By Aaron Humes: A man’s best friend – his $450 black-and-white spotted pitbull dog – remains missing, but police have charged the alleged dog-napper.
Jaleel Jenkins, 20, a Customs Department Guard from Western Paradise, Belize District, appeared charged with theft before Magistrate Stephanie Gillett.
The alleged theft occurred on Monday, January 6, but according to Jenkins, the dog followed him around and he had no idea it had an owner – Kevin Tillett.
Jenkins pleaded not guilty and was released on bail and a surety of $1,500. He returns to court on February 14.
