Accused in house breaking remanded

Magistrate Hazel Octave-Hamilton on Thursday remanded a man to jail after he was accused of breaking and entering the home of another man and stealing in excess of $200,000 worth of items.

The Georgetown Magistrates’ Court heard that between February 14 and 15, the accused Paul Richards broke into the dwelling place of Terron Rhananoha.

The man was not required to plead to the indictable charge when it was read to him.

According to the prosecution’s case, Richards is a drug addict. On February 14, Rhananoha secured his premises and on the following day he discovered that a piece of plywood that was situated on the western part of his house had been removed. This prompted him to make checks around his premises and as a result the man discovered that a quantity of articles, estimated to be in excess of $200,000, was missing.

Rhananoha reported the matter to the police station and Richards was detained and charged following investigations.

The matter will be called again on March 6.
