Theft ac­cused re­manded to HMP Dodds

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - The Courts -

An ac­cused man who was on bail for a pre­vi­ous of­fence and who has had a war­rant for non-ap­pear­ance is­sued against him was re­manded when he ap­peared in the District “A” Mag­is­trates’ Court yes­ter­day.

Jahlanny Tre­maine Yarde, 20, of Sil­ver Hill Drive, Christ Church, was charged with steal­ing $7 700 be­long­ing to Na­dia Grif­fith, on De­cem­ber 22, 2017.

Prose­cu­tor Act­ing Sta­tion Sergeant Cameron Gib­bons, in ob­ject­ing to bail, pointed to the se­ri­ous­ness of the of­fence and the strength of the ev­i­dence.

The prose­cu­tor added the ac­cused was on bail from the same court for an ag­gra­vated bur­glary charge and had a war­rant is­sued for his ar­rest af­ter he failed to ap­pear on April 26.

Act­ing Sta­tion Sergeant Gib­bons said the pros­e­cu­tion feared that should the ac­cused be re­leased, he would re­of­fend.

Mag­is­trate Kristie Cuffy-sargeant re­manded the ac­cused to HMP Dodds un­til Oc­to­ber 15, by con­sent.

The ac­cused, who was rep­re­sented by at­tor­ney Ro­main Mar­shall, will reap­pear in court on that date.
