A man was today remanded to prison on a simple larceny charge when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Priya Behary. Forty – six – year old Leroy Garraway of Middleton Street Georgetown pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to him.
It is alleged that on July 17 in Georgetown he stole $4,660 property of Samad Zamadeen. Police Prosecutor Vernette Pindar told the court that on the day of the incident Zamadeenwas riding a bicycle when the accused armed himself with a piece of wood and dealt him a lash to his hand and took away his money.
The matter was reported to the police and the accused was subsequently arrested and charged. Based on the prevalence of the offence and the fact that the virtual complainant sustained serious injuries, the prosecutor objected to bail and Garraway will make his next court appearance on July 31.
