John FullerJohn Fuller,19 appeared in Magistrate’s court on Tuesday July 5th accused of breaking three glass louvers at the Magistrate’s court.

The incident occurred on Monday, July 4th at around 11:30 a.m. After three days in lock down for an ammunition offense, 9 persons, including Yvonne Meyers; her son, 24-year-old Alrick Olivera; Kenrick Olivera, 22; along with Byron James, 22 and 20-year-old Albert Bowen and three minors ages 2-16 and a 14-year-old female; all students were charged with kept unlicensed ammunition. They were found at #76 Neal’s Pen Road in Belize City where police found 2 12 gauge cartridges along with 2 rounds of Federal steel brand ammunition.

At the time of their appearance Fuller told Magistrate Aretha Ford on Monday July 4th that the ammunitions belonged to him and that at the time of the police search he was not at home and that was why he was not charged along with the others. He nonetheless pleaded guilty of possession of the ammunition but the magistrate did not accept the plea. Enraged, fuller then broke 3 glass louvers at the court for which he was charged with damage to property.

When he reappeared on Tuesday he wasted no time and pleaded guilty to the offences. Magistrate Albert Hoare imposed a noncustodial sentence being a fine of $300 plus a $5.00 cost of court to be paid by August 5th in default 3 months imprisonment.
