Conductor remanded

Life outside prison walls has come to a screeching halt for a 44-year-old conductor.

Adrian Peter Foster, of Kings Village, Kings Street, St Michael was remanded for the next 28 days after he appeared in court on several charges, including assaulting a police officer.

He is accused of stealing $420 cash belonging to Elvis Lavine on May 12, and assaulting Police Constable Christopher Rouse in the execution of his duties.

Foster is also charged with resisting Police Sergeant Dale Blackman and Constable Rouse in the execution of their duties on May 13.

When it came time for bail, police prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock objected on the grounds that a warrant had been issued by the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court for Foster’s arrest and he had matters pending in the same court. Rock also said it was the prosecution’s fear that the accused man would be a no-show at future court hearings.

In his application for his release, Foster told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sergeant that while there were matters in the other court, one had come to completion.

After giving him a hearing, the magistrate told Foster, who had denied all the charges, that his application for bail was denied.

He was remanded to HMP Dodds and will make his second appearance before the magistrate in the No. 2 Criminal Court on
July 12.
