Dwayne Game of Princes Street, Charlestown, Georgetown, was yesterday granted bail by (ag) Chief Magistrate Priya Beharry for pilfering three steel rods from the bridge of Stanley Troya.
The man who was unrepresented pleaded not guilty and told the Magistrate that he is gainfully employed as a truck driver.
According to the police report, the defendant was seen on November 1, removing the three steel rods from the bridge. The matter was reported to the police and the defendant was arrested. Pending investigation, he later admitted to the offence and was charged.
As the charge was being read to him he appeared to be relatively uneasy.
He is scheduled to make his next court appearance on January 3. And another to land in hot water was Mark Forsythe. “The Dettol was in my pocket but I was not going to take it away,” he told the court yesterday.
Forsythe, of Charlotte Street, Georgetown, pleaded guilty to stealing a bottle of Dettol antiseptic from Guyana Stores Limited.
The court was told that on the day in question, the defendant was caught by a guard on duty with the item in his pocket.
When asked by the magistrate whether he intended to leave the store with the item, the man answered in the negative. The magistrate then entered a not guilty plea, released Forsythe on his own recognizance and ordered him to return to court on November 19.
