SAN PEDRO, Ambergris Caye, Belize District, Mon. Mar. 20, 2017–Canadian national Jordan Bacchus, 27, has been wanted in Belize for murder since last year.
However, before Belizean police officers could nab him, he made a clean getaway to Canada.
In Canada, Bacchus has again found himself on the wrong side of the law and is being sought in connection with multiple firearm-related offences.
According to the Toronto Police Service, on February 22, they executed search warrants at addresses in Toronto for him, but he could not be located at the time the warrants were executed.
Consequently, Toronto police are at this time asking citizens to contact police immediately if they know the whereabouts of Bacchus, who is considered armed and dangerous.
Last Thursday, The San Pedro Sun reported that, “Toronto police revealed to The San Pedro Sun that they were aware that Bacchus was wanted for murder in Belize, and this information helped them to obtain the necessary search warrants they used in an attempt to apprehend him.”
Readers will recall that in May of last year, local football superstar Melvin Almendarez was found dead on a feeder road in San Pedro Town.
Police had identified Bacchus as a prime suspect. He was subsequently detained by San Pedro police for 48 hours, but because of a lack of evidence, he was only charged for possession of controlled drugs and was released on bail.
However, one week later, San Pedro cops were able to gather enough evidence to bring a charge of murder against him, but he was nowhere to be found.
