately result in higher electricity rates to consumers, and to allow BEL to
realize the target Rate of Return (RoR) of 12% for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009, as opposed to the 10% RoR approved in the Final Decision
that was issued June 26, 2008.

General Effects of the Amendments to the Final Decision:
The amendments to the Final Decision have the following effects:

a) The approved Regulated Asset Value (RAV) for 2009 has been reduced by some $6.47 million, from $276.17 million to $269.70 million.

b) The Depreciation component of the Tariff Basket Revenue (TBR forecast total revenues to be collected by BEL through approved electricity rates)
has been reduced by some $295,000 for 2009, or $145,000 for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

c) The Return component of the TBR has been increased by some $4.75 million for 2009, or $2.34 million for the period January 1 to June 30,2009.

d) The Operational Expenditure (Opex) component of the TBR has been increased by some $6.47 million for 2009, or $3.18 million for the period
January 1 to June 30, 2009. Opex has been increased by an amount equal to the reduction in the RAV.

e) The Taxes/Licence Fees component of the TBR has been reduced by some $550,000 for 2009, or $286,000 for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

f) The net effect of the above is that the approved Value Added of Delivery (VAD) has been increased by some $10.37 million for 2009, or $5.09
million for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

g) The approved forecast for the TBR for 2009 is some $170.16 million for 2009, or $83.21 million for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

Approved Mean Electricity Rate (MER), Tariffs, Forecast Cost of Power (FCP) and Forecast Sale of Power (FSP):
The various amendments outlined above have resulted in the following approved MER, Cost of Power and Sale of Power forecasts, and Tariff Schedule
for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009:

Belize Electricity Limited (BEL
Mean Electricity Rate (MER), Forecast Cost of Power (FCP) and Forecast Sale of Power (FSP) for January 1 to June 30. 2009

Dear Editor;
With the increasing crime rate in
our beloved twin towns; I cannot
continue to remain silent; and hope
that our citizens start taking actions
before more blood is shed.
The Police Department (assisted
by the BDF) acted quickly in the
two recent robbery turned murders.
They should be commeded for that.
Unfortunately, on the other hand;
it seems now that only when
someone is killed the police acts
quickly.
According to Inspector Wade, in
an interview on Channel 5; he
admitted that one of the suspects
in the Eck murder was wanted for
Police Keep Up
Dear Editor;
Please allow me space in your
newspaper to commend the efforts
of the Officer in Charge of Cayo
Police, Sr. Supt Paul Wade and
his team, including Sgt. Mark
Flowers, Sgt. Paulino and Sgt.
Sanchez for their swift action in
apprehending those responsible for


9 months. And where was he and
what was he doing for 9 months?
If he was captured at least 8 months
and a few weeks ago, one life could
have been saved.
Warm regards,
Evaristo Avella,
Santa Elena, Cayo

Ed. note
Dear Mr. Avella;
To the best of our knowledge, in
the "two recent robbery turned
murders" there was no BDF
involvement. Furthermore, the
suspect that was on the run for
nine months was never charged
in the Eck murder.
The Good Work
the senseless murder of Mr. Josiah
Thompson an upstanding member
in our community.
It is my earnest and humble wish
that justice be served on those
responsible for this heinous act and
for disrupting the peacefulness and
security in our community.
Anthony Chan, San Ignacio

BORLND TRUCKING


By Dan Whitworth Newsbeat
technology reporter
After a year which saw the
Wii Fit and Apple's iPod Touch go
huge, what can tech fans expect in
2009?
From next generation HDTV to
big news in the world of mobile
phones and video games galore.
Technology reporter Dan
Whitworth has a look at some of
the things expected to make it
big.

MOBILE PHONES
Two of the phones that are likely
to do well on the High Street next
year are T-Mobile's G1, or Google
phone (already out), and Nokia's
rival to the iPhone the Nokia 5800
XpressMusic (released late Jan/
early Feb).
Reviews for the Google phone
have been mixed, with its style
coming in for much of the criticism
along with its weight 158 grams.
Phrases like 'every day charging'
and 'no flash video' will also alarm
some tech fans.
But it does deliver when it comes
to user interface with easy to use
touch screen technology. There's a
slide up screen to reveal a keyboard
almost as big as the phone itself.
And makers say this is the phone
that Nokia's Comes With Music
service was born to be used on.
One touch of a button on the
phone's home screen and you're
browsing millions of tracks. Its 8
GB of memory means it'll be able
to hold about 6,000 of them.

