Thieves break into Gadgets Store, but didn’t notice security cameras

Samuel Halliday

A band of suspected thieves responsible for stealing a little over seventy-three thousand dollars in electronics from Lebanese businessman Bassem Chakaraun appeared before Magistrate Dorothy Flowers today before being remanded to the Belize Central Prison.  Sometime between seven-thirty p.m. on November twenty-sixth and one o’clock a.m. on November twenty-eighth, seven men including siblings Derrick and Darrel Pineda, Darrel Gray, Joseph Lopez, Francis Arana, Samuel Halliday and Jeremy Bernard reportedly entered Gadgets, an electronics store located at the corners of Central American Boulevard and Vernon Street, where they lifted an array of items from the store.  The burglars however, didn’t get to enjoy the proceeds of the heist as they were caught on surveillance camera in the act.  In court this morning an application to refuse bail for six of the seven accused men was upheld on the basis that evidence against three of them is strong since they were caught red-handedly.

Darrel Gray

The other accused is a minor who has since been remanded to the youth hostel.  In his defense, Darrell Gray who is a parolee, told the court that an officer involved in the case has a personal grievance against him because of  a previous misunderstanding involving a woman they both dated.  The sixteen year old, on the other hand, testified that he was picked up by police simply because he was in Gray’s company.  The group is due before the court on December thirtieth.
