A 31-year-old man who is already on remand at HMP Dodds for a previous offence will stay there for the time being.
Marlon Omar George, who is recorded as having no fixed place of abode, appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick today in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court charged with three burglary offences.
It is alleged that the unemployed man entered Harry’s Heel Bar as a trespasser on December 29 last year, while he was armed with a gun, and stole $771 in cash belonging to Harry Hutson.
He is also charged with entering the home of Henderson Browne on January 27 this year as a trespasser and stealing US$1,200; BDS$200; a laptop computer worth $1,800; a camera worth $1,253; a chain worth $1,800; a bangle worth $2,400; two rings worth $3,000 and a pair of shoes worth $350.
George was not required to plead to either of those indictable charges.
However, he told Magistrate Frederick he was not guilty of entering the home of Hugh Nicholls on January 17 as a trespasser and stealing 25 pairs of pants worth $2,140; 14 shirts worth $1,095; two pairs of slippers worth $185; a bed sheet worth $60; a comforter worth $105; a bottle of brandy worth $130; two bottles of vodka worth $130; a watch worth $150; 16 packs of soap worth $35; a bottle of aftershave worth $15 and a $3.35 pouch of tooth paste.
The charges went before Magistrate Frederick on March 7 but George, who was housed at the St Philip penal institution, could not attend the sitting as he as reportedly ill.
He is scheduled to return to court on April 13.
