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.

I came out of the shower and found Keith on my balcony. He said if I came on the balcony he would kill me.
I yelled to my wife upstairs to shoot him dead. She answered back that she need me to draw him out for a clear shot.(we have no gun).
I charged out on the balcony just as he went over the edge and was hanging. I grabbed his arm but couldn't haul him back up, so I landed hard on both hands with my heels. He fell in our concrete fountain, tried to raise up to run but couldn't. I stood there chatting with him about his future, fully naked.
The cops picked him up at dawn with stolen goods.
He arranged a cash payment and was released the next day.
His landlord paid it. I told her to collect rent in advance because the next time we wouldn't get the police involved, so he wouldn't be coming home.
He got the message and left the next day.and did a robbery that day in the city.
They beat him nearly to death.

Not necessarily a great anecdote considering the topic & situation Dane but definitely told with a certain panache!

Wow, you'd have thought after falling into your water feature he'd have been hurt enough in the first place.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

We have more history.
It is hard to steal things too big for a small bag because you needed a boat to take larger stolen goods away. He solved that problem for CC thieves with his boat and fencing biz.
When he was arrested one of the cases was a motor the cops had. They thought was my stolen one.

He jumped from the balcony during the trial and escaped.
I had overheard him planning it with a boat guy so the cops picked up his ride while it waited for him.
He hid in the bug filled bush behind my. house during a four day rainstorm.
When he got up his courage he came to my door to extort money from me.
He looked like hell.
The motor had been stolen from a guy in the city. He said he would tell the cops whose motor it was, and I would not get it unless I gave him a $1000.
I made him an offer instead. He signed a confession to stealing the motor and included the name and address of the legal owner. In return I bought him a water taxi ticket and a bottle of water.
I gave to the cops who returned the motor to its owner.
He agreed in the confession to never return to CC.
Next time I saw him was a year later on the balcony.

Dane you are a nicer guy than me. This scum would reside on CC permanently if I would have been in your shoes. Permanently 6 feet under in the cemetery. Its one thing to give a guy a break once, but repeated attempts to extort money and steal from you is going farther than I would have allowed. You are a far more tolerant and better person than I am ! !
