[www.inewsguyana.com] – An 18-year-old mason of Lot 35 Non Pariel, East Coast Demerara, was placed before the court for allegedly stealing a cellular phone.  

Dominic Morris pleaded not guilty to a larceny from a person charge when he made his appearance before Magistrate Faith McGusty, at the Georgetown, Magistrates’ Court.

The charge stated that on April 16 at Regent Street, Georgetown, he stole one Samsung Galaxy cellular phone, valued at $100,000, property of Melanie Deen.

According to the prosecution, Deen exited a UG bus and was speaking on her phone when Morris came up from behind and snatched the phone and ran off.

The victim gave chase whilst alerting others and Morris was caught by public spirited persons who gave him a sound beating, for committing the offence.

Bail was objected to by Police prosecutor Seon Blackman on the grounds of the nature, prevalence and penalty attached to the offence.

The prosecution’s objection was upheld and Morris was remanded to prison, until May 6.
