Densfield LemottOn Tuesday, April 16, 33-year-old Densfield Lemott appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Dale Cayetano to answer to a charge of theft.

60-year-old tour guide, Errol Belisle, reported to police that he was in a Chinese shop at the corner of Raccoon and Allenby Street where he met two other men. Belisle had his wallet inside a bag while in the shop. However, when he later reached into the bag for his wallet it was missing. That was when he approached one of the men in the shop who he knew as Densfield Lemott and asked for his wallet. Lemott said he had nothing and then walked out of the shop. Belisle followed him as he walked unto West Collet Canal and that was when he saw a police mobile in the area. He stopped the police and explained to them what had occurred. When Lemott saw the police he started to run. Police caught up with him inside a yard behind the Queen Square Primary School. Police conducted a search of the area and found Belisle’s leather wallet containing $867 cash.  Lemott was arrested and charged for theft.

In Court, Lemott told the judge, “This situation I find myself in, I am wrong but the person owed me.” Magistrate Cayetano offered him bail in the sum of $4,000 plus one surety of the same amount. He was unable to meet bail and is scheduled to return to court on May 28.
