Jamil Meighan, 25-year-old Construction Worker of Ivory Street in Belize City, and Wilfred Javier Stanley, 30-year-old Stevedore of Neal’s Pen Road, have been arrested and charged in connection with the burglary of Janelle Reyes’ West Landivar home.

According to police, Janelle Reyes reported that sometime between the hours of 8:30 p.m., on April 9, 2014 and 10:30 a.m. on April 12, 2014 her home located at #6017 Freshman Lane, West Landivar Area, was burglarized and an assortment of jewelry was stolen. Police in investigation led them to pick up Jamil Meighan for the burglary. While no one linked Meighan to the scene of the burglary, he allegedly confessed to the crime and informed police that he had given the items to his friend, Wilfred Stanley. Stanley was later tracked down and detained.

According to police, several of the items stolen from the scene were pawned by Stanley at three different pawn shops: JEC Co. Ltd, JL’s Pawn Shop and Monica’s Pawn Shop. Stanley allegedly pawned two gold chains value $200 each, one Tiffany designed gold bracelet value $500, a pair of small hoop earrings value $225, a gold ring with diamonds value $3,000, a pair of heart shaped hoop gold earring value $750, pair of gold earring and gold round medal value $2,000, a pair of Channel earring value $250 and one Tiffany designed gold chain value $1,500. Police say that jewelry valuing $10,930 of the $11,155 that was stolen have been recovered. Stanley was charged with six counts of handling stolen goods for making six different stops at the pawn shops. He was unrepresented in court before Magistrate Dale Cayetano and pleaded not guilty to all counts. There was no objection to bail which was offered in the sum of $6,000 plus one surety of the same amount. His case was adjourned until July 22, 2014.
