Taxi driver remanded
A 44-year-old taxi driver was yesterday remanded into custody at HMP Dodds on a theft charge.
Ryan Trevor Oneal Belgrave of Ifill Road, Flagstaff, St Michael is accused of stealing 300 litres of diesel worth $612 belonging to Rayside Construction Limited.
The offence was allegedly committed on August 18 or 19.
He was not required to plead to the charge.
Police Prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock had objected to bail on the grounds that there was a warrant issued for Belgrave in the No 2 District “A” Magistrates Court and that the theft charge was a serious offence.
Acting Chief Magistrate Douglas Frederick remanded Belgrave until September 8 when he will reappear in the District “B” Magistrates Court.
