Frankie Persaud, 40, a vendor by profession, must answer a charge of simple larceny.
He appeared before acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson to face this charge, following the allegation that, last January 7, he last he stole one pair of jeans from Giftland Office Max.
He pleaded not guilty to the offence.
Persaud said that he usually buys and sells clothes, and that he didn’t steal any jeans from the store.
He explained that on the day in question, while in the store, he was checking out several pairs of jeans when a man who knows him started to trouble him and accuse him of stealing from the store.
However, the prosecution stated that the defendant was lying, and added that ‘he was caught placing the said jeans into an umbrella.’
The court heard that Persaud was arrested and taken to the station, where he was charged. Magistrate Robertson placed the defendant on $5,000 bail and ordered that he re-appears in court on February 6, 2009.
