Luis Tun Gets Bail

Luis Tun

In the Supreme Court, a man who is accused of holding up a farmer at gunpoint and robbing him of his vehicle, farm equipment and produce worth over twenty-eight thousand dollars was today granted bail. Luis Tun’s attorney, Hurl Hamilton convinced Justice Antoinette Moore that he has no reason to flee the jurisdiction. He was offered bail of ten thousand dollars in two sureties of five thousand dollars.  The bail is on the condition that Tun reports to the Benque Viejo Police every week, does not interfere with the prosecution’s witness and returns to court at its next scheduled session.  Tun is accused along with three others of ambushing Alejandro Uk while he was driving his pickup truck on a road about two miles away from Chial Farm community in the Cayo District on September seventeenth. Tun and his accomplices allegedly emerged from nearby bushes and pointed guns at Uk, forced him out of his vehicle, pushed him to the ground and ordered him not to move or he would be shot. The men then drove off with the vehicle and its contents.  The vehicle was found abandoned in the Santa Rosa area.
