This afternoon the two persons arrested and charged for breaking into Horizon stationery store located on 7th Avenue around 3am on Tuesday morning were arraigned at the Magistrate’s Court.
18 year old Luis Enrique Chable and 25 year old Julio Cesar Chable, who gave G-Street addresses as their residences, were arraigned jointly for the crime of burglary.
The Police say the Chable duo were these two heavily-tattooed individuals who burglarized the store and spent hours stealing items. While inside the men were on a rampage that looks very much like a shopping spree minus the paying.
On the list of stolen goods were over 31 different items stolen in assortments including 9 caps, 1 Lenovo brand laptop, 12 eye-brow shadows, 14 assorted hairbrushes, 9 black suede perfumes, 3 wireless speakers, 4 white selfie sticks, 12 black and neon blue fruit de loom shirts, 16 mp3 players, a toy car and many more items, to a total value of $4,182.55.
In court, Luis Chable pleaded guilty to the crime, while Julio Cesar Chable pleaded not guilty.
Magistrate Lionel Olivera proceeded to sentence Luis Chable but first asked if he had anything to say in court. The 18 year old responded that he had nothing to say. Magistrate Olivera then asked if it is that he wants to spend time in prison, for not even displaying remorse for his actions. Chable then found his tongue and said that he preferred not go to prison because he must take care of his grandfather who, he said, is very sick. He then said that his actions were a big mistake.
Magistrate Olivera then fined him $5,000 plus $5 which must be paid by June 20 2020 or in default three years and a half imprisonment.
Julio Chable who pleaded not guilty was offered bail at $7,000 plus one surety of the same amount or two sureties of $3,500.
As we reported on Tuesday’s newscast, what led the Police to the suspects are the tattoos that can be seen on their arms from the surveillance footage. When they realized that they were captured on camera, they covered their faces and took down a number of cameras which were also stolen.
The Chables also reside only a short distance from the store, and according to information gathered, one of them worked on the construction of the building.
Julio Chable will return to Court on July 30th for disclosure.
