Four appear in theft case
Four St Michael men appeared in a Bridgetown court yesterday in relation to stealing and receiving stolen items from Melissa Hinds’ home.
In the end, one went to the Psychiatric Hospital, one got bail and two were remanded.
Winston Leroy King, a 43-year-old well digger from Thompson Land, 3rd Avenue Licorish Village and Zing Leo Pile, 23, of Goddings Road, Station Hill are accused of entering Hinds’ home sometime between February 20 and 23, and stealing a television set, stereo, tablet, DVD player, pots, soap and detergent.
Pile pleaded not guilty before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale. He was granted bail and his matter adjourned until May 14. He was ordered to report to a police station three times a week.
King, however, said he was “not able to plead here right now” because he needed medication from the Psychiatric Hospital.
“I would like to be placed at Psychiatric for three weeks . . . ,” he said, adding that he wanted to get himself together before pleading.
That request was granted and King will return to court on March 19.
Junior Andrew Small, 44, of Goddings Road, Station Hill pleaded not guilty to dishonestly assisting in the retention of two stolen saucepans and a box of soap powder.
The painter, who has previous convictions, was remanded.
Mikhail Ajani Holder, 24, of the same address, also denied a similar charge. He too was remanded after the court realized that he was already on bail on a previous charge.
