A mason and a labourer appeared in a Bridgetown court Thursday charged with handling property stolen from Furniture Limited.
However, 35-year-old Ancel Anthony Aziz and 47-year-old Ezra Stevenson Nelson, both of whom are from Greenpark Lane, Baxters Road, St Michael, were not required to plead to their individual indictable charges when they went before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
It is alleged that Aziz, who is a mason, dishonestly received several items including a hose; four sinks; four wooden doors; five plastic chairs; a tent; 43 locks; two boxes of pole caps; two bags of chain links; four bi-fold doors; a bottle of Gramoxone; a bottle of thinners; and a bottle of muriatic acid, totaling $5,389.59, belonging to Furniture Limited, knowing or believing them to be stolen.
Nelson, a labourer, is accused of dishonestly receiving 30 doors; one portable air conditioner, an iron; a sprayer; 21 locks, nine chairs, one roll of vinyl; six tent covers; three sinks; two toilet tanks; three extension cords; 16 door sliders; three toilet bowls; two rolls of wire mesh; two countertops; three toilet fixtures; six sheets of plywood; eight pieces of metal pipe and a tent totaling $36,809.70 belonging to Furniture Limited, knowing or believing them to be stolen.
The offences allegedly occurred on March 25.
When it came time for bail applications, there were no objections from the prosecutor Station Sergeant Janice Ifill.
Aziz secured $5,000 bail with one surety while Nelson found a suitable $37, 000 surety.
However, the two men who were represented by attorney-at-law Arthur Holder were warned to stay away from the establishment and to make their next court appearances on June 28.
