Profile jewelry robbed of a hundred and fifty grand

Guishany Wagner

There were two robbery cases before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer today and in both instances, the victims lost thousands of dollars in cash and valuables. The bigger heist was last Wednesday at Profile Jewelry inside the Commercial Center in downtown Belize City.  The culprits got away with over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars in cash and jewelry. This morning, twenty-two year old Guishany Wagner of Belize City and twenty-seven year old Alfredo Petillo of Orange Walk were arraigned on three counts of Robbery.  The first count is for allegedly robbing salesman, Edwin Garnett, of six hundred and ninety-one pieces of assorted jewelry, valued at one hundred and fifty-five thousand, six hundred and thirty-three dollars.

One hundred and thirty dollars in cash was also stolen, which along with the jewelry, was property of businesswoman, Jacqueline Gutierrez.  The second count is for a cell phone, driver license and sixty-five dollars in cash stolen from Garnett and the third is for another phone that was taken from Sheena Harriage. Garnett reported that two men entered the shop, armed with a knife and firearm, and robbed them. Due to the high value of the stolen items, no plea was taken but in court, Wagner alleged that had he been brutalized while in police custody and that he was refused medical treatment.  Senior Magistrate Frazer ordered that Wagner was to be taken to the hospital before going to prison.
