MORTAR ROUND FOUND ON DREDGE NEAR CAYE CAULKER

MORTAR ROUND FOUND ON DREDGE NEAR CAYE CAULKER

The Police is seeking information on the circumstances leading up to the discovery of the 60mm motar round found on a dredge near Caye Caulker last night.

Information gathered so far is that the watchman of a dredge barge anchored some 300 meters off the north of the island, noticed that there was a fire on the barge sometime around 6:30 p.m. The watchman called his supervisor who then sent the employees who had left only an hour earlier.


Police interviewed the seven crew members of the barge and recorded their statements, as well as canvassing the area. The mortar round was found in a bucket near the engine of the barge. The bucket was partially burned, and there were burned articles of clothing near the bucket. The mortar itself also had minor fire damage.

Police are considering the possibility of the mortar being used in an attempt to destroy the barge; however, no other evidence was obtained from the scene. Police have since turned the mortar over to the Belize Defence Force for storage at the Price Barracks.
