Third Accused to Face Charges in Holdup at T Supermarket

Dorian Blair

A third person has been detained and is expected to be charged for the brazen robbery of “T” Supermarket in Lord’s Bank Village last Monday. The proprietor Jing Xiao Tan reported to police that he was robbed at gunpoint on Monday night of three thousand, two hundred dollars in cash, and his licensed nine millimeter pistol. But the crime was caught on surveillance camera and by Tuesday, twenty-one-year-old Dorian Blair was arraigned for the crime of robbery and handling stolen goods when he was found in possession of a laptop stolen from the home of Edgar Young, another Ladyville resident. Today, Assistant Superintendent Cocom told News Five that Blair’s alleged accomplices in the robbery of “T” Supermarket have been detained; while one has been charged and the other charges are pending.

“So far two persons have been arrested; Dorian Blair, a twenty-one year old of East Collet Canal address, Belize City along with Tyrell Smith, twenty-two year old – both have been charged for that robbery. As we speak, we have another person in custody and when we go through the process, he is likely to be charged for that robbery.”

“Sir now I know that you have three…I think Dorian was charged and a second thereafter. Is it that you guys are having issues with locating these persons?”

“Yes, actually the other culprit was detained at the magistrate court. He had a case at court; he went before the Magistrate’s Court and we detained him then.”


When he appeared before the court last week, Blair was remanded to prison until February thirty-first, 2017 because it is alleged that the robbery was committed with a firearm.