'BETTER THAN HDTV'
No sooner have tech
fans embraced high-definition,
flat-screen TVs that the next
generation is already knocking at

the door.
OLED TV is an energy saving,
ultra-thin, super high-def TV with
screens just millimetres thick that
provide crisper and brighter
images.
It uses organic light-emitting
diodes (OLED) to produce images
so actually uses less energy than
LCD TVs as they don't need a
backlight to boost brightness.
Of course the quality you get out
depends on what you put in HD
channels and Blu-ray DVDs are
best but you'll notice a difference
whatever source it uses.
One example is Sony's XEL-1.
At just 11 inches you don't get a
lot for your 1,500-2,000, but there
are plans for a larger version next
year.

VIDEO GAMES
Available on the Xbox and PS3,
Resident Evil 5 is due for release
in March, four years after the last
instalment.
Chris Redfield, from the
original Resident Evil, returns with
an arsenal of knives, pistols,
machine guns and sniper rifles to
keep the evil at bay.
For those interested in some-
thing a bit more old school Street
Fighter IV is scheduled for release
on 20 February.
Available on Xbox 360,
PlayStation 3, and PC Capcom
supremo Yoshi Ono expects it to
be more straightforward and have
a broader appeal that Street Fighter
TII.
He told gamestracker.com: "SF
III kind of went back to the roots
and got hard again. IV is easy.
Maybe if there's an SFVwe'll go
back the other direction and be
more hardcore again."

received a facelift with a new fence,
new back-boards, new bleachers
and fresh paint on the court.
The work was done by a team
from Peacework International
comprised of eleven students and
one staff member from Wake
Forest University in North
Carolina.
The group is also holding a
reading camp this week for five to
seven year-olds from the Collet
Division at Gwen Lizarraga High
School.
Minister of Education, Hon.
Patrick Faber along with
Executive Director of Peacework
Steve Darr, the Caribbean
Development Officer Drew
Cogbill and the team today
officially commemorated the
renovated community basketball
court.
Peacework International has

years, working in a variety of
development initiatives in Belize
City, Dangriga, Cayo, Orange Walk
and numerous villages.
Deputy Chief Education Officer
Carol Babb has been essential in
facilitating the work of Peacework

Each project is organized on a
case-by-case basis with community
leaders according to locally
determined development needs and
objectives.
It is believed that academic and
technical resources, volunteer
service, and local community
leadership are the components of
sustainable, effective development
and lasting social change.
This strategy is most effective
when education, business,
medicine, social work, agriculture,
engineering, literacy, and other
disciplines are applied in one
shared course of action, one
community at a time around the

In Belize City, the council has
the added advantage resulting from
the recent paving of Albert and

rates present additional advantages
for UDP slates nationwide.

Electricity Rates Gone Down


BELIZE CITY, Wednesday,
January 7, 2009:
"We will reduce the cost of
living for the Belizean People.
We will reduce the cost of
electricity No matter what".
Such was the campaign promise
and manifesto pledge of the United
Democratic Party and Party Leader
Dean Barrow in the week
leading up to the February 7, 2008
general elections.

transformed into reality.
A press release from the Public
Utilities Commission today
informed that electricity rates
have gone down.
The release informed that the
Mean Electricity Rate has been
reduced by six cents going down
from forty-four cents to thirty-eight
cents.
This mean that residential,
commercial and even industrial
users will see a sharp decrease in


electricity rates.
In addition, commercial
customers will be receiving a ten
dollar decrease in their monthly
service charge, industrial users will
see a decrease in their monthly
demand charge.
Furthermore, the cost for streets
lights paid for by the Government
of Belize will pay seven cents less
for street lights which now costs
forty-eight cents.

the reduced rates are a result of
amendments to the 2008 Annual
Review Proceeding Final Decision
and will remain in effect until June
30, which is the conclusion of the
Annual Review Proceeding.
The good news for the electricity
company is that its rate of returns
has been increased from ten to
twelve percent.
The PUC release informs that
"certain decisions within the
Final Decision were made taking
into consideration the then
escalating price of oil and other
undesirable economic conditions.
Since then, the price of oil has
been reduced quite dramatically,
resulting in much lower energy
costs and some improvement in
overall economic conditions
within the electricity sector. Given
these positive developments, the
Commission has decided to take
advantage of the situation and
correct certain irregularities in the
way B.E.L. records certain
expenses that ultimately result
in higher electricity rates to
consumers, and to allow BEL to
realize the target Rate of Return
of twelve percent for the period
January first to June thirtieth,
2009, as opposed to the ten
percent approved in the Final
Decision that was issued June
twenty-sixty, 2008."

