Gilroy Goodger, 25, is no stranger to police and he was detained shortly after Shoukot Ali and Shibbir Hmed reported that they were held up and robbed at gunpoint on Wednesday, July 23. The men reported to police that a man held them at gunpoint and took away their cellular phones. Hmed’s cellphone is valued at $400 and Ali’s is valued at $75.

Goodger was escorted to the Belize City Magistrates Court on Tuesday, July 29, where he pleaded not guilty to two counts of robbery before Magistrate Herbert Panton. Since the crime was allegedly committed using a firearm, bail was denied and Goodger was sent to the Belize Central Prison on remand. He is scheduled to appear for trial on September 17.

Goodger was out on bail from a robbery charge that dates back to September 29 of 2013. On that Sunday, Goodger allegedly punched Sheng-Jye Jou in the face and robbed him of his cellphone valued at $400. He was released on bail by Magistrate Dale Cayetano.
