[] – A Parika man found himself before the Georgetown Magistrate;s Court on Wednesday, November 25 on charges of receiving stolen items and uttering a forged document to a police officer.

The Court heard that 31-year-old Brenton Charles of Parika Outfall, East Bank Essequibo uttered a forged receipt from Universal Electronics, knowing that the receipt was false on October 2, 2015.

It was also alleged that Charles on September 2, 2015 at West Coast Demerara received stolen property, which includes two 8-inch Speakers, two audio pipes, one amplifier, two equalizers and a few other items knowing that the items were stolen or unlawfully obtained.

The man, who appeared before Magistrate Fabayo Azore, pleaded not guilty to both of the charges.

The Defense Attorney for the accused explained that his client had bought the items from another man and was unaware that the items were stolen property.

As it relates to the matter of fraud, he explained that his client denies ever issuing any receipt to the complainant, Sumar Singh.

The Attorney requested that his client be placed on a reasonable bail. The Prosecution had no objection to substantial bail and explained that their file on the matter is still incomplete.

Charles was placed on $110,000 bail inclusive for both offences and is scheduled to make his next court appearance on December 07.
