A man, who was previously convicted for stealing a phone, has once again been charged for a similar offence.
Twenty-seven-year-old Fizal Mohamed appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Courts where he was slapped with two charges.
The first charge stated that on October 11, 2019, at Regent Street, Georgetown, he stole one phone valued $67,000 and $60,000 cash, the property of Dindiall Abrahim.
It was further alleged that on September 18, 2019, at the said location, he stole from Davenand Rampan a cellular phone valued $250,000.
Mohamed denied the first charge and pleaded guilty to the second charge.
Facts presented by Police Prosecutor Christopher Morris stated that on the day in question, the victim, who is a taxi driver, was hired by the defendant to take him at a bar in the city.
The court heard that upon arrival at the bar, the defendant asked for a phone call and was given.
However, Mohamed exited the car and made good his escape with the driver’s phone.
The matter was reported; and, following an investigation, Mohamed was arrested and charged for offence.
The Magistrate, after listening to the facts, sentenced Mohamed to four months behind bars.
In relation to the matter to which he pleaded not guilty, Mohamed is expected to make his next court appearance on November 8, 2019.
