Empress Williams, 22, charged with $2,000 theft

BELIZE CITY, Fri. Jan. 25, 2019– Empress Williams, 22, a resident of 171 Antelope Street Extension, was charged with 2 counts of theft of an amount that totaled $2,000, when she appeared today before Magistrate Emerson Banner.

 She pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on a bail of $1,500; her case was adjourned until March 16.

The thefts occurred on January 12 and January 13. Constable Patrick O’Brien, 35, reported to the police that between January 12 and January 13, a total of $2,000 was withdrawn from his account at Belize Bank without his authorization.

He said the culprit used his ATM bank card to make the withdrawals.

On January 23, he went to Belize Bank and was shown video footage of the person, and he identified her as Williams.

But Williams has denied that she took the money without authorization. She said that O’Brien was paying her for sexual favors.
