Four deny breaking and entering

Four men, including two Jamaicans, accused of unlawfully entering the home of Kenrick Tugwell between Thursday and Friday last week and stealing $3 000, have pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Shammare Tevin Cole, a 19-year-old student of Suttle Street, St Michael; Omar David Smith, a 34-year-old cook, of the same address; along with two unemployed men — 20-year-old Damian Omar Bynoe, of Deacons Main Road, St Michael and 24-year-old Tremaine Dario Yarde of Rock Gap, Spooners Hill, St Michael — were each granted bail late this afternoon
when they appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court.

However, Station Sergeant Neville Watson,  who prosecuted the case, had objected to bail for members of the quartet, pointing out that Cole and Smith were both non-nationals with no roots, or ties to the island. He had also submitted that they had overstayed the 14-days granted to them upon entering Barbados.

Cole came here on February 12 this year and Smith on September 28, 2015, he said.

As for the other two accused, Watson argued that they were already on bail from the same court.

However, in response, Cole insisted that he had applied for an extension of his stay and it was granted. He said this was reflected in his passport, which he offered to send someone for. Smith also said he had been granted six months upon arrival.

Magistrate Frederick sent for their passports after an Immigration Officer told the court that he only had a record of their arrival dates but nothing on their departure.

The passports verified what the two accused men had testified in the court and along with Bynoe and Yarde were eventually granted $3 000 bail. However, the two Jamaicans will return to court on March 24, while the co-accused will do so on May 3.

    This is sickening this is what the treaty of chaguaramas is doing to us allowing criminals like some of these Jamaicans who go all over de world doing nothing but getting into trouble and living in jails I don’t know why Barbados don’t introduce an ETA like what canada just did I think it would help keep out these criminals who not working at home but seek to go to other countries and do foolishness.

    Just don’t understand men rejecting thier educational development and engaging in criminal behaviour. The higher institutions of learning are full of females and prison full of men. Come on men change your evil ay of life by changing your ay of thinking.

    Seeing that the 2 Non nationals are “free to roam” about BIM , I take it that they were fingerprinted and info. sent to the officials at both ports.
    In a situation like this the court/police need ANKLE MONITORS to be places on such persons.

    Not only they blasted well overstay their welcome. But, they get up to mischief of making others uncomfortable. Fine them heavily, stamp their files “Closed: Never to return to Barbados again” and deport the blasted nuisances with the help of police handing the over to the Jamaican constabulary

    It does not matter what nationality the person is, if they commit a crime expect to spend time in jail. Criminality just like Bacteria is not prejudice.

    Who as foreigners would ever take us seriously, look who is arrested in Barbados , always young black men , is it because only black bajans commit crime.. We don’t even have proper senior police in charge in Barbados , all or most of the senior post is temporary. we don’t even have a proper Attorney General he don’t know what his job is,

    We don’t even have a criminal forensic lab.. we don’t have a criminal data base , for local and international information..that’s why the whole judiciary is so clogged up..I always use to hear from other west Indians bajans are soft and lazy, you get away with anything in Barbados..
