Keith Burgess Charged for Burglary

On Thursday, a 53-year-old Caye Caulker man, who was caught in the act burglarizing a home on the island, was arraigned in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, on a single count of burglary.

He is 53-year-old Keith Burgess.

On Monday of this week, Mr Burgess was caught in the act on a surveillance camera, after stealing 20 whole lobsters from inside the business place of Bamboose Beach Bar & Grill.

Keith Burgess broke both his feet, allegedly, when he jumped off the roof of the business place he was burglarising.

Mr Burgess dragged himself on the ground using his knees when he went to court on Wednesday, saying he refused the crutches as they hurt him more.

Keith Burgess, who was unrepresented, appeared before Magistrate Dale Cayetano and was read a single charge of burglary.  He pleaded not guilty to the charge and was offered bail in the sum of $1,000 plus one surety of the same.

Keith Burgess is due back in Court  on December 9, 2014.
