Bail after 28 days on remand

A 32-year-old man who was on remand for the past 28 days got his freedom yesterday, after the prosecutor did not renew his objections to bail.

Corey Omar Nicholls of Yearwood Road, Sugar Hill, St Joseph is accused of entering the Gemini Bar on March 13 and stealing 20 bottles of liquor worth $1,048; 36 packs of condoms worth $99; six packs of cigarettes worth $57.50; and $540 in cash belonging to Ricardo Brown.

It is also alleged that Nicholls entered the same bar two days later, and stole seven bottles of liquor worth $270.

He denied the charges when he first appeared before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on June 2 and he was remanded to HMP Dodds after the prosecutor objected to his release on several grounds.

However, when he made his second appearance yesterday, there were no objections and Nicholls was allowed to leave the court on $3,000 bail after the magistrate accepted his surety.

As part of his bail conditions, he must report to the Holetown Police Station every Wednesday by 10 a.m. with valid identification.

Nicholls is scheduled to reappear before the court on September 27.
