Five-year-old case dismissed

The case against two drivers accused of stealing material belonging to the crown was dismissed yesterday.

Cladstone Catlyn, 53, of Branchbury, St Joseph and Garfeild Rudy Pinder, 38, of Bartlett Tenantry Road, Sergeant Village, Christ Church, walked out of the District “A” Magistrates’ Court free men after making appearances for the last five years.

They were charged back on December 15, 2011 with stealing 13 manhole covers valued at $19,017.31 belonging to the Crown.

Catlyn and Pinder were each on $15,000 bail.

When the duo appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, their case was dismissed for want of prosecution.

    5 years, and dismissed for want of Prosecution, What does “”For want of Prosecution really mean??”” was there NO evidence that the stole the 13 manhole Covers?? and if they did steal them, who did they sell them to, what about finding that person, someone in the DPP’s office should be hauled over the Coals for this (Just Day dreaming)

    I remember when this case was first reported in the news media.

    Amazing, five years ago.

    All this man has to do now is to sue Everybody. The AG , The Superintendent of Prisons, The DPP, The Commissioner of Police. everybody.

    Malicious prosecution.
