Two granted bail for theft

A man and a woman, who appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court yesterday on 49 charges of theft, were each granted bail in the sum of $175,000.

However, Lisa Whitney Shondelle Ramsay, 30, was remanded to HMP Dodds until next Wednesday after her surety did not meet all of the bail requirements.

Her co-accused, 40-year-old Shawn Peter Bourne, was granted bail in the same amount. He too must return to court on Wednesday.

Magistrate Douglas Frederick ordered Bourne to surrender his travel documents and report to a police station every Wednesday before 10 a.m.

He lives at Rendezvous, Christ Church and Ramsay at Bibby’s Gap, Halls Road, St Michael.

They are accused of stealing money belonging to Duty Free Caribbean Limited, which was lodged at FirstCaribbean International Bank. The amounts ranged from $2,500 to $6,832. The pair also faces one additional charge each of money laundering.

All of the offences were allegedly committed between January and November 2014.

Dr Waldo Waldron-Ramsay, QC, appeared on behalf of accused Ramsay, while Roy Hurley represented accused Bourne.

    Bajans need to stop posting junk about people as soon as they are charged.
    Punishment is determined after you are found guilty.
    They were remanded not sentenced.

    His/her point is you are innocent until proven guilty. For example a woman can accuse a man of raping her and there is evidence that they had sex but it can be proven during the trial that the woman lied about the rape for one reason or another.
    Therefore we need to stop rushing to judgement unless we have intimate knowledge of what happened.
