John Speer56-year-old John Speer, tenant of North Front Street Guest House, appeared in court before Magistrate Dale Cayetano to answer to a charge of burglary. Allegations are that sometime between Wednesday, April 24th, and Thursday, April 25th, he entered the room of 70-year-old John Chan, who was also staying at the guest house, and stole $800 in cash. Chan made a report to police which led to the detention of Speer and another male suspect. However, the other individual was released and Speer was charged with burglary.

In court, Speer was unrepresented and pleaded not guilty to the offense. There was no objection to bail but Speer was remanded to the Belize Central Prison because he was unable to meet a bail of $3,000 plus one surety of the same amount. His next court date is set for June 11th.
