By Aaron Humes: After being on the lam for three months, 18-year-old Dennis Lamb on Monday turned himself into authorities along with his mother.
Fatima Lamb told reporters that police showed up at her residence looking for him on January 20th and that she has been constantly harassed ever since.
She alleges that visiting officers were rough with her younger son on a recent visit and that members of the Gang Suppression Unit (GSU) have threatened to kill Dennis if they find him first.
To avoid that, they visited police on Monday afternoon and Lamb was booked on charges of robbery, assaulting a police officer and escape.
Lamb was arraigned for the latter two charges before Senior Magistrate Tricia Pitts Anderson. He is accused of escaping lawful custody at the Racoon Street Police Station on November 16th, 2019, while being held for a robbery allegation. He was further accused of assault of Constable Linsford Augustine with a mix of water and Disiclin-brand cleaner during his break from the police.
Lamb pleaded guilty to escape but not guilty to assaulting a police officer, explaining that the police were taking advantage of him and beating him with no evidence to prove the charge of robbery. The magistrate was unable to accept the former plea and the police prosecutor objected to bail which was upheld.
Lamb next appeared before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford on a charge of robbing Vanessa Burgess whilst armed with a firearm of her purse containing $75.00 and personal items on November 12.
To this, he also pleaded not guilty and due to the nature of the offenses, he was denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until April 8, 2020.
