He denies he robbed a medical clinic

Darios Cruickshank

The second case before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer this morning, was in relation to a robbery which occurred at a clinic on November seventeenth, 2011. Twenty-six year old Darios Cruickshank is accused of robbing Dr. Inez Moguel at her clinic on Blue Marlin Avenue in Belize City. Dr. Moguel says that the robber met her at the door and forced her inside at gunpoint. He stole two thousand dollars from the cash register, her wedding band and a silver ring as well as an iPhone. Cruickshank, who was unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to the charge of Robbery. He says that the charge is bogus because he was recently released from prison after a firearm conviction. Cruickshank claims that when he was initially detained, he was told that his arrest was in connection with a shooting, but he was later charged with robbery.  He also alleges that his picture was shown to Dr. Moguel before he was placed in an identification parade. The case was adjourned until April eighteenth and Cruickshank was remanded to the Belize Central Prison.
