Alleged Bank Robber Meets Bail

Erwin Castillo

While employees of F.C.I.B. stage a sickout; in court this morning, one of five men linked to the July 2015 robbery of the bank received bail. Erwin Castillo now joins Jermaine Belgrave, Patrick Jones, Emmerson Skyers and Jareth Crawford who are out on bail granted to them on August twenty-first for robbery. Castillo’s bail was set at twelve thousand dollars by Justice Troadio Gonzalez, who also imposed conditions on Castillo to report to the Queen Street Police Station twice a week, surrender his travelling documents and not interfere with any of the witnesses. The D.P.P.’s office objected heavily to bail on the grounds that there is a strong case against Castillo for Conspiracy to Robbery, since there is an affidavit in which he states that he rented a van and dropped off the four accused men to a location before the robbery. His attorney objected to the arguments of the D.P.P.’s office and the Justice was swayed. At noon today, Castillo met bail and is due back in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on September twenty-ninth, 2015.
