Nelson on bail for handling stolen property

A St Michael man has denied a charge of handling stolen property.

It is alleged that Benjamin Bohaimie Nelson, 24, of #58 Neem Link Road, Lower Burney dishonestly assisted in the disposal of a motorcycle, knowing or believing it to be stolen.

The offence allegedly occurred sometime between September 1 and 31 this year.

Nelson pleaded not guilty when he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court recently.

Bail in the sum of $3,000 was approved after the police prosecutor offered no objections.

The accused man, who was represented by attorney-at-law Marlon Gordon, returns to court on February 28.

In another case, securing a $5,000 surety resulted in Winston Decourcey Clarke going home for Christmas.

Clarke, of Marshall Gap, New Orleans, St Michael, is charged with the July 2011 offence of robbing Samuel Agard of a $300 cellular phone and $50 in cash.

He is also accused of causing serious bodily harm to Catherine Balgobin with intent to maim, disfigure or disable her on June 9, 2013.

After signing the necessary papers, a smiling Clarke left the No.1 District ‘A’ Criminal Court. He is expected to be back on March 7, 2017.
