A Belmopan resident has accused a special constable working out of the Queen Street Police Station of stealing money from him while he was waiting to catch the first bus out of town.

Today, John Myvett, 37, a resident of Flamboyant Crescent in Ladyville, Belize District, was read charges of theft before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer in the #2 Magistrate’s Court.

Ronel Rivero, 33, reported that he left Caesar’s Palace on the Barracks around 3:00 in the morning of Saturday, April 14, after socializing. Realizing that he had a substantial sum of money on his person, approximately $1,550 — $990 in one pocket of his pants, and the rest, $560, in the other — and knowing that the first bus to Belmopan would leave around 5 in the morning, he decided to go somewhere safe to wait it out – the Queen Street Police Station.
