Mexican Nationals Remanded for SUV Theft Delayed in Court

Two Mexican nationals accused of aiding the theft of two SUVs from Budget Auto Rental are back behind bars at the Belize Central Prison tonight after there was a delay in their court case.  The men, 28-year-old Alejandro Vasquez and 37-year-old Carlos Francisco Morales Jara appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court this morning for their scheduled appearance on charges of theft and abetment to theft. They appeared along with their attorney Estevan Perrera. In court, the prosecutor informed the magistrate that he is still awaiting a directive from the Director of Public Prosecutions on how to proceed in the matter. With that, the Magistrate adjourned the case for Thursday, October 26. The men were remanded back to prison, as they are believed to be a flight risk.  The men are charged in connection with the theft of a white, 2020 Kia Sorento and a white Chevy Equinox, valued at sixty thousand dollars each, in the month of July. The vehicles were rented out at separate times and were never returned. Police have still not located the vehicles and investigations into the matter are ongoing.
