Man charged with string of break-ins
A Hopewell, Christ Church resident who went before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court charged with stealing more than $45,000 in cash and items between February and March, has been remanded to prison.
Richarre Rossini Martin, 36, will return to court on April 14.
He was not required to plead to any of the charges which were read to him when he went before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale on Saturday.
Those were that between February 28 and March 1, he went into Ruth Bluestone’s house and stole a camera, two cellular phones and other items valued at $2,300.
Another charge relates to entering Jesse Seavers’ home and stealing a case of beer valued $40 between March 3 and 4.
Martin is further charged that between March 22 and 23, he entered Round Rock Apartments and stole two cellular phones, Euros, US and Barbadian money totalling $16,400, belonging to four Italian visitors.
Between March 24 and 25 he allegedly stole 70 litres of diesel valued $150 belonging to M&N Enterprise Incorporated.
Martin’s final charge is that on March 28 this year, he entered Inch by Inch and stole a laptop computer, two tablets, a ring and US currency, totalling $26,580 in value.
The prosecutor, Acting Station Sergeant Neville Watson, objected to bail, stating that the accused was already on bail and had committed prior acts of dishonesty, thereby showing a propensity for such offences.
