[www.inewsguyana.com] – Two men accused of stealing a man’s horse appeared before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry on Friday, January 23.
Danny Narine and Charles Romeo, a horse cart operator of Lot 231 Kaneville, East Bank Demerara pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that between December 24 and December 25, 2014 at Lamaha and Cowan Streets they stole Orandi Ramalho’s $180,000 stallion.
Police Prosecutor Michael Grant explained that on Christmas Eve day, Ramalho tied his horse on a vacant land and left it there to graze. When he returned on Christmas day, the animal was gone.
Grant said the matter was reported and after a diligent search, the horse was found in Romeo’s possession. According to Grant, the horse cart operator told the Police ranks that Narine sold him the stallion.
He said that Narine confessed to stealing the animal.
Grant objected to bail. The Court heard that Narine was previously charged with simple larceny in relation to some cattle at the Providence Magistrates’ Court.
Narine was remanded to prison while Romeo was released on $50,000 bail. Their matter was transferred to Magistrate Annette Singh and will be called on Monday January 26.
