By Aaron Humes: Police have laid charges on two men in relation to a robbery in the quiet village of Mahogany Heights, Belize District, last Friday.

The store owner reported being held up by three men with firearms who stole cash and a cell phone to a total value of $2,000 from her and a customer.

Police worked the case and have charged Shaun Crawford and Jahstar Gonguez with the crime of robbery. Gonguez was picked up at a house in Seine Bight Village, where a nine-millimetre pistol was recovered in regard to the robbery report. An additional person – the owner of the house, Shanda Gonzalez – is being charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of unlicensed ammunition.

Crawford, 49, of Curl Thompson Street, appeared before a Magistrate today and pleaded not guilty. He questioned how the other person charged with the incident – Gonguez – was not also in court.

Due to the nature of the offence, bail was denied to Crawford and he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until August 23.
