Jeremy Ivor Jones has a place to call home this Christmas.
Jones, who is said to have no fixed placed of abode, was today remanded to prison after appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court charged with stealing two rings worth $1,500 and $500 in cash belonging to Wilbert Lynch.
He denied the charges after they were read to him by Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the No 2 Criminal Court this afternoon.
When it came time for bail, the prosecutor objected on the grounds that Jones had no address listed on the charge sheet.
Asked by the magistrate to explain his living situation, Jones said he had been renting from the complainant but had to leave because of the situation.
“I don’t live nowhere. My family overseas,” he told the magistrate.
Frederick then explained that his lack of an address posed a problem, as it was needed in order to locate him.
“Or I will have to send you to prison,” the magistrate said.
“I won’t like to go there,” Jones responded, although adding, “I don’t have a solution.”
The magistrate informed Jones that he had no choice but to remand him to prison until January 5, 2017.
“You have to sort out yourself,” he advised Jones.
