Teen charged in St. Paul?s burglary

Life in Belize’s many picturesque villages is often viewed by harassed urban dwellers as a peaceful and carefree existence untouched by the perils of crime and violence associated with city life. Tell that to seventy-five year old Wallace Rivas of St. Paul’s Bank. According to court reports, on May eighteenth Rivas was happily taking an afternoon nap in his hammock when he heard someone call his name three times. He looked around but saw no one … that is until he heard a noise in his room and went inside to investigate. It turns out that a young man he knew from birth–eighteen year old Orie Weir–had entered the building and missing from Rivas’s cash pan was two hundred forty dollars and fifty cents. Weir was not detained until this weekend and today he was charged with Burglary in Magistrate’s Court. He posted bail of five thousand dollars and will be back in court on September eighth.
