A 24-year-old man, who allegedly damaged several church windows, has been remanded to Dodds prison for the next 28 days.
Renison Issiah Prince, of Fairfield, Black Rock, St Michael, is accused of damaging 19 windows worth $38,055, belonging to St Mary’s Church.
When he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Fredrick today in the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, Prince was not required to plead to the offence, which allegedly took place yesterday.
However, he admitted to destroying, by fire, a waste paper basket belonging to Republic Bank (Barbados) Limited; damaging a motor van belonging to Ryan Bartlett; damaging eight windows belonging to the Crown; damaging a window belonging to Khan Chambers, as well as damaging ten windows belonging to Kishore Lawani on the same day.
The facts of the cases were not outlined by Station Sergeant Neville Reid this afternoon. However, the prosecutor urged the magistrate to remand Prince into custody based on the serious nature of the offences, and the fact that the accused was already on bail.
Magistrate Frederick ruled in the prosecution’s favour and Prince was sent up to the St Philip penal institution until November 20.
