St Michael man denies handling stolen property

A 35-year-old driver who made his first appearance before a Bridgetown court today has denied a charge of handling stolen property.

Randy Alex Haley Durrant, of White Hall #1, St Michael, is accused of dishonestly undertaking or assisting in the retention, removal or disposal of a demolition hammer valued $4,580.46, two angle grinders valued $644, a cordless drilling machine valued $919.38, a belt sander valued $580 and a power plane valued $430, belonging to R.R Consteel Inc by or for the benefit on Douglas Williams, or dishonestly arranged to do so knowing the same to be stolen.

The alleged offence occurred sometime between March 4 and 8.

Durrant pleaded not guilty to the charge when he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Fredrick in the No.1 District ‘A’ Criminal Court today.

With no objections from the police prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Watson, the accused who was represented by attorney-at-law Kendrid Sargeant was granted $3,000 bail which he posted with one surety.

He returns to court on June 1.

In another case before Magistrate Frederick today, a 36-year-old man who had been on remand at HMP Dodds for assault was granted his freedom.

Linden Junior Inniss, of Grosvenor’s Road, Carrington Village, St Michael, is charged with assaulting Shaniqua Lynch on February 3, occasioning her actual bodily harm.

The prosecutor did not renew the previous objections and Inniss was granted $3,000 bail with one surety.

However, Inniss, who has denied the charge, was warned to stay away from Lynch and to reappear in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on June 21.
