A fourteen-year-old boy who is accused of attempting to break into Central High School was ordered to be placed in police custody on Friday when he appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Courts.
The teen pleaded not guilty to the charge of attempting to commit a felony, which stated that on March 1 he attempted to break into Central High School to steal items located there.
The prosecution stated that the teen was caught by the security guard and he was handed over to the police who arrested and charged him. He was subsequently placed on station bail and handed over to his father. The prosecution stated that the teen soon ran away from his father’s home and was later caught by the police.
However, the teen stated that he did not run away from home but he was put out of the house by “meh father sweet oman.”
The magistrate subsequently ordered that the teen be kept in police custody and that he appear in court again on March 25.
