[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 51 – year-old Taxi Driver appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan, charged with the offense of Simple Larceny.
It is alleged that on August 12, 2015 at Garnett Street, Georgetown, Afzal Khan of Lot 145 Bell West, Canal Number 2, stole $297,000 cash; the property of Premoroop Prashad.
The father of four pleaded not guilty to the offense. The Prosecution revealed that the virtual complainant had left his car parked on the road side and that CCTV cameras picked up the image of the accused entering his car and stealing the alleged sum of money.
The Prosecution objected to bail, pointing out that Khan is being investigated by the police for similar crimes. However, the Attorney for the accused explained that his client has so far repaid almost half of the stolen money, and is completely ready to repay the remainder of cash.
He was granted $150,000 bail and is scheduled to make his next court appearance on November 03, 2015.
