Accused Jamar Leon Ashby will make his next appearance before this island’s chief magistrate in another 28 days for allegedly stealing most of the contents from another man’s house.
The Montrose, Christ Church resident is accused of entering the home of Luther Mayers between September 23 and October 1, 2017 and stealing over $24,000 in items including a $12,000 living room set worth, $2,900 in tables and a $1,000 television set.
Ashby was not required to plead to the indictable charge, which allegedly took place in the District ‘B’ jurisdiction. He is also accused of stealing a $1,500 motorcycle belonging to Anthony Hoyte on December 18, 2018.
Among the objections to bail raised by police prosecutor Constable Kevin Forde was that the accused he had a propensity to commit such offences.
“I have nothing to say right now,” Ashby said when asked by District ‘A’ Magistrate Douglas Frederick whether he would like to make an application for bail.
He was remanded and will make his next appearance before Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch on January 30.
