Friday, January 30, 2015. AARON HUMES Reporting: 22 year old Joshua Conorquie is accused of stealing from a friend of his who accidentally forgot a knapsack at his Belize City residence on West Collet Canal.
The male secretary pleaded not guilty to a charge of theft before Magistrate Herbert Panton and met bail of $500.
According to Ramir Villanueva, around New Year’s Day he went alone to Chetumal, Mexico and on his return visited Conorquie, but he could not stay for long as he had to catch a boat to Caye Caulker.
However, he was in a hurry and forgot the knapsack which contained one pair of Jordan brand slippers, one pair of Jordan brand tennis shoes, one Sean John t-shirt and one snap back hat.
The total value of the items was $450.
Villanueva says he later contacted Conorquie by phone around January 16 asking about the knapsack and Conorquie told him that he took too long to come for it, so he sold the knapsack and its contents.
Conorquie denied selling the items and said he accompanied Villanueva to Chetumal but did not explain what happened to the knapsack afterward.
The case goes back to court on April 14.
