2 Charged for Moon Grocery Robbery

Rikish Rhaburn

A pair of Belize City teenagers has been remanded to the Central Prison in connection with the armed robbery of Moon Grocery Store on Coney Drive, located up the street from Channel Five. Eighteen-year-old Rikish Rhaburn of Amara Avenue and nineteen-year-old Kentroy McKoy, of Cleghorn Street, were read three counts of robbery before Magistrate Khadeen Palmer. Over the weekend, fifty-year-old businessman Guo Jin Li reported that about three-forty p.m., three men entered the store, one of whom was armed with a handgun, demanding money.

As a result, Li handed over seven hundred dollars in cash. The culprits then robbed a customer in the store, Herbert Metzgen of Sandhill, of his wallet and personal documents along with a small amount of cash. Rhaburn and McKoy pleaded not guilty but were denied bail after being unable to provide special reasons why they should be granted bail in the first instance. They were remanded until their next court appearance in August.
