Malta Independent - - NEWS -

A 35-year-old man from Qormi has de­nied theft charges.

Tris­tan Fal­zon was ar­raigned be­fore Mag­is­trate Marseanne Far­ru­gia by In­spec­tors Shaun Frig­gieri and Rod­er­ick Agius yes­ter­day af­ter­noon, ac­cused of steal­ing ob­jects from a prop­erty in Qormi on the night of 23 Au­gust. Fal­zon was fur­ther charged with com­plic­ity in the ag­gra­vated theft of a ve­hi­cle from Qormi on 26 Au­gust, han­dling stolen goods and breach­ing bail con­di­tions.

Lawyer Raisa Colombo en­tered a not guilty plea. The ac­cused needed help and treat­ment for drug ad­dic­tion, she said.

Fal­zon’s pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer told the court that the ac­cused was not keep­ing his ap­point­ments. The court re­ferred the mat­ter to the di­rec­tor of the Cor­radino Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity.

He was re­manded in cus­tody.
