A clerk on Friday appeared before City Magistrate Judy Latchman at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to the charge of stealing $10M worth of items from his employer.
Rondell Sahadeo, 28, of Campbellville, Georgetown, was not required to plea to the charge when it was read to him.
The charge stated that between May 29 and June 4, 2016, at Omai, Essequibo River, while being a clerk for Paul Garvy, he stole 710 grams of raw gold valued $5.7M and 80 drums of diesel valued $4M, property of Paul Garvy.
Police Prosecutor Kerry Bostwick had no objections when the bail application was made.
Bail was set in at $1M and Sahadeo was ordered to return to court on September 6.
As a condition of bail, the defendant was also ordered to lodge his passport at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
