Kitty businessman granted $500,000 bail over alleged theft of wash plant


A Kitty businessman found himself before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Tuesday after he allegedly stole a $10 million wash plant (used for crushing rocks into smaller sizes).

Thirty two year old, Vickram Singh of Lot 42 Station Street, Kitty denied the allegation put to him by Magistrate Fabayo Azore.

He denied that between Febraury 1-15 2018 at King Street, Republic Park, he stole the wash plant from Maria Feguira.

The accused reportedly was entrusted with transporting the said machine but failed to do so.

As such, Police Prosecutor, Simone Payne asked that substantial bail be granted and requested for the defendant to report to the East La Penitence Police Station on a weekly basis. She also asked that Singh lodge his passport at the Court as he operates a business in the interior location.

His representing Attorney, Lesley Benjamin however made an application for reasonable bail given the fact that her client was willing to adhere to the other requests by the Prosecution.

As such, bail was granted in the sum of $500,000. He is expected to make his next Court appearance on April 16 2018.
