Bail denied for men accused of stealing ex-employer's car
Two men were yesterday offered bail when they appeared in a St Elizabeth court on the charges of conspiracy to commit larceny and larceny of a motor vehicle.
Two other accused, who also appeared on the same charges in the Black River Resident Magistrate’s Court, were denied bail.
It is alleged that on September 29, the driver of a Toyota motorcar received a call that his vehicle was being driven towards Cedar Spring piloted by an X-Trail.
The car was reportedly parked at a house in the Bethsalem district in the parish the previous day.
Cedar Spring Citizens were alerted and set up a road block which was cleared by the X-Trail and both vehicles headed towards Spring Mount in St James.
The police in Spring Mount were notified and the men driving the X-Trail were intercepted while the driver of the Toyota motorcar escaped.
The men were apprehended and later charged.
They are 63 year old Racaesta Brown, 32-year-old Dwayne Lewars, 35 year-old Rodrick Satchwell and 34-year old Neville Saunders.
It was discovered that the X-Trail which belongs to Brown’s previous employer was taken from her home without her knowledge while she was overseas.
Lewars and Satchwell were both offered bail in the amount of $100,000.
The bail applications of Saunders and Brown were denied.
