‘Better have my money’: Construction worker accused of damaging employer’s vehicle over late pay

Posted: Wednesday, June 28, 2023. 5:03 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Delays in getting paid ended in more expenses for 22-year-old Manuel Guerra Jesus of Church Street, Belize City, who was charged for damaging his employer’s vehicle.

The incident happened on April 15 when according to Francisco Grande of Mile 1 ½ George Price Highway, Guerra arrived around 11 p.m. demanding pay for the work he, Grande, contracted him to do between April 11 and 13.

Grande said he had met Guerra earlier in the day and promised to pay him by 5 p.m. that evening, even getting a cell phone number to call him on.

But when he called the number around 4 p.m., which turned out to be that of Guerra’s mother, there was no answer even though he called it five times.

That failed to placate Guerra, who after some “hard talk” and cursing picked up two stones from the street and threw them at Grande’s parked Dodge Caliber, damaging the front windshield and left front side passenger door before riding off on a bicycle.

Guerra appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Mannon Dennison where he pleaded not guilty to a charge of damage to property.

Guerra was offered bail and is due back in court on August 15.
