Allegations are being made against 35-year-old Eugene Lanza for theft of a bicycle from the Queen Street Police Station. The bike, valued at $299, is property of Tanisha Davis, a WPC that does police work in various communities in the city.

Lanza was arraigned on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on a count of theft. According to Lanza, who claims to be a laborer at the KHMH, he arrived at home and upon arriving there, there was an incident. As a result, he got on his bicycle and went to make a report at the Queen Street Police Station. After making the report, he got back on his bike but it was not until he got home that he noticed he had the wrong bike. According to Lanza, his intoxication at the time led to him taking the wrong bicycle.

In court where Lanza appeared before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford, he pleaded not guilty to the charge and was offered bail in the sum of $600 plus on surety of the same which he was able to meet. He is due back in court on March 13, 2018.
