Court looks at a September trial for Rolex thiefWritten by Donna De Jesus
Guam - The man arrested for stealing Rolex watches and the man he was allegedly buying illegal prescription pills from are in the process of preparing for trial.
Vince Benito, Lucas Rebanal, Kyle Pablo, and Jay Gaza, along with their counsels, were in court to discuss a September trial date. However, Atty. Curtis Van de Veld, who represents Benito, is, so far, the only one to have received discovery in the case.
Back in January, Benito was arrested for allegedly stealing $30-thousand dollars' worth of Rolex watches, which led to a raid of Rebanal's home, whom Benito told police had been supplying him with ice and illegal prescription pills.
Atty. Van de Veld adds that it is premature to set a trial date since two other defendants have yet to appear in court: Jesus Calma, a pawnshop broker who failed to produce items for inspection, and Brian Josh Parkinson, who police say acted as the getaway driver for Benito in the Rolex theft.
The next hearing is scheduled for April 3 at 9:00 a.m. before Judge Vernon Perez.
