Staggering 117 counts of theft against former cashier at Travellers

Rashida Sedacy

A former cashier with Traveller’s Liquors Limited was arraigned today for a staggering one hundred and seventeen counts of theft. Twenty-four year old Los Lagos Resident, Rashida Kira Sedacy, who is now employed as a Secretary at Rangers Security, spent three nights in lock down at the Queen Street Police Station since her detention on Saturday.  She first appeared on Monday and was escorted again to the Belize City Magistrate’s Court where a total of one hundred and seventeen counts of theft were read to her, one by one; it took about one hundred and seventeen minutes to read out the charges.  It was a long and tedious process and in the end, Sedacy pleaded not guilty to all charges. Sedacy, who is being represented by Mayor Darrell Bradley, is accused of stealing a whopping eighty-three thousand six hundred and twenty nine dollars from Travellers Liquors in the period between January second, 2013 and August twenty-first, 2013. The information and complaint show that according to the arresting officer, Sergeant Bernard Reyes, in January 2013, Sedacy allegedly stole four times from the company.  Her busiest and most active month was allegedly in April, 2013, when nineteen counts of theft were committed.  The list of allegations in the other months show that theft was committed sometimes on a daily basis last year: in February, there were fourteen counts of theft, in March seventeen, May twelve, both June and July showed seventeen counts each and in August eleven counts.  The arraignment concluded just after eleven this morning and because the amount is over eighty-thousand dollars,  bail was set at fifteen thousand dollars plus sureties of seven thousand five hundred dollars each. She met bail his afternoon but had to first surrender her passport to the Clerk of Court. She also has to report to the Ladyville Police Station once a week and was warned to stay away from the prosecution witness or witnesses in the case. Sedacy was employed by Travellers Liquor Limited for a short period was terminated from her post as cashier.

    The lawyers in Belize who hold public office and moonlight at the bar should know better. it is a conflict of interest for them to be lawyering when they should be politicking.
    Time spent on legal cases is time spent away from the sworn duties that they should be engaged with.
