Edward Henry Alexander Wilfred Garcia Ernest Smith Conorquie, a 21-year-old construction worker of Vernon Street in Belize City, appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court where he was arraigned on a single charge of robbery with a firearm. He appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Michelle Trapp where he pleaded not guilty to the charge saying that it was not him that committed the crime. He also said that he denied participating in an identification parade because he felt it would be unfair. But because he was unable to give a special reason to why he should be granted bail, he was denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until December 28, 2018.

According to the victim, 38-year-old Bernard Louis Timmons, on May 31, 2018 while on Mahogany Street, someone pointed a firearm at him and forcefully relived him of a Cuban link 14-karat chain valued at $4,000, a wallet and cash, several identification cards, and a bunch of keys for a black Infinity vehicle valued at $300, all to a total of $4,610.00.

If convicted, Conorquie could very well face a prison term of 5-10 years.
