By BBN Staff: A Burrell Boom resident is out on bail after allegedly stealing a violation ticket booklet from a police checkpoint.
Thirty-two-year-old Giselle Pilgrim appeared unrepresented in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday to answer to a single charge of theft.
She pleaded not guilty and was granted bail in the sum of $1,200 plus one surety of the same, which she managed to meet.
She is due back in court on June 17.
The allegation against her is that on April 14, she was in a vehicle along with several other women when they were stopped at a checkpoint on the Philip Goldson Highway.
Pilgrim received a ticket for a traffic violation when the other women in the car began behaving boisterously and the officer left Pilgrim in the police booth to go and calm them down.
After Pilgrim and the group had left, the officer then said she noticed that the ticket book was missing.
In court, Pilgrim told the Magistrate that the police officer who came to search her home lied to her and said that if he did not find the booklet during his search she would not be charged.
She contends that police never found the book on her or evidence to suggest that she was in possession of it, but they charged her anyway.
