Electrician steals car battery

Edward Neal

A Belize City electrician is out on bail after being charged for the theft of a car battery from inside a vehicle belonging to Errol Garbutt.  The grey Chevy Tracker was reportedly parked overnight in front of a home on North Creek last Wednesday.  At about four-ten a.m., early the following morning, Garbutt was informed that someone had tampered with his vehicle and upon making checks; he noticed that his car battery, valued at three hundred dollars, was missing from inside the vehicle.  Garbutt subsequently reported the incident to police and requested court action.  This morning, thirty-four-year-old Edward Neal, who was unrepresented, appeared before Magistrate Hettie-Mae Stewart to answer to a single charge of theft.  Neal pleaded not guilty to the charge before being offered bail in the sum of nine hundred dollars, plus one surety of the same amount.   Neal was also ordered to stay away from Garbutt and he is not to interfere with any of Garbutt’s family members or any of the witnesses in the case.
