St James man gets night behind bars

A 44 year-old St James man, accused of theft, will spend the night at Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds after failing to produce a surety to secure his bail.

Trents resident Artifus Akelton Flavius appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, charged with entering Art Splash as a trespasser, and stealing $300, two bottles of coke, two bottles of juices, one bag of nuts, two packs of ham, two bottles of honey, four bottles of toilet cleaner and two bottles of orangeade.

He pleaded not guilty to stealing the items which had a combined value of $475.75.

Although the magistrate was willing to grant him a bail release, Flavius’ surety had not turned up by the close of the court’s business day.

As a result,  the Magistrate remanded the accused until Tuesdau.