A Prosperous I
BY: Lorenzo L. Gonzalez Jr.
Tourism Student, Galen
University, 06 January 2009:
Coincidently, 2009 is at a start
and already our twin towns of San
Ignacio and Santa Elena are at
crisis.
Christmas recently passed and it
is a time of kindness and good
nature, during this season we greet
each other with a Merry
Christmas and wishing each other
a Prosperous New Year.

Evidently, prosperity is sought
differently in the case of the recent
incidents, some people seek to
prosper from the prosperity of
others; how ironic.
Our entire community is
presently at alert and certain

shocked and feeling unsafe. Is it

sake to say, "The assailants are

Two German children aged five
and six have been stopped by
police from eloping to Africa to tie

The budding lovebirds, identified
as Mika and Anna-Lena, packed
bathing costumes, sunglasses and
a lilo and headed for the airport.
They even had the presence of
mind to invite along an official
witness Anna-Lena's seven-year-
old sister.
The three got as far as Hanover
railway station before police
intervened.
The young couple were "very
much in love" and had decided to
get married in Africa "where it is

us to point fingers at others and to
feel better by blaming someone else
or to feel satisfied by leaving
social problems to the authorities
when we can take action to make a
positive difference.
The family is the pillar of any
society, without the good
foundation that parents should
foster their children, the structure
is bound to fall.
Many times I see very young
children roaming the streets at late
hours of the night. Oh it is
harmless some would say, to the
contrary, idle time harvests
corruption of the mind. Why take
action into correcting your children
after it's too late, when it can be
done beforehand. Pay attention to
your children, meet their friends
and set restrictions. That is not
considered interfering with their
personal life; it is being a concerned
parent.
Secondly, the excuse that -
parents are restricted by law to
punish their children will not hold
water. It it every parent's primary
responsibility to raise their children
with respect for life and property.
There are many forms of
punishment that parents can
envoke in the process of instilling
discipline in their children. As a
child, I remember any day
preferring a beating instead of
being revoked the opportunity of
attending my annual high school
fair. So whenever you remember
this article, ask yourself the
prophetic words from the now
deceased Belizean Writer
SMOKEY JOE "Parents, its
nine o'clock, do you know where
your children are?"
My condolences go to the
bereved families of the victims of
the recent spate of lawlessness
within our community.

Fr. Haas And His Team Make 6th Visit To Belize


SANTA ELENA TOWN, Cayo
District. Wednesday, January 7,
2009:
For six consecutive years
members of The Toledo Diocesan
Mission Team, of Ohio, have been
making annual humanitarian trips
to Belize.
During these trips the team has
primarily been assisting local
schools in renovating classrooms,
installing proper electrical wiring,
painting, interior enhancements,
upgrading toilet facilities and
constructing bookcases.
This year the visiting team
consists of 25 members, headed by
Fr. Robert Haas, who has
accompanied all teams on previous
trips to Belize. An additional 3
members will be arriving in the
next few weeks.

In selecting the school, the team

and Parishes. Schools are selected
based on their persistence and their
needs.

