Black Orchid aggravated burglary case dismissed

A case of aggravated burglary against 42-year-old Carlos Seguro, who is accused of robbing $39,000 worth of goods from the owners of Black Orchid Resort in Burrell Boom, was dismissed at the Magistrate’s Court on Monday, December 10.
Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer dismissed the case because Douglas Thompson and his wife Karen Thompson, the resort’s owners, did not appear for the trial.
Although Seguro was freed of the aggravated burglary charge, he was not free to go home, because he is serving a four-year sentence for ammunition and drug convictions. Seguro still has another two years before his sentence is completed.
The burglary occurred shortly before 9:00 p.m. on October 14, 2010 in Burrell Boom.
Thompson and his wife had just arrived home in their Dodge car and were opening the gate, when they were accosted by two men, one of whom was armed with a gun.
The two men were apparently waiting for the pair to return home.
The men forced them at gunpoint into their house and tied them up.
They then stole $1,000, one Apple Ipod, one Pentax digital camera, one Canon EOS Rebel camera, one zoom lens, one wide angle lens and one Acer laptop computer.
They put all the items in the couple’s car and drove away.
Police would later recover the car, valued at $29,000, in Hattieville Village.
Only Segura was apprehended and charged.
Police never found his partner.
