A Lindener who allegedly stole a car was remanded to prison by Magistrate Clive Nurse on Wednesday, following an appearance at the Linden Magistrate’s Court.
Denzil Bentick of Lot 394 One Mile, Wismar, Linden, is accused of stealing a Toyota AT 192 motorcar bearing licence plate number PLL 9006 on August 14 at Potaro road, Mackenzie, Linden. The motorcar, which is valued G$1 million, is the property of Uroy Major.
The prosecution’s case stated that on the day in question, the Virtual Complainant (VC) parked the car at his girlfriend’s home around 01:30h but when he checked for the vehicle at about 05:07h, he realised it was missing. The matter was then reported to the Mackenzie Police Station and an investigation was launched. Based on investigations, the Police went in pursuit of the 24-year-old in whose possession the car was found.
He was then arrested and charged for the offence. However, the defendant disagreed with the facts presented to the court, stating that he returned to Linden from Georgetown at approximately 11:45h on the day in question and saw someone else with the stolen motorcar while passing at a location but did not revealed how he came into possession of the stolen car.
He was remanded to prison.
The case will continue on August 31.
