B.T.B. clerk charged for sale of invalid tour guide license

It was a busy day in court today. Twenty-two year old Rushelly Smith, a data entry clerk at Belize Tourism Board, was arrested by the police on Friday after they uncovered her alleged role in a scam to defraud the B.T.B. The incident, which occurred between September third and fifth was not detected until the fifteenth. The police received information about the sale of an invalid tour guide license which led them to Marcus Nal, in whose name the license was issued. Nal reported to the police that he obtained the license from Smith after he paid eight hundred dollars for it. Smith was charged with Obtaining Property by Deception when she appeared today in Magistrates’ Court. She pleaded not guilty to the charge and she was released today on bail of two thousand dollars. Her case was adjourned until November twenty-seventh.
