San Pedro Police have arrested and charged 25-year-old, Anthony Carballo, a Belize City Resident for the murder of Deon Faber and Allen Martinez in San Pedro Town which occurred on Thursday, March 21, 2019.
According to a report by Channel 5 News, a woman carrying a child and diaper bag along with two men were captured on surveillance camera arriving by boat in San Pedro just prior to the double murder of Deon Faber and Allen Martinez. The trio headed up Pescador Drive and later arrived at Faber’s house, but the woman stayed one block away. The two gunmen proceeded to the house just after one o’clock on Thursday afternoon. Faber was inside his house and was executed in his bedroom while Martinez, who was visiting, was shot twice and died soon after. Faber’s wife was saved; she hid under a table. The gunmen left the house; one of them was nabbed by police just before he boarded a water taxi.
Carballo is no stranger to Police as he was arrested and charged for the murder of Jermaine McNab in 2012. After serving six years on remand there was not enough evidence to convict him for that murder and was acquitted in 2018.
