The owner on No. 1 Beauty Supplies and two of his employees have been accused of kidnapping a former cashier.
Omar Ahmad Bashiti, 51, of 242 Marcus Drive, Crystal Heights, St Michael, has been charged along with security guard Renalto Cameron Barnard, 36, of 4th Avenue Pickwick Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael; and IT specialist Stevan Uros Greaves, 38, of Ellis Road, Halls Road, St Michael.
The trio was not required to plead to a joint charge of removing Karen Thompson from Rock Dundo, St Michael, without her consent on July 20.
Bashiti and Barnard are further accused of trespassing at Thompson’s home on the same date with intent to commit theft while Bashiti is facing a separate charge of stealing $700 in cash belonging to the same complainant.
Following submissions from the prosecutor Station Sergeant Samuel Hinds and defence attorney Angella Mitchell-Gittens, the accused men were released on bail on condition that they stay away from the complainant.
Bashiti was released on $15,000 bail, while Barnard was granted $12,000 and Greaves $10,000 bail.
They return before Magistrate Douglas Frederick on November 7.
In the meantime, Bashiti is to appear in the District ‘D’ Magistrate’s Court on August 8 on the theft charge.
