Young goldsmith to remain in jail, until he pays for gold chain
A tattoo artist who fraudulently converted two gold chains to his own use was yesterday remanded to prison by Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson.
It was alleged that Adrian “Bunzo” Sunitch, 23, of 106 South Sophia, on January 17, last, at Mahdia, fraudulently converted to his own use two gold chains valuing $86,000, property of Luther Crandon. Sunitch, who pleaded guilty, was unrepresented by a lawyer yesterday.
The man told the magistrate that he left the two chains with a friend, and that he would be repaying Crandon for the chains.
Police Prosecutor Stephen Telford told the court that Sunitch received the two chains from Crandon to clean.
The prosecutor told the court that Crandon returned the following day, but Sunitch had already fled the jurisdiction.
A report was made at the police station and the defendant was caught in Georgetown. After he was caught by the police he claimed that he loaned the chain to a friend.
He was remanded to prison to be released once Crandon is fully compensated.
He is expected to make another court appearance on February 24.
