5 adults and 2 minors charged with burglary after police found them on roof of home on T Street taking zinc off house

By Aaron Humes: An elderly woman’s home on T Street was being stripped of its roof zinc and police say they caught the culprits in the act of the crime of burglary, levying criminal charges against seven persons including five adults and two minors.

They have been identified as 36-year-old Earl August, a construction worker of Lindos Alley; Jarren Martinez, 23, unemployed of Daly Street; Robert McClaren, 24, Call Agent of Lacroix Boulevard; Kyle Cadle, 22, an undertaker of Riverside Street, Belize City; and Glenford Lewis, 28, of Gladden Street, Belize City, along with two minors aged 13 and 17.

The group appeared unrepresented in court jointly charged with the offense of burglary. Allegations are that they entered the home of Alva Rose Pitterson at #8 T Street, Belize City, on October 22 and allegedly stole an amount of zinc roofing from the building valued at $630.

Martinez pleaded guilty while the other six pleaded not guilty, but his plea was rejected by the sitting Magistrate as he is believed to be mentally challenged. The Magistrate ordered that a psychiatric evaluation must first be conducted on him to determine his state of mind and if he is capable of understanding the court proceedings before considering accepting the plea.

Since there were no objections to bail being offered to the group by the Prosecutor, the Magistrate granted them bail in the sum of $3,000 plus two sureties of $1,500 each.

Martinez was the only defendant who was unable to post bail and so he was remanded into custody.

Pitterson told police she did not give anyone permission to remove the roofing and the group could not account for their presence.

The group of seven are due back in court on December 23.
