Messenger charged with theft of deposits

A Belize City messenger missing from work for the past three months has been arrested and charged with theft. According to court reports, up until June eighth, twenty year old Shane Gillett was a part time employee at Maya Travel Services. On that day, the staff supervisor says she gave Gillett instructions to pick up a bank draft for just under two thousand dollars, make a cash deposit of twelve hundred and fifty dollars, and deposit a cheque for thirty four thousand dollars … transactions that were all supposed to take place at the FirstCaribbean International Bank on Albert Street. But Gillett never made it to the bank and when he didn’t show up for work two days later, his bosses reported the incident to police. Gillett has plead not guilty to the charge and was remanded to custody until October seventh.
