‘Belizean Fry Chicken’ Owner Deported to U.S. for Drug Crimes

Filed under: belize,global islands — admin @ 7:51 am

He had made quite a name for himself as the proprietor of the popular fast food establishment known as “Belizean Fry Chicken” on Black Orchid Street in the Lake Independence area. But according to U.S. law enforcement, 36-year-old Fred Hornby had quite a name even before he became the biggest Belizean name in fried chicken.

They say he was a drug dealer in the state of Florida, and issued a warrant for his arrest. Belize’s Crimes Intelligence Unit acted on that on Saturday morning when they picked him up at his father’s home on Richard Sidewalk in Belize City.

And even though his family is Belizean, Hornby is an American, so the CIU had no problems in putting him on the next flight out to Florida where he will face trial for charges relating to possession and sales of cocaine, and absconding in violation of bail.

Hornby had been in Belize since 2002.
