By Aaron Humes: A pair of cousins, were accused of burglarizing Quality Used Tires on Central American Boulevard, owned by Rene Gordon; but in court today the police could not prove the charge and the two men walked.
35 year old Kenrick Pitts, aka “Snake”, along with his cousin, 35 year old Roderick Pitts, both of a Louise Bevans Street address in Belize City were charged with the burglary, which occurred between Friday, August 15, 2014 at 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, August 16, 2014 at 1:00 p.m., when 95 car tires were stolen.
