3 women beat chain snatcher

An eight hundred dollar gold chain was snatched from Janice Leslie on Saturday, but her two friends did not let the thief get away. Thirty-year-old Moses Conorquie was arrested and he was arraigned late Monday evening in the courtroom of Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer. Conorquie is charged with Robbery and Wounding. According to police, they responded to reports of a fight in progress in the Pound Yard bridge area and arrived to find three women struggling with a man, who was later identified as Conorquie. The chain snatcher attempted to escape, but he didn’t get far before police caught up with him. In court, the prosecutor objected to bail due to the fact that Conorquie has as many as ten previous convictions and is likely to strike again if he is released.  Conorquie asked for bail to be granted because recently got a job that he doesn’t want to lose. Unfortunately he doesn’t want to give up his current profession, so Senior Magistrate Frazer upheld the objection and he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until December thirtieth.

    We need the PRISON FARM…aka …THE SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION CENTER…

    There he (Mr. Conorquie) COULD EARN HIS KEEP and CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY AT NO COST TO TAX-PAYERS.

    He could GROW FOOD FOR SCHOOL LUNCHES…BUILD DESKS and CHAIRS for SCHOOLS and GOV offices….he could lead A VERY PRODUCTIVE LIFE @ THE SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION CENTER.
