A maintenance worker attached to a poplar Mandela Avenue, Georgetown restaurant was on Friday refused his pretrial liberty by Magistrate Leron Daly when he made his first appearance in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to a simple larceny charge.
Calvin Francis, who has no fix place of adobe, denied that he stole $109,000 from his employer, Kamaci Griffith on September 12, 2018 while he was employed at Griffith’s place of business.
The prosecution is contending that on the day in question the accused was seen on Close Circuit Television (CCTV) footage entering the said restaurant and carting off with a box which contained the above mentioned sum of money.
Moreover, police prosecutor Sanj Singh informed the court that the man at the center of the allegation was also previously implicated and charged with simple larceny and robbery.
In his defence, Francis told the court that he never took the money and was only framed.
After summing up the matter Magistrate Daly remanded the man to prison until the next court hearing.
The matter will continue later in September, 2018.
