Jail for Accused Belize City Robber
Tonight twenty-five-year-old Stanley Moore, a resident of Faber’s Road, Belize City is serving his first night of a nine-year sentence for robbery with a firearm imposed upon him by Magistrate Carlon Mendoza. The armed robbery occurred on September sixteenth, 2016, upon Ashley Perez who was robbed of her bag containing a cell phone, money and jewellery. Perez testified that she was walking in the area of Roger’s Stadium on Cemetery Road when Moore pulled up behind her on bicycle, took out a firearm, pointed it at her then snatched her purse. But freedom was short-lived for Moore who was picked up soon enough. In court Moore denied he committed the robbery but there was convincing evidence that he had committed the crime. Court records also show that Moore owes the court ten thousand dollars for a drug trafficking in 2016. He will be serving a three-year sentence for that conviction, but it is not certain if it will concurrently to the nine-year sentence imposed today.
