Scrubbie and Elan White Charged for Robbery

Two Belize City men stand accused of robbing a businessman of his firearm on Friday morning.  Twenty-four-year-old Edward Saldano and twenty-one-year-old Elan White, a maintenance worker of Ladyville, were charged jointly for robbery after they allegedly held up Dennis Morey and stole a Smith and Wesson brand revolver from him.  The duo appeared unrepresented in the lower courts earlier today where they pleaded not guilty to the charge.  On January nineteenth, sixty-four-year-old Dennis Morey visited Precinct One where he reported to police that sometime after 8:30 that morning he was approached by a pair of men riding on separate bicycles.  According to the villager from San Juan, one of the men placed a gun at his head while his accomplice proceeded to relieve him of the revolver.  This afternoon, Assistant Commissioner of Police Hilberto Romero spoke on the incident.
