This afternoon, 30-year-old Jarrett Crawford of Raccoon Street, Belize City and 21-year-old Albert Wagner of Lords Bank Village were arraigned in the Orange Walk Magistrate’s Court where they were read a single charge of robbery. The charge stems from an armed robbery at Mr. Yan’s Store in the Trial Farm Village on Saturday Night. As we reported, 43 year old Yan Cui was at the cashier serving customers when Wagner and Crawford entered the store bare-faced pretending to patronize the store. One of the men pulled out a firearm and pointed it at the customers while the other man jumped behind the counter and helped himself to $2,000.00 cash, $1,000.00 worth of Smart and Digicell phone cards and one cell phone valued at $1,300.00.
In court today, Magistrate Murlene Moody denied the men bail and sent them on remand until their next court date which is set for November 9th, 2015. Of note is that according to the August 5th edition of the Amandala Newspaper, Jarrett Crawford along with four others were charged for the armed robbery of First Caribbean International Bank. The men who were remanded were given bail on September 30th on the basis that there was no evidence against them.
