Accused in red-handed robbery claims he was paid to move stolen goods
Clive Bobb, allegedly caught red-handed with over $200,000 in stolen goods, yesterday told a city magistrate that he had been hired to transport the items.
But Bobb’s defence and the fact that he had no fixed address apparently inspired little confidence in Magistrate Ann McLennan, who denied him bail and remanded him to prison when he appeared before her yesterday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
It is alleged that the 42-year-old Buxton, East Coast Demerara resident stole a quantity of household items, valued $211,450 in total, between December 1 and December 3 at East Street. The items, reportedly stolen from a mobile food caravan, included a quantity of cutlery valued $50,000, two gas cylinders valued $19,250, two stainless steel pots valued $22,000 and a packet of plastic spoons valued $1,000.
