The two allegedly stole two cell phones and a cap, all totaling $820
This morning, Justin McFoy, 19, and a minor, both residents of #16 Wilson Street, were each charged with three counts of robbery when they appeared before Magistrate Clive Lino.
According to police, Kaylie Bailey, Clive Hyde and Aaron Smith were leaving a club located near the Princess Hotel on August 18, 2013. As they exited the club, they were approached by the two robbers, one of whom then pointed a gun at them and demanded what they had.
The three handed over a ZTE Boost Mobile touch screen cell phone valued at $400; a blue-colored LG brand cell phone valued at $350; and a grey NEW ERA cap valued at $70, all totaling $820 in value.
The two pleaded not guilty to the three charges and were unrepresented in court. However, the minor’s mother was present when he was arraigned.
Although they pleaded not guilty, because the alleged crime was committed with the use of a firearm, they were not offered bail and Mcfoy was remanded to the Belize Central Prison and the minor to the Princess Royal Youth Hostel.
They are scheduled to appear back in court on October 16, 2013.
