Eggleston men face burglary charges

courtTwo men of Eggleston, who were jointly charged with burglary, were remanded at the State Prison after being denied bail.

Shadrach Andrew 18, and Jefferson Ducreay, 23, appeared before Magistrate Sherma Blaize- Sylvester at a Roseau Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

According to reports the defendants entered the dwelling house of Courtney Walsh at Eggleston between March 26th and April 3rd and stole a number of items including home theatre systems, television sets, ceiling fans, windows, transformer, sewing machine, extension cords among other, totalling to about $61,537.82.

The Prosecution, led by Sergeant Davidson Cadette, asked that bail be denied for the two.

Sergeant Cadette stated that both defendants may interfere with police investigations.

Attorney at Law, Ronald Charles, who represented the defendants told the court that his clients had already spend days in police custody and bail was promised to them. He said he did not understand why his clients were being denied bail.

But Cadette explained that the matter is a very serious one, and while they are aware that someone is innocent until proven guilty; there are a number of items that were still unrecovered by police.

Additionally, he said; if granted bail, the defendants will interfere with other witnesses in relations to the matter.

Disclosure was ordered by July 30, 2015, while the trial date was set for August 18, 2015.

    Shame! Shame! Shame! Some of the young boys of Giraudel/ Eggleston choose to seat on the road side to smoke weed and to rob people of all their valuables they have worked so hard for instead of working hard for their qwn.

    @ The Facts. you said every country has its scandals. Is that justification for our government to be involved in scandal after scandal?The facts that is the problem why Dominica is behind every OECS country it is because people like you who pretend to have on a thinking cap have curled your tails up your bottom and allowed these men to become rich on our hard work, misuse the country’s resources , have no debate,have no discussions, sign mysterious loans , scandalize our passports , pass around with handouts every election and stifle the opportunities for growth and development of our country.
    But you know my experience is that a lot of intellectual people who you find defend the behavior of this government( even alleged rape and fire bombings) are those who benefit personal from the corruption.

      I do believe that you enjoy lambasting the PM and that you have a wild imagination, love to exaggerate and blow matters out of proportion. Your traits I suppose. Are you aware that this is a form of harassment which could lead to libel? All your comments are identical and also boring. Repetition after repetition and on and on . . . You do have a severe problem. Check yourself to see whether you need some sort of medical assistance.

    @ the facts and @ more: St lucia will have more crime cause they have a population maybe thrice ours and there is much more economic activities. You said St Lucia has an international airport the question is why doesn’t Dominica have one? Further more the report focused on the number of tourist arrival in st lucia by cruise ship.
    My main argument is that we have sat and witness this government in scandal after scandal including allegations of sexual abuse , misuse the country’s resources and we proclaim to be Christians and we say nothing. For 15 years what has this government done to curb the abuse? tell me The Facts? Recently when the Pm had to come out strong and talk about implementing measures he said that “people must speak out” Now my friend people are outraged and speaking out what is the governments move?

        Where does this person reside? Some countries are hundred times worst than Dominica. It is only through the grace of God and his protection that some who reside in certain countries are not personally affected (so far) by the numerous crimes and criminals.

      Did you realize that you are calling all Dominicans dumb and mean-spirited? Who are you to make such a statement and to generalize? You are insulting all the intelligent D/cans. The next time you plan to make such a comment, think twice. We could make the identical statement about you.

    Keep them on remand unless you experience a break in you don’t know how it feels .My house was broken into and I lost quite a lot of personal things and my God it hurts, it is devastating I have absolutely no sympathy. Voliere.

    Thieves are dangerous. They hoped to sell the man’s $61,537.82 worth of items? I am pleased they were caught.
    Thieves do not love their neighbors; not even friends. I wonder, if a relative. He worked hard for his property and in a few minutes you cleaned his house out of them? Shame on you!
    Those who have been victims to thieves know the feeling of coming home to find their homes burglarized and contents stolen.
    When are some people going to learn respect for others and their property? You have disturbed his peace of mind, tranquility and happiness. You have also deprived him of enjoyment of his property and caused him much distress.
    Do not be envious of what others have. Leave people’s property alone! You did not work for it.
    The thought is crossing my mind, do you want to go to Hell for stealing from others? This is what will happen to you if you continue this trend and never repent.
    I hope they will receive the full brunt of punishment as each deserves.

    $61,537.82! What did they do, clean up the person’s house completely? But I would not be surprised, for that is how mischievous, evil, and wicked the human mind can be

    That is the reason I said before, no number of years in jail will do anything for those people. The reason is because their conscience is dead, they are not receiving the Laws of Life, from God; for their mind is carnal–God’s enemy in them; they are conformed to the control of their human senses which only calls for the works of the flesh and most of those works is futility–like the action of those two people in question, here.

    Those people need to be exorcised, however, only God can do this work in them. So what shall we do, if not to call to Him on their behalf.

      Yet, in this democratic society, after they are released from prison, they are sent back into the community. This is why some people are advocates of the death penalty. If they cannot change and are beyond changing, society does not need people as these roaming the streets. They will continue plying their trade of thievery and creating havoc. Something has to be done about those criminals/thieves.
      I would throw them in prison. Lock the door and throw away the key.
      $6, 537.82, this should warrant some years of imprisonment

    When i say Roosvelt must go i getting 130 thumbs down. Recently i read in article that tourism is doing so well in st lucia and the government there is investing 270 million in a hospital that will be the best in the oecs .So let us be frank and ask ourselves these questions. Why dont we read in the news that production is on the rise , exports have increased. productivity is on the rise, international airport on its way, marina on its way, sandals hotel on its way( not Moroccan hotels and hotels from shady investors), employment on the rise, revival of agricultural industry, foreign direct investment on the rise , minimum wage on the rise, GDP has improved…?
    Every other month we read of scandal after scandal and every week about abuse, burglary, stealing goats, drinking rum and so forth and we have sat there and allowed these men to get rich on our backs while we work for minimal wages and there is nothing happening in the economy. yet still keep shouting” We love our PM.

      You are too late and you do not put on your thinking cap if you have one. You are comparing St. Lucia to Dominica and vice versa?
      Consider St. Lucia has an international airport for some years. Consider also the influx of tourists to St. Lucia which helps the economy grow with their US dollars. What more do you want to read?
      Do you not think that St. Lucia does not have its scandal? Every country of the world has their never-ceasing scandals of every sort.
      Did you not hear/read sometime ago that some tourists/visitors were bludgeoned to death in St. Lucia? A St. Lucian informed me that St. Lucia’s has more crimes than Dominica.
      My advice to you is to pray for your country and others in the country. Some of you do more complaining than praying. This is why your view and comments are always negative. You make Dominica worst than it is.

      while you reading tourism doing so well in St. Lucia, why don’t you read how many murders SLU have had so far. Maybe you should read that a health center in Castries had to be temporarily closed due to violence in the area.

      Ok… Dominica’s economy isn’t the best, but wake up! stop blaming Skerrit for everything and blame the criminals for their actions. so much land Eggleston has, yet those young men preferred to sit on the block day in day out smoking weed. It’s just a natural progression of their bad choices and support of their parents for their negative actions.
