Harris remanded on burglary charges

courtTony Ricardo Harris, who is listed as having no fixed place of abode, has been remanded to prison on burglary charges.

He appeared before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale this afternoon, accused of entering the house of Garaldine Williams as a trespasser on November 8 and stealing four rolls of toilet paper worth $6; two rolls of paper towels worth $9; a carton of juice worth $5.95; a can of insecticide worth $5.25; and two packs of fruit snacks worth $6.

Harris denied the charges.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Carrison Henry objected to his bail release, informing the court that the accused was already out on bail from the Oistins Magistrates’ Court and had no fixed place to live.

Sergeant Henry said the Crown also feared that if granted bail, Harris would reoffend. The court was also reminded that Harris was currently on a bond to keep the peace.

Magistrate Seale was not at all happy that Harris was again before the court facing another allegation.

“What am I going to do with you? I gave you a chance and you are back before me again,” he told Harris.

“I want you to be lenient on me, Sir,” the accused replied.

Seale countered: “I was, on the last occasion. How often can I be lenient? . . . How can I do that in the face of a society that I am supposed to protect? You are coming back too often, Sir. You are remanded into custody.”

Harris will return to court on December 6.

    Well, with no fixed place of abode, out on a bond, out on bail, what else does he want the magistrate to do? I think he did the right thing. At least you will have a roof over your head,
