Teen charged for Robbery

Chris Anthony Reyes

And while the chicken is far from endangered, the fate of Belize’s most vulnerable group is still undetermined. Another teenager is behind bars tonight. On Wednesday at his home, nineteen year old Chris Anthony Reyes, a resident of King Street, was allegedly found in possession of a point twenty-two caliber Lorcin Brand pistol, seven small packages of suspected marijuana and a passport belonging to Elmer Figueroa, a recent robbery victim. This morning Reyes was arraigned for Kept Firearm without a Gun License, Possession of a Controlled Drug as well as the Robbery of Figueroa, which occurred on September twelfth.  Figueroa reported to police that he was walking on King Street at around seven-forty-five when he was approached by a man, who held him at gunpoint and demanded that he hand over his bag. Figueroa gave the gunman his Nike brand knapsack which contained his Belizean passport, several electronics and other personal items; all to a total of nine hundred and sixty dollars. In court, Reyes who was unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to all charges. He has been remanded to the Central Prison until October seventeenth.

    Put that trash in jail. If you’re man enough to do the crime, then be man enough to serve the time. 5 years for the gun, 3 years for the marijuana, 3 years for robbery, and 1 year for not telling the truth in court. Son, you know very well that you lie in court when you pleaded not guilty. So dishonest.
