Criminal charges against three men have been dismissed in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
But Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes warned them that the prosecution could relodge the cases against them if so minded.
Ravi Sheldon Shanker, of Spencer’s Gap, Baxters Road, St Michael had been before the court since 2018.
He was charged that on May 29 that year, he entered Tracelyn Bellas’ house as a trespasser and damaged a door worth $100.
In the other matter, Junior Orlando Sobers, of Licorish Village, My Lords Hill, St Michael was facing a charge of stealing a power washer worth $4 400, belonging to Williams Equipment on December 22, 2017.
The third accused, Amson Sealy, of Stevenson Road, Delamare Land, St Michael, was charged with unlawfully and maliciously wounding Andre Chester on October 9, 2017.
All three accused had pleaded not guilty to their individual charges and have each been on $3 000 bail for a number of years.
However, when their matters were called before Chief Magistrate Weekes on Tuesday, the prosecution still had no file to take any of the cases forward, resulting in the Chief Magistrate dismissing the cases.
