Blygezight man accused of stealing from neighbour

A young Blygezight man was remanded to prison after denying he stole over $200,000 worth of jewellery from his neighbour.

Shane Bynoe, 19, of 52 Blygezight Gardens made an appearance in a city court yesterday to answer a simple larceny charge. Before Magistrate Ann McLennan, Bynoe pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that he, on May 16 in Blygezight Gardens, Campbellville, stole $220,000 worth of jewellery. The three metal chains he allegedly stole, were valued $120,000, $60,000 and $40,000 were the property of Nandranie Chattergoon.

According to Prosecutor Deniro Jones, the DeSinco Trading employee has no antecedents. However, the prosecutor objected to bail based on the seriousness and prevalence of the offence. Jones also noted that the stolen items were not recovered. Bynoe was also reportedly seen in the house by Chattergoon.

He was remanded to prison until May 30, when he will make his next appearance before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry.
