Dorian Blair, one of the two Belize City men recently charged for impersonating police officers, was before the Supreme Court for a bail hearing on Monday, May 8, 2017. Unfortunately, his hearing had to be postponed until Friday, May 12 after his attorney Oscar Selgado asked for an adjournment. Judge Madam Antoinette Moore granted the adjournment and the matter was set for May 12, 2017. Before Blair left the stand, Moore asked how he was doing in prison. Blair responded that he was being sanctioned because it is claimed that he was a repeat offender of the same crime.

Blair was arraigned along with Barrington Slusher on April 24, 2017 before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith. They were charged with a count of false pretence of an officer after allegations were made against them that on April 19, 2017, the duo pretended to be police officers at the Publics Supermarket on the Northern Highway. Their attire got the attention of actual police officers and they were detained. It is believed that Blair and Slusher had intentions of robbing the establishment.

Blair has previously been accused of such an offense for which he has another case before the court. Blair and Slusher are both due back in court on this latest offense on July 4, 2017.
