Second Man Charged in UNO Gas Station Robbery

Arthur Humes

A second man has been charged with the armed robbery of businessman Robert Pickwoad at the Uno Gas Station on February seventh. He is thirty-three-year-old auto body works mechanic Arthur Humes of Curassow Street, Belize City. Humes joins Lloyd Leslie Junior of Bocotora Street, who was previously charged in March and is out on bail. The men are accused of ambushing Pickwoad at his office at the station as he was preparing to take fifteen thousand eight hundred and seventy-eight dollars from the location to Scotia Bank. The money was contained in two Scotia Bank bags inside a purple Jansport bag and a separate cashier’s box. Pickwoad told police that one of the men who robbed him carried a black nine-millimeter pistol. Police reviewed video surveillance from the gas station showing the robbery as it occurred. Humes appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer and pleaded not guilty. He was denied bail and remanded until August fifteenth, 2017 when he returns to court.
