Leon Brown has been remanded to prison after he was caught red-handed attempting to break and enter a home in D’Urban Backlands.
Brown appeared yesterday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court before acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson, charged with the September 23 attempt to break into the dwelling place of Robert Carryl, at Lot 174 D’Urban Backlands.
Brown pleaded not guilty.
The court was told that, on the day in question, the virtual complainant left his home properly secured at around 9:00 hours. Upon his return, at around 10:45 hours, he noticed that a few window panes from a window on the eastern side of the house were out and neatly placed on the ground below.
Carryl said that he then went around to the back of the house, where he noticed the accused with a quantity of tools in his hands.
Police Prosecutor Sherwin Matthews told the court that after the accused saw Carryl, the man tried to escape out of the yard. However, Carryl raised an alarm, and gave chase with the help of some neighbours.
Brown was subsequently caught and taken to the East La Penitence Police Station. The prosecution then asked that bail be refused, and the accused was remanded to prison until October 6.
