By Aaron Humes: Police have arrested and charged 38 year old Anthony Morris, Jr., customer care representative of Simon Lamb Street, Belize City, in connection with a burglary at the main office of Angelus Press Limited on Queen Street – right across from Precinct 3, the Queen Street Police Station.
Morris, with attorney Richard “Dickie” Bradley, pleaded not guilty to the charge this afternoon before Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith.
However, police say that surveillance camera footage and Morris’ own statements link him to the theft of a safe containing more than a thousand dollars in cash.
The safe itself is valued at 3 thousand dollars; the money was kept in three cash pans. The safe also contained a gift certificate book for Angelus Press.
The incident was said to have taken place during the Easter holidays, between 1:00 p.m. on Holy Thursday March 24 and 7:00 a.m. the following Monday when the store was reopened for business.
