Twenty-six-year-old Seon Isaacs of West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, was yesterday charged and remanded to prison on a break and enter charge.
Isaacs pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that, on July 12, he broke and entered the home of Sandra Adams and stole a number of household appliances valuing $1,400,000.
The unrepresented man appeared before Principal Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Facts presented by Police Prosecutor Shellon Daniels stated that on the day in question, the victim arrived home and noticed a car was parked in front of her lot. Soon after, the car drove off but the woman was able to see some of her appliances in the vehicle’s trunk, which was opened.
The woman alerted her neighbours who ran behind the car. The vehicle eventually stopped a short distance away.
Officers arrived on the scene and arrested Isaacs who was seated in the vehicle. He was told of the allegation to which he is said to have admitted to in a caution statement.
The stolen articles were recovered and returned to the victim.
Prosecutor Daniels objected to bail being granted to the defendant on the grounds of the prevalence of the offence and the penalty the charge attracts.
She also highlighted the fact that the defendant was caught red-handed with the stolen articles.
The magistrate, after listening to the facts, remanded Isaacs to prison until July 29.
