Obtaining Property by deception
58-year-old Dorothea Pineda, business owner of DFC area San Pedro Town reported that on Tuesday, January 19th at about 6PM she was at her business place located on Coconut Drive, when she asked her employee about ‘the shrimp delivery’, as she saw a note pad with a total of $380 and $280 being paid, leaving a balance of $100 for shrimps she had ordered. Her employee then told her that she thought that she had already received the order and that a male person of Creole descent by the name of Brian Neal came and asked her if she wants to order shrimp from him. He then asked her for $380, but she only gave him $280. Her employee said she had gotten orders from Pineda via the male person’s cell phone. Pineda denied giving such information. On Monday, February 22nd at about 7PM, while Pineda was at her business place along with the employee, she was shown a picture of a male person detained at the Orange Walk Police station, who her employee identified as the same male person to whom she gave the $280 for the shrimp. Orange Walk Police confirmed that they had 19-year-old Brian Neal of Kings Park Belize City in custody for the crime of “Obtaining Property by Deception”. They were informed that Brian Neal is also wanted by San Pedro Police for the same crime.
