A 43-year-old man, who is accused of stealing two hams worth $160 from RJ’s Value Market on August 26, is back at home tonight after spending 28 days on remand at HMP Dodds.
Jeffery Anderson Tyrone Graham of Storey Gap, Codrington Hill, St Michael, who is also accused of making verbal threats to a woman, was finally able to present a surety to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today after failing to do so during his first appearance when he denied both charges.
However, when he went before Magistrate Douglas Frederick today he denied knowing Sheila Welcome, even after he allegedly told her on August 15, “this is four years I following you and I know every road you does take for work on morning and I am going to give you what I have for you tomorrow morning because I ain’t forget your son”.
Graham admitted to knowing Welcome’s son, explaining that “he did something to me . . . . He cut me Sir”.
While granting him $3,000 bail, the magistrate told the accused that the allegation against him was a very serious one and he warned Graham to stay away from Welcome and her son.
“If you see them on one side of the road, go to the next,” Frederick explained.
The case resumes on February 8, 2018.
In the meantime, Graham must report to Central Police Station every Wednesday by 10 a.m. with valid identification.
