A clothes vendor was today (Tuesday) granted $30,000 bail by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan when he appeared before her at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court accused of stealing a gold band.
It is alleged that Ceon David, 37, of Lot 164 Charlotte Street on April 2 on Regent Street, Georgetown, stole from Godfrey Thomas one gold band valued at $200,000 property of Godfrey Thomas. David denied the charges.
The prosecutor did not object to bail in the matter after taking into consideration, that the stolen item was recovered by the Virtual Complainant (VC).
The defendant told the court that on the day in question he and a Police officer got into a scuffle on Regent Street because he (the policeman) was ‘troubling’ his girlfriend, which resulted in him being arrested and falsely accused of robbery.
Magistrate McLennan granted the defendant $30,000 bail and adjourned the matter to April 25.
