Two male persons were arraigned before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith on Thursday, June 8, 2017 for a burglary at a fast food shop located on Albert Street. The older man has been identified as Adrian Sanchez who recently turned 18-years-old. Sanchez is currently on remand at the Belize Central Prison. The second culprit is 16-years-old.

Allegations are that on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, Lopez Fast Food was burglarized and damaged. They were both caught hiding in the ceiling by police. They were immediately detained. The owner of the restaurant, Roxanne Nunez, was contacted by police. They told her that her shop had been burglarized and when she visited the area, she saw that the ceiling was damaged. She estimated the damages to be approximately $375.

In court, the duo both pleaded not guilty. Prosecutor in the case, Inspector Egbert Castillo, objected to bail being granted given that they were caught red-handed and that they both live near the area. The Chief Magistrate agreed and as a result, they were both remanded into custody until July 4, 2017. The 16-year-old was remanded to the Youth Hostel.
