Guyanese remanded in Antigua over stolen car, drugs

Two Guyanese men were among a number of others remanded in Antigua over a stolen car and drugs, according to yesterday’s Antigua Observer.

Eon Saeuars is facing a charge of receiving a stolen car.

Allegations are that three men were caught in a bushy area in Cassada Gardens disassembling a Toyota Corolla. The police were notified and the men were subsequently detained and taken into custody.

Investigations were conducted and based on certain information Saeuars was arrested and charged for receiving. The court was told that Saeuars’ status expires on November 27.

The incident reportedly occurred on April 28. Committal proceedings are set for June 26.

Meanwhile, Dinelle Henry of Guyana was remanded to prison on Wednesday on gun, ammunition and drug possession charges.

Henry and another man are accused of having 7.37 pounds of cannabis in their possession, being concerned in the supply of drugs and possession with intent to transfer the illegal substance.

The duo is also charged with possession of a 9mm firearm and eight rounds of corresponding ammunition.

Committal proceedings for these offences are set for May 14.