"It certainly has lost its novelty in

funny. And to have it this long, it

Tree Falls.
At Immaculate Conception RC
Primary school in Bullet Tree, the
team has installed 390 feet of
sidewalks to connect the buildings
on campus. They have also painted
the inside of all (12) classrooms
and replaced the 2 electrical
panels for future expansion.
They installed lighting fixtures,
fans, outlets in all classrooms (over
1500 ft of electrical wire), replaced
blackboards and where possible,
repaint. Repairs were made to the
fence around school yard. (Johnny
Roberson's crew) and glass blocks
were installed where windows
were nailed shut.
A termite damaged door frame
was replaced and a partition was
built between classrooms.
In the following weeks, Fr. Haas
and the team will be working on
replacing 2 exterior doors,
building doors for the toilet block
and replacing zinc with clear zinc
for light.
Repairs will be made to the
windows for the toilet block, the
outside of the buildings will be
painted, gutters will be repaired as
well as windows and vents.
In an interview Fr. Haas informed
the STAR Newspaper that the
team's mission to our shores is
made possible through funds
raised in the United States of
America.
He informed that this year the
team raised $20,000US specifically
earmarked to assist Immaculate
Conception School in Bullet Tree
Falls, Cayo.
Of interest is the fact that all team
members are here in Belize
voluntarily and each member pays
for their traveling expenses.
Most members are here for a
week or two. As team leader
however, Fr. Hass remains until the
year's project is completed.
From Immaculate Conception
School in Bullet Tree, the team
moves on to the Octavia Waight
Center for Senior Citizens in San
Ignacio Town where they will
remain for five days from the 24th
to 28th of January assisting with
much needed repairs to the
building and its environs which
should improve the lives especially
of senior citizens who call the
Octavia Waight Center their home.
Fr. Haas additionally informed
that the team's energy is derived
from the sheer knowledge that they
are providing the children with a
better environment in which to
learn and senior citizens a more
comfortable environment in which
to spend the twilight of their years.
He said that the smiles on the
faces of children and senior citizens
keeps the team coming back every
year with renewed energy and
commitment in their humanitarian
mission.

BELIZE WATER SERVICES LTD.


BR S PRESS RELEASE


Belize City, Belize. Monday, January 5, 2009:
Dirty Water: San Ignacio/Santa Elena

BWS hereby informs customers in the San Ignacio and Santa Elena area
that the company is aware of recurring instances of dirty or discoloured
water in the distribution system recently. Unfortunately after the major
floods resulting from TD16, we were forced to focus our resources on
restoring the Benque Viejo system where customers were experiencing a
severe shortage of water. We are pleased to announce that Benque Viejo
now has a supply that is more reliable than that previous to the flooding.

BWS' tests of the water samples show that, despite the discolouration, the
water is properly chlorinated and poses no health risk. At this point, BWS
has not yet pinpointed the exact cause of the discouloured water as over
the last two and a half weeks, we have had reports of occurrences
scattered across the San Ignacio/Santa Elena System. BWS has informed
the PUC and the Ministry of Health of the situation and has today
commenced an intense effort to identify the cause and resolve the
situation properly. BWS personnel, along with representatives from the
PUC and Ministry of Health, are today paying a site visit and collecting
water samples from the river, the source wells, the storage tanks and
various distribution points in the system. BWS will continue to flush the
water mains regularly and will now dispatch our Well Rig to attempt to
locate usable water sources away from the existent river sources. We will
continue to test and monitor the water quality frequently in order to ensure
the continued health and safety of our customers.

Until this situation is fully resolved, customers may experience some
interruption in service and some instances of dirty water especially when
water is restored after an outage. Customers may wish to maintain some
household storage and boil water that is to be used for drinking. Please
inform our office in Santa Elena immediately whenever the tap water
appears discoloured either via telephone at 824-2154 or 824-4573 or
e-mail at bvsi(ibwsl.com.bz.

BWS is committed to ensuring the continuity and safety of your service.
We will attempt to keep interruptions to a minimum and we are hopeful
that this situation can be properly resolved within the next few weeks.
BWS will provide notice to you, our valued customers, via radio
announcements so preparations can be made for planned interruptions.

BWS apologises for any inconvenience this situation may cause and
requests your understanding whilst we strive to improve our service to
you.

