Man remanded for stealing 75 jerseys
A man that allegedly stole 75 jerseys made an appearance before acting Chief Magistrate, Melissa Robertson, at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court yesterday to face charges of offensive simple larceny.
It is alleged that on Monday last, Nigel Glasgow, called “Poison” of 177 Triumph, East Coast Demerara, stole 75 jerseys from Morris Ridwald.
The accused claimed that he was walking through Fogarty’s Department store area when he came across a duffle bag resting at the side of the road.
“I look into the bag and saw the jerseys. I later sold some of the jerseys, but I didn’t steal anything your worship.”
Ridwald however held to the opinion that he was pushing his cart on which rested the duffle bag through Stabroek Market area when the accused picked up the bag without his knowledge.
That accused claimed to have sold 15 jerseys for $300 a piece.
Prosecutor Krishnadat Ramana stated that only 25 jerseys were recovered. Ramana also stated that the accused was conspicuously donned with the clothes stolen which contributed to his arrest.
Bail was refused for the accused; he was also scheduled to make another court appearance on October 30.
