BELIZE CITY–Two men who are alleged members of the Ghost Town Crips gang who were remanded to prison on charges of attempted murder and illegal firearm and ammunition possession were released on Supreme Court bail this morning after their bail application was heard before Justice Denis Hanomansingh.
Roger Anthony, 37, the reputed leader of the gang, who had renounced his gang leadership in October in a media ceremony at which he appeared in the company of the head of the Gang Suppression Unit, and Kendis Flowers, 23, who is said to be Anthony’s right-hand lieutenant, were both released on a $5,000 bail plus one surety in the same amount.
Justice Hanomansingh stipulated that the men are to report to the Queen Street Police Station every Friday, beginning on Friday, December 5, until their case is dealt with.
In addition, they are to surrender their travel documents and are to stay away from all prosecution witnesses in the case.
They are to return to the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on December 18, 2014.
Anthony and Flowers are accused of the attempted murder of Shelly Meighan, the mother of the well-known Meighan brothers — Ellis, Tyrone and Shaquile.
Shelly Meighan told police that on Sunday, October 26, 2014, she was at her home on Banak Street, which lies in the immediate Ghost Town vicinity, and when she looked through one of her windows she saw Roger Anthony standing in her yard.
Meighan said that Anthony was dressed in a camouflage outfit and had a beanie on his head.
After they exchanged a few words, she reported, he fired a hail of bullets in her direction.
Police charged Anthony and Flowers with aggravated assault, attempted murder and damage to property.
Anthony was charged separately with possession of an unlicensed firearm and unlicensed ammunition.
