Sandro Montejo, burglar, didn’t make bail

Twenty-two year old Sandro Montejo, a resident of Sand Hill Village, is tonight on remand at the Belize Central Prison after appearing in Magistrate’s Court today where he was arraigned for Burglary.  Montejo is accused of breaking into the home of Francisco Gomez between July twentieth and twenty-fourth and stealing a selection of items totaling a little less than four thousand dollars.  He was additionally charged with one count of handling stolen goods when he was found in possession of an electric saw, a DVD player, and a flat screen television, among other items valued at one thousand, one hundred and fifty dollars.  Montejo, who appeared unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to both charges and was offered bail in the sum of four thousand dollars, plus one surety of the same amount.  He was unable to meet bail by four o’clock this evening and was returned to prison until his next court date on August thirty-first.
