[] – A 24-year-old man of Fourth Street, Alberttown, Georgetown, was remanded to prison for the offence of larceny.

Anthony Charles pleaded not guilty to the charge before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry. The Court heard that on February 06 at Georgetown, he stole from Paramadai Sukhoo one Samsung cellular phone valued $ 120,000.

Police Prosecutor Bharat Mangru told the court that on the day in question, Sukhoo and her mother were in a bus when Charles pushed his hand through the window and snatched the cellular phone. The man then made good his escape.

The matter was adjourned to April 24.



  1. The victim , the police , the prosecutor and the magistrate wasting a lot of time, Granger gon soon loose the cell phone thief and seh that he should be in school. The victim would do better to put some money waan side to help send the bandit to school otherwise the bandit coming foh he next phone.

  2. Most if not all the bandits, thieves, choke n robbers, pick poketers, snatchers, trunkers, call them by whatever name, they all come from different areas of Georgetown and its outlying areas. They are all lazy scumbags. Locking them up awaiting trial give them the opportunity to focus on different strategies to carry on the same activities once released. The suggestion made by Bakar seems an attractive alternative.

  3. 20 Lash ma rass…they want to be made to pick up garbage around the city and highways only during sunny days from 10am to 2pm for 30days, when mother sun is in her finest glory and we only giving them 1 glass of water and dry buns and a 15 minutes rest when you turn in 25lbs of trash and we holding them n the lock ups until they sentence served. I bet ya nuff of them would go look work..

  4. one time i held on to one of them hand while i was in a car with the window down..i think it broke..i swear i heard the bone breaking..the driver didnt want to stop let me deal with him the proper why..they love to push their hand in vehicles—-grab and disappear into the crowds..he sould get some good lash in he backside..not jail…20 lash wid de balata…u bet he wont push his hand in any vehicle to grab again ..
