By Breaking Belize News Staff: Twenty-eight-year-old Anthony Wagner, who was charged jointly with his girlfriend 25-year-old Vanessa Morreira for firearms and drug offenses, has been denied bail at the Supreme Court.

Wagner’s bail application, presented by attorney Orson Elrington was heard on Wednesday by Justice Ricardo O’Niel Sandcroft.

While Morreira was granted bail in the sum of $25,000, Justice Sandcroft indicated that several factors influenced his decision to deny Wagner’s application.

“The judge in exercising his discretion decided against granting bail. The prevailing reason he imparted on us was that he felt that the situation in Belize so far as unlicensed firearms, especially in light of the incident leading up to the new year and to begin the new year he was particularly concerned and felt that it was necessary that he not grant bail in the circumstances,” Elrington said.

Elrington added that Justice Sandcroft has agreed to review the bail application in a month’s time, so in February, Wagner will have another opportunity to receive bail.

The couple was jointly charged on December 29 with two counts of kept unlicensed firearm, one count of kept unlicensed ammunition, one count of possession of controlled drugs with the intent to supply to another, and one count of possession of controlled drugs.
