Fisherman charged for knife and drugs

Posted: Monday, March 4, 2024. 7:49 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: A Belize City fisherman is out on bail after he was allegedly busted with an 8-inch knife in the wee hours of the night as well as suspected crack cocaine and marijuana.

Trevor Albert Gill, 40, a fisherman of a Pen Road address and Consuelo Street, Belize City is accused of having 9.4 grams of crack cocaine; 51.7 grams of marijuana, and an 8-inch knife while on a public road, Peter Seco Street, Belize City between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., to wit, 2:50 a.m.

The law states that a person cannot be found with an article with a blade between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., or they can face charges.

In court, Gill, who was unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to all three charges. There was no objection to bail and so the sitting Senior Magistrate offered him bail in the sum of $3,000 plus one surety of the same amount which he met.

Gill is to report to the Mahogany Street Police Sub-Station every Friday effective March 8, 2024; Gillett must also not be arrested and charged with any other offenses while out on bail or his bail will be revoked.

Gill is back in court on May 1, 2024, which this year is not a public and bank holiday (Labour Day will be observed on April 29).
