They pleaded not guilty to the offenses. The Prosecution objected to bail based on the seriousness and the prevalence of the offense, pointing out that none of the items were recovered.

Chief Magistrate McLennan placed the three men on $100,000 bail each and they scheduled to make their next court appearance on November 25 at the Linden Magistrate’s court.

  1. One is only guilty if there’s evidence associated to prove that all three committed these crimes + lock up one on put them on 100.00 bail with no evidence but that’s the Guyana government put justice will prevail

  2. These three released ”men on bail”seem to have a lot of cash to escape remand. At that age to have $100,000 can only mean one thing; they ”work” very long and hard and were extremely prudent when it comes to spending.And obviously, it depends on what form of employment they were engaged in. Where did they get that large sum of money? They are now back into the community to carry on their trade. No wonder the police is now setting up a Special Repeat Offenders Department.
