A young kleptomaniac who has stolen from and robbed more than a hundred persons since his early teenaged years was yesterday refused bail and remanded.
Appearing this time before Magistrate, Melissa Robertson, 20 year-old Terrence Forde, could not ‘smooth talk his way into bail’ since the court may have grown tired of seeing his face on his numerous other related charges.
Not so long ago, the young man had appeared before the court for repeated break and enter and larceny charges. Many of the cases collapsed since most of his preys were homosexual males who were ashamed to come to trial.
In this case he was appearing to answer break and enter, and larceny charges committed on June 30 at the dwelling place of Edwin Nunes from whom he stole a Shtil grass cutter valued at $160,000.
News of his arrest and court appearance brought at least three of his homosexual victims who were overheard rejoicing in hushed voices over his fate.
Terrence Forde was also arrested and questioned this year for the recent murder of a prominent sports personality who was said to be a homosexual.
Forde said that he would normally visit the defendant’s daughter with whom he has a relationship.
He said that the man was against the union and has always threatened to imprison him.
This was denied by the virtual complainant who said that his son caught Forde stealing the grass cutter.
The prosecution said that Forde had taken the police to a man to whom he had sold the grass cutter, but the item was not recovered.
He will return to court for trial on July 24.
