A miner accused of stealing a motor pump from another was yesterday admitted to bail in the sum of $25,000 when he made his appearance before Magistrate Hazel Octave-Hamilton at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
It is alleged that on August 15 at Georgetown, Qubert Crandon, 33, stole one motor pump valued $60,000, property of Winston Smith.
The resident of 15 D’Urban Backlands, Georgetown denied the simple larceny charge when it was read to him by the magistrate.
No facts of what transpired on the day in question were presented to the court.
The unrepresented accused made a successful application to be admitted to bail.
The prosecution had no objection to the defendant being granted his pre-trial liberty but requested that bail be set in a substantial sum to ensure that he returns to court to stand trial.
Crandon was subsequently granted $25,000 bail and ordered to attend Court One on November 3.
