B.T.B. robber gets ten fines for botched robbery

Clarence Lamb

The Belize Tourism Board got a scare last Wednesday when two men—one armed with a firearm—robbed the cashier of over one thousand, seven hundred dollars in cash. But the robbery was thwarted by the quick response from security guards, when one of the robbers, twenty-two year old Clarence Lamb was shot and hospitalized under heavy police guard. Well late this evening, the resident of a Wagner’s Lane address in Belize City was discharged from hospital and taken straight to court where he hopped into Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith’s courtroom. He appeared unrepresented and was slapped with ten counts; two firearm offences for the point thirty-eight revolver he carried, one count of Robbery with a Firearm and seven counts of Aggravated Assault upon B.T.B. employees.  Lamb pleaded not guilty to all charges but due to the nature of the offences, he was denied bail and remanded to the Belize Central Prison until February twenty-eighth.  Police are still looking for a second suspect.

    This is a case where the DPP’s office if compitent, can secure a conviction and put this guy away for 30yrs or more. This guy should not be allowed to walk the streets again because he will end up killing someone, that is if he hadn’t killed before. The GOB needs to send a stern message to these loosers indicating that they will got to jail for a very, very long time if they are caught committing a crime with a gun. 2013 should be a the year when the GOB break the cycle of violence that is plaguing the nation.

    Life is so difficult these days because our GOV makes it tougher for us.
    Yes, I agree that every weekend we go partying at the bars and spend our hard earned money. And so be the case, we will never own a thing in life , then after years of partying we say “GOV NO DOING NOTHING, NO MONEY DEH”
    No money deh,yes, but if we start saving our hard earned money from today, some time in the future we will be rewarded for our little little savings.
    Of course we can do very little about all the Guatemalans working in Bz , not paying tax, and taking the money to Guatemala. Add all Guatemalan workers earnings for a day, a week, a year, and all YEARS , about how much money we are loosing to Guatemala?
    THINK, GOVERNMENT OF BELIZE, PLEASE THINK WITH YOUR HEAD NOT WITH YOUR FEET BOTTOM.
    IT IS NOT WORTH THE LITTLE MONEY YOU THE OFFICERS IN CHARGE ARE TAKING FOR BRIBE !!!

    YOU MAY LAUGH AT THIS COMMENT, BUT REMEMBER THAT SOME DAY YOU WILL BE CALLED, AND YOUR CONSCIENCE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HIDE YOU.
