A trio of men was arraigned on Monday, February 5, 2018 for an armed robbery that took place at Highwayman Service Station located in the Lord’s Bank area of Ladyville. The robbery was captured on surveillance camera which led police to the arrest of the three men.

Those men have been identified as 25-year-old Jose Cocom Jr., 19-year-old Kentroy McKoy, and 21-year-old Edison Palacio, all of Belize City. The men appeared before Magistrate Kadeen Palma to answer to the charge of robbery with a firearm. The allegations are that Thursday, January 31, 2018 while at the Puma Highwayman Service Station located at Mile 9 ½ on the Phillip Goldson Highway, the men used a firearm to steal $325 cash from one of the workers at the service station.

In court where they were unrepresented, they pleaded not guilty to the charge but due to the nature of the offense, they were all denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until April 27, 2018 when a partial disclosure is expected to be given to the men.
