A 21-year-old salesman was today sentenced to six months’ imprisonment after he was found guilty of stealing a woman’s gold chain.

Dwayne Samuels denied the charge which stated that on April 2, 2019, at Industrial Site, Ruimveldt, he stole a gold chain valued at $30,000 from Amanda Dookram.

He was on trial before Magistrate Rondel Weever in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. The magistrate this afternoon ruled that after going through the entirety of the evidence, she was satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Samuels committed the offence. Hence, he was sentenced to six months behind bars.

Samuels on his first court appearance was granted bail in the sum of $30,000 pending the hearing and determination of the trial.
