Marlon HarrisA Belize City carpenter was remanded to the Belize Central Prison after he was accused of pulling a gun at another person.

32-year-old Marlon Harris, a resident of #138 Vernon Street, was arrested by police and appeared in the Magistrates Court before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith. Harris was unrepresented when he answered to a single charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon upon Jolene Petillo.  He pleaded not guilty to the charge but due to the nature of the offense bail was denied and he was remanded to the Hattieville Prison until November 17th.
