Duo caught sleeping in Wesley Upper School building charged with burglary

By Aaron Humes: Whether or not there is any intention to steal or upset a building, the unlawful entry of premises constitutes part of the charge of burglary, which was levied on 20-year-old Arenal Smith and 20-year-old Clifford Thomas, both of Dolphin Street, Belize City.

Smith and Thomas appeared before Chief Magistrate Jayani Wegodapola, charged with trespassing on the premises of Wesley Upper School on Dolphin Street on June 16 with intent to steal, despite nothing actually being stolen. Police say entry was gained into the school by pulling open the main burglar bar door located on the eastern side of the building and crawling under it.

The pair pleaded not guilty and said they were simply looking for a place to sleep, not steal.

Over objections, the Chief Magistrate granted bail of $1,500 each. They are to stay away from the school and report to Racoon Street police station beginning on June 23 and avoid further arrest.

The case is due back in court on August 21.
