Employee steals the family jewels

Chrysanthus Cal

Thirty-nine year old Chrysanthus Cal, a handyman employed by the Simon Quan family was today convicted of two counts of handling stolen goods. The goods in question are a diamond ring and a pair of gold earrings which are the property of Edith Quan stolen between June twenty-eighth and June twenty-ninth. Cal was arrested after Police located the diamond ring at a pawn shop in his name, while the pair of gold earrings was found at his house. In his defense, Cal told the court that he was innocent because he found the jewelry in a bag at the foot of the steps of Quan’s residence.  He says he had no idea what to do with them and that’s why he kept them for two and a half weeks before disposing of the diamond ring. Cal was convicted before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith and sentenced to one year on each count, but his sentences will run concurrently so he will serve only one year behind bars.

    If it was not for the Aliens (like you call it ) Belize wouldn’t even have a citrus,banana,cane and cattle industry,the aliens like you ( MODERATORDELETED) call it are the once who bring all the fruits and veggies to your table ,they are the once who harvest it and make sure it is taken to your should be f…….g thank full that “aliens “work as hard as they do ,because the Belizeans are so lazy that they rather piss ina bucket than walk to the toilet.Very few Belizean are there that work hard and just because one “Alien ‘ did something wrong ,does not mean that all of them do.I personally have help many Belizeans because I am Belizean, but they do not appreciate nada,they would rather leave the flour to get spoiled than make the tortillas .
