Mechanic denies stealing over 100 bottles of liquor
Magistrate Douglas Frederick remanded a St Michael man today after he denied a charge of stealing a large quantity of alcoholic beverages sometime between last October 23 and 24.
Corey St Clair Trotman, a mechanic, of Flint Hall, St Michael pleaded not guilty to breaking into Nancy’s Beer Corner and taking 15 cases of beer, 15 bottles of whiskey, 100 bottles of rum, 15 bottles of vodka, 11 bottles of brandy, 30 bottles of wine and two boxes of biscuits.
The total value of the items which belong to Winslow Moore was $5,902.
Trotman, who was unrepresented by counsel, went before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
Prosecuting, Station Sergeant Neville Watson objected to bail for the 41-year-old. He mentioned Trotman’s antecedents and the fact that police were not only trying to recover the items but to find another “person of interest”.
The prosecutor further remarked on the nature and the seriousness of the offence, adding that the accused himself needed to be protected.
In response, Trotman asked that he be allowed to get himself in order so he could retain a lawyer.
He also pointed out that it “is years” since he got involved in anything.
He was remanded to Dodds prison until May 3.
