He was made to spend just one night in jail before he was allowed to walk free Tuesday on a charge of theft.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today dismissed the charge against 42-year-old David Sylvester Small of Thompson Land, Fitts Village, St James after he Monday denied stealing BDS$70 and US$40 belonging to Nick Niederberger on June 11.
However, Small was remanded to Dodds prison overnight after the police prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons objected to bail on several grounds.
When his case resumed this afternoon, the complainant, who had been summoned to appear in court, was present.
However, Niederberger, who is a visitor to the island, said he was unable to identify the person who robbed him.
As such Small walked out of the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court a free man.
