Mason gets 9 months jail over theft of gold chains, rings


A mason was on Wednesday morning jailed for simple larceny when he appeared before Magistrate Dylan Bess at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

Leon Murray, 30, originally pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to him by City Magistrate Judy Latchman in February of this year.

The charge alleged that he, on December 26, 2017, at Castello Housing Scheme, Georgetown, stole two gold chains valued $115,000, two gold rings valued $120,000 and bangles worth $15,000, a total value of $250,000 property of Shawn Solomon.

He was remanded to prison after the Police Prosecutor successfully objected to bail being granted to him noting that the defendant might not reappear at the Court.

However, when Murray appeared before Bess, he was told that the evidence against him for the offence he is being charged with is sufficient and as such he was found guilty as charged.

He was sent to prison for the next nine months.
