Saturday, August 22, 2015. BMG: Four men accused of robbing First Caribbean Bank in Belize City in July and a fifth man charged with conspiracy to commit robbery along with the others were each released on bail of $8,000 each by Supreme Court Justice Antoinette Moore.
Of the group, 33 year old Jermaine Belgrave, 22 year old Patrick Jones, 30 year old Jarett Crawford and 32 year old Erwin Castillo have met bail.
Only 24 year old Emmerson Skyers has not met bail, because he owes a court fine of $205 which has to be paid before he can get bail. The Crown objected to bail on the grounds that the offence has become prevalent and that there is the possibility that the offence will be repeated if they are granted bail.
But after Justice Moore heard submissions from the accused men’s attorneys, Leroy Banner and Bryan Neal, she offered them bail.
