By Aaron Humes: Robert Smith, 23, a resident of St. Ann’s village near Maskall in the Belize district, must explain how he was found in possession of stolen items reported as missing hours earlier from a break-in in nearby St. Ann’s.
He is accused of breaking into the residence of 58 year old Andy Boddy and stealing $389 in assorted items, handling various of those items, and also for possession of 16 grams of marijuana, pleading not guilty before Senior Magistrate Tricia Pitts Anderson.
Boddy reported the theft to police on July 27, when the burglar entered his residence through a back door.
The resident police officer in Maskall got the luckiest of breaks when at a shop in the village, he saw the accused Smith wearing the stolen Germany football jersey and cap. A search uncovered a stolen cell phone, wooden-handled knife, flash drive and the weed in his pockets.
Smith was denied bail and remanded until September 3.
