The three accused men charged with house breaking and stealing after being caught on camera conducting a robbery inside the building of LL Ramdhanny Company Ltd. on Gladstone Road in Grenville just over a month ago have been refused bail
The men appeared at the Grenville Magistrate’s court last Monday and had the opportunity to stand side by side again, this time to hear if the court was mindful to grant each or any one of them bail.
The court proffered that the men were allegedly involved in a series of robberies including a number of business places around the Town of Grenville. One of them was also slapped with an escaping lawful custody charge for walking away from the police outside the courtroom sometime last week.
The three men Byron Bernard, Sandy Fortune and Derol Charles all from Grenville were unsuccessful in their bid to be granted bail through their attorneys as the court cited public interest and the possibility of them repeating the offenses, if bail is been granted to them especially around the Christmas season, as two of the main factors.
Representing one of the accused, Attorney Andre Thomas attempted to show the court why his client should be granted bail claiming that his client is innocent until proven otherwise. His client, Thomas told the court is not a habitual offender and the offense for which he is charged is bailable and conditions could be attached if bail is granted.
The prosecutor who objected to bail being granted to the accused men when they made their first court appearance told the court that they were maintaining what has already been said, the accused men will continue on remand until December 1st when the preliminary inquiries into their trial will hopefully begin.
