32-year-old, Raymond Lamb was in court yesterday after he was arrested for stealing over forty thousand dollars’ worth of jewellery from a hotel establishment on Ambergris Caye. The incident reportedly occurred on Saturday, July 6 when Lamb allegedly entered the home of Misty Harris and stole an assortment of items ranging from cell phones to jewellery, valued at just over forty-two thousand dollars. Lamb went before Senior Magistrate, Tricia Pitts- Anderson in Belize City due to the absence of a Magistrate on Ambergris Caye. Reports indicate that Lamb was caught red-handed in the room. Prosecutor Christopher Smith asked the magistrate to take into consideration, the prevalence of the crime of burglary in Belize; the offense in comparison to the crime of burglary; and he asked the court who has the special duty to assist the security force in combating crimes and to consider that the strength of the police case. He was unrepresented and remanded to the Belize Central Prison.
