7 years for burglarizing Spoonaz Café

Derrick Garbutt was sentenced to 7 years in prison on Tuesday. Garbutt was charged for the burglary of Spoonaz Cafe on North Front Street in Belize City in May of last year.  Garbutt was caught on security cameras and so prosecution had clear, visual evidence of Garbutt breaking into the cafe and stealing several bottles of alcohol and a pellet gun valued at a total of $1750. Garbutt, who is already serving time for a previous burglary conviction, will only have to serve 6 years of this sentence because he was remanded into custody for 1 year before the trial.vlcsnap-00147
