A 43-year-old man was back before the Magistrates’ Court on Thursday on a charge of burglary, one week after he was granted bail.
This time, Anthony Wayne Bovell, from Franklyn Douglin Road, St Andrew, was not so lucky. He is now on remand at Dodds pending sentencing and is scheduled to reappear before Magistrate Manila Renee on October 14. He is expected to know his fate that day for stealing $120 cash belonging to Akeisha Clarke on September 10 when he entered Divine Ghawdess Naturals store as a trespasser.
The court heard from Sergeant Paul Prescod that Bovell entered the establishment and left soon after. He later returned with his mask just below his eyes.
He picked up an item and went to the checkout where Clarke, who is the owner, was sitting. He was then told of the cost of the item but instead he told the woman to empty out the cash drawer and that he was armed with a gun which he had in his bag.
She was told to hurry and she complied after which Marshall made his escape. The matter was reported to the police.
Addressing the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Bovell told the magistrate that he had been before the court on September 7 and was granted bail.
“I trying to get help but nobody not helping. I am at the mercy of the court. I got a drug problem.”
