Belize City man breaks into All Saint’s Primary School
A man was arraigned this morning in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court for burglarizing All Saint Primary School on Thursday night. King’s Park Resident, Kenroy Coote, was arrested over the weekend after he was caught red-handed with items stolen from the school. In recent weeks, the police department has noticed an uptick in school break-ins and has heightened its surveillance efforts. Police Press Officer, Assistant Superintendent of Police Fitzroy Yearwood, explained that Coote’s arrest is a win not only for the police but the community as a whole.
ASP. Fitzroy Yearwood, Public Relations, Belize Police Department: “Over the weekend we detained Kenroy Coote for a burglary at All Saints Primary School. We noticed that many primary schools in the city have been targeted and Mr.Coote is no stranger to the law. He has been sent to jail on several occasions for burglary in the Kings Park area. This report was made last week Friday and Mr.Coot was detained over the weekend. We got back a projector that he stole from the classroom but we’re still waiting to get back a black Lasko fan that he also took out that classroom. The reason I’m highlighting this is because we need to stop these people from depriving our children of the equipment that they need to get their education. And when persons target these primary schools they don’t only affect the students but they affect the community on a whole so hopefully Mr.Coote will be charged and arraigned today.”
