Two 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.
