A Meadow Bank, Georgetown fish vendor was released on $80,000 after he denied stealing a gold and silver ring during a brawl with another man.

37-year-old Tafivan Vieira was brought before Magistrate Dylon Bess at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts where he was read the charge.

The charge alleges that on September 26, 2021, at Meadowbank Wharf, Georgetown, he stole a gold ring valued at $152,200 and a silver ring valued at $14,500, from Roma Monasar, property of the said Roma Monasar.

The court heard that the fish vendor and the virtual complainant are known to each other. The two men work at the Wharf at Meadowbank. It was disclosed that the two were involved in an altercation. A fight ensued and during the fight, Vieira removed the jewellery from the virtual complainant.

Viera was placed on $80,000 bail with the condition that he reports to the Ruimveldt Police Station. He was also required to lodge his passport with the Court. The matter was adjourned for a later date in October.
