A man who was found guilty of stealing a Samsung Galaxy phone was jailed for three months when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Friday.
Sheik Majid of Georgetown pleaded not guilty to the allegation when it was read to him by Magistrate Annette Singh.
It is alleged that on August 16, 2016 at the Route 42 Minibus Park, he stole one Samsung Galaxy phone valued $140,000, property of Leon Curt.
The prosecution contended that on the day in question, the virtual complainant (VC), Curt, was sitting in a bus when he took out his phone, used it and then returned it to his shirt pocket. The defendant passing in another bus snatched the phone from his shirt pocket while the bus drove away.
Majid was later arrested and charged for simple larceny.
