A South Ruimveldt man who denied that he stole $2.3M worth in household appliances from his cousin was this afternoon charged and remanded to prison when he appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Akeem Prince, 29, of South Ruimveldt pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that between June 1 and June 25, 2019, at South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, he broke and entered the dwelling-house of Romario Prince and stole a number of articles valuing $2.3M, which were the property of the said Romario Prince.
Police Prosecutor Seon Blackman objected to bail being granted to the defendant, citing the value of the articles and the fact that he was caught red-handed removing the mentioned articles.
Facts presented by the prosecutor stated that during the period mentioned in the charge, a neighbour saw the defendant removing the articles and called the police who showed up and arrested him. He was then taken to the station and was charged with the crime.
He was remanded to prison until July 19.
