A 35-year-old man who stole a number of items, including a set of chairs and a mattress, was on Friday remanded to prison by Magistrate Leron Daly when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. Seon Bert denied stealing the 24 chairs, mattress and air conditioning unit with a total value of $185,000, property of Nigel Pile. Police said the offence was committed on May 1, 2018 at North Road, Georgetown.According to the facts of the matter, the virtual complainant (VC) secured his business place on April 30, 2018, but upon his return the following day, he observed that the main access door was broken. As such, checks were made and it was revealed that the items mentioned in the charge were missing. The matter was reported and an investigation was launched, thus leading to the arrest of Bert, after the stolen items were found in his possession. Police Prosecutor Sanj Singh objected to bail being granted the accused since he has no fixed place of abode. He will make his next court appearance on May 25.
