Police in Berbice have been commended for their diligent work in cracking a sheep thieving gang. They arrested two men in a car and these have since been placed before the court.
According to reports the police on West Coast Berbice were on patrol on Sunday last when around 14:00 hrs in the vicinity of No 40 Village, West Coast Berbice, they observed two men acting in a suspicious manner.
They stopped the car— a dark blue Toyota AT 212—which was on its ways to Georgetown and upon searching the vehicle they found three sheep concealed in the trunk of the vehicle.
The men, Lakeram Persaud, a labourer; and miner and Raymon Brito, called Avinash, a taxi driver, of Golden Grove Housing Scheme, were both charged for larceny of the sheep.
The men were taken to the New Amsterdam Magistrate court where they appeared before magistrate Adela Nagamootoo and pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutor Corporal Sherlock King told the court that on the day in question the men stole the three sheep, one ram and two ewes, valued over $75,000.
He said that the animals were subsequently identified as the property of Jermaine Robertson, Latchmandai Seenarine and Romal Seecharran all of the West Coast of Berbice.
Prosecutor King further submitted that the thieving of sheep is becoming a problem and asked that bail be refused since the men live out of the area and there is every likelihood that they would not return for their trial.
He also stated that there are other matters pending in which investigation are still ongoing and charges are likely.
The men were subsequently granted bail in the sum of 25,000 each. The matter was transferred to the Fort Wellington Magistrate’s Court where they will have to return on November 4.
A letter has since been written in the daily newspapers by the West Berbice Sheep and Goat Farmers’ Association commending the police led by Deputy Superintendent Steven Mansell for their diligent work.
