Solomon Smith appeared unrepresented in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, where he was read a single charge of burglary.

In court, Smith pleaded guilty, explaining that he saw some people stealing from the school and joined them. He said he never broke into the building, and just stretched his hand through a window and pulled the items out. Smith is accused of taking a 5-gallon water bottle, two garbage bins, five rolls of toilet paper, a hand soap, a case of pencils, a pack of pens, a pink rubber boots, two alcohol, one paper towel, a brown paper, one orange extension cord, one multiple outlet, a pink water bottle with white cover, a first-aid kit, a child’s face mask, one liquid soap, one paper towel, a pair of black speakers, a pack of soap powder, all to a total of $705.00.

His case was adjourned until October 24. He could face a minimum of seven years in prison upon conviction; however, his sentence is left to the discretion of the Magistrate after considering the factors of the case.

The incident happened on October 11 and was caught on surveillance camera. The principal identified Smith from the video footage, noting to police that she has known him for at least two years.
