Construction worker remanded on break and enter charge

A construction worker, accused of burgling a woman’s house, was yesterday remanded to prison after a city court heard that he had been failing to attend hearings in another case in which he is charged.

On January 4, at North East La Penitence, Vindon Nurse, 35, is alleged to have broken into Vanessa Sampson’s house and to have stolen a laptop computer, a digital camera, a haversack and a quantity of groceries, all totalling $270,000.

Nurse, who resides in the North East La Penitence Squatting Area, denied the charge of break and enter and larceny when it was read to him by Magistrate Judy Latchman.

The prosecution objected to Nurse being granted bail, telling the magistrate that he has been failing to attend court in another matter and that there is a likelihood he would not return to stand trial if granted bail.

Nurse was subsequently informed that he would be remanded to prison until September 29, when he is due to appear at Court One before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry.
