Courtney Ian Attidore of St. Joseph and Derrick Jno Baptiste Charles of River Street, Roseau, have both been remanded in custody at the Dominica State Prison on separate charges of burglary preferred against them by the police.,
It is alleged that on September 10, 2023, at Cork Street, Roseau, Attidore entered as a trespasser in the business place known as the Blast Gaming Center and stole EC$7,650.00 and one USD$1.00 bill, all to the total value of EC$7,652.67.

At the hearing, the accused men were not required to enter a plea since the matters are indictable offenses expected to be tried at the High Court before a Judge and jury.
Police Prosecutor, Sergeant David Andrew Jr., did not object to bail, but the men were unable to present a surety to the Court to secure their release.
The matters were adjourned to January 26 and 30, 2024, respectively for the start of the Preliminary Inquiry.