For more information regarding this or any other BWS Release,
please contact

BRAZEN ROBBERY SHOOTOUT DEATH

IN THE HEART OF SAN IGNACIO TOWN


When the phone card arrived, he
entered the credit into his Smart
Phone and with the assistance of
the proprietor of the store with a
telephone book, got the number for
the San Ignacio Police Station and
recounted the same story about
beingj acked to commit the robbery.
Shortly thereafter, the police
arrived and took him to the station
where he told the police that he was
held up by two persons who spoke
in Spanish and that they forced him
at gunpoint to transport them to
commit the robbery.
The interview began with the
police commending him on his
narrow brush with death. However,
during the process of the interview,
an eyewitness reported that he saw
when Parham actually reversed the
car to pick up the injured Garay.
A senior investigator became
suspicious when he realized that
Parham's story contained
inconistencies such as the fact that
he did not escape while the robbers
were pulling off the act but instead,
apart from transporting them to the
scene he actually waited for them
to do their thing and even whisked
them away from the scene.
This was when the cookie began
to crumble and the intensity of the
interview was ratcheted up a bit
then the truth began to emerge.
Based on the information
provided by Parham, a team of
policemen rushed to the house on
George Price Avenue where they
found Garay bleeding profusely in
a bed along with indications that
he had taken two pain killers from
a package found nearby.
He was reportedly on the verge
of going into shock. He was rushed
to the San Ignacio hospital where
he underwent emergency treatment
for a shattered shin on the right foot
and two shots in the buttocks.
He was later transported in a
critical condition to the Karl
Heusner Memorial Hospital where
he remains hospitalized under
police guard.
Based on information received,
Police rushed to a house under
construction also in Santa Elena
where they came upon Duncan.
Upon sensing the presence of the
police Duncan attempted to flee by
jumping over a cement wall but fell
injured on the other side of the wall.
He was transported to the San
Ignacio Hospital and later rushed
to the Western Regional Hospital
in Belmopan where he remains
hospitalized also under police
guard.
Police searched an area with tall
bushes behind the house where
they found a white plastic crocus


bag containing a red and black
jacket; a dark color cap; a point 22
Ruger rifle with one live round in
the chamber; one point 22
magazine, with ten live point 22
rounds, one point 38 special
revolver Taurus brand with five live
point 38 rounds; one green and
white Belikin bag with two Belize
Bank deposit bags numbers 41 and
148 inside containing money and
wrapped inside a black female
short pant.
The day's deposit consisted of
eight bags containing over $60,000
in cash and cheques.
When the money retrieved from
the bushes was counted it
amounted to $2,600 in one bag and
$450 (coins) in the other bag.
When the deposit was rechecked,
of the over $60,000 deposit for the
day, it came up short of just about
$4,500.
Delawn Parham appeared before
Magistrate Kathleen Lewis on
Wednesday, January 7, where the
following nine charges were read
to him: Murder, Attempt Murder,
Robbery, Maim, Use of deadly
means of harm, Two counts of
unlicensed firearms possession and
two counts of keeping unlicensed
ammunition.
Police informed that as soon as
Arden Garay and Elvis Duncan are
released from the hospital similar
charges will be brought against
them.
Chief Security Officer Josiah
Alexander Thompson is a former
Sergeant of Police with over 20
years service.
He has been employed at the
Bowen's Cayo Distribution Center
for over seven years, since May
2001. He was also one of forty
five citizens of the community who
recently underwent the training and
was appointed a Special Constable
committed to providing voluntary
service in partnership with the
police for a safer community.
He is predeceased by his father
Josiah Thompson I. He is
survived by his mother, Ms. Jane
Harris residing in the western
village of Blackman Eddy; one
brother, Roger Young residing in
Belmopan; Four sisters, Martha
(San Ignacio), Adlene (Belize
City), Adelita (Blackman Eddy)
and Loretta (Santa Elena, Cayo).
He is also survived by his wife
Yolanda "Chinny" Thompson;
two sons Josiah III and Shamir
as well as two daughters, Shante
(who delivered the eulogy) and
Chantell all residing with their
mother in Los Angeles.
He is additionally survived by
colleagues from Bowen & Bowen
Limited who showed up in large


numbers for the funeral including
senior executives of the company
such as Nicholas Pollard Jr. and
David Craig as well as Santiago
Pelayo (Districts Manager),
Michael Moore (Districts
Supervisor) and District
Distribution Center Managers:
Gilroy Spence (Cayo), John
Pollard (Orange Walk) and Roy
Alfaro (Stann Creek).
Josiah is also survived by
several aunts, uncles, nieces,
nephews, cousins, other relatives
and many friends.
As we go to press, a relative
informed that Millard Tun's
condition is gradually improving at
the Health Care Partners Hospital
in Belize City. Tun, himself a
former policeman, has been
,r .o .I


employed at the Cayo Distribution
Center since May 2005.
The incident has sent a wave of
shock and outrage throughout the
community. This was evident by a
large gathering that held vigil
inside the Columbus Park during
the night immediately after the
incident.
The gathering likewise braved the
heat of the following days in front
of the San Ignacio Police Station
all in an effort to see the faces of
those who dared to commit this
outrageous act. This was not to be
however as, apart from the taxi
driver, Delawn Parham, the two
other suspects are hospitalized, one
at the Belmopan Hospital and the
other at the Karl Heusner
Memorial Hospital in Belize City.
Police informed that as soon as they
are well enough they will have their
day in court.
