All 4 Accused in Theft at Treasury Receive Bail

David Enriquez, Francis Palacio, Hassan Palacio and Octaviana Lopez…Police believe all four are involved in the bold theft of half a million dollars from the government treasury. Enriquez, charged with theft, received bail a week ago. Hassan Palacio and Francis Palacio, charged with handling stolen goods, also received bail a week ago. And this morning Octaviana Lopez, the last of the quartet, charged with handling stolen goods, was granted bail in absentia by Justice Troadio Gonzalez. Justice Gonzalez pointed out that when he offered bail to Francis Palacio in the sum of four thousand dollars, the prosecution had neglected to tell him the quantum of the monies involved. But he has since become aware that the theft involves hundreds of thousands of dollars. With that, he offered Lopez bail in the sum of twenty-five thousand plus two sureties in the sum of twelve thousand, five hundred dollars each. We note that Lopez was not in Court today as she has been admitted to the hospital in Dangriga.
