Guard accused of stealing $3.6M in milk powder

-crime caught on camera, court hears

A security guard was yesterday accused of stealing $3.6M worth of milk powder from the bond he was tasked with guarding, after he was apparently recorded committing the crime.

Rudolph Mangal appeared before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry and denied that he, between May 25 and the following day, at Industrial Site, Ruimveldt broke into a bond and stole 120 bags of milk powder with the aid of his three sons. He was remanded to prison.

It is the police’s case that on the evening of May 25, Mangal took a black plastic bag and placed it over a security camera in the bond. However, unknowing to him, the bag fell off of the camera. On review of the tape, Mangal was seen beckoning his three sons into the bond and raiding it with their assistance.

Prosecutor Bharat Mangru objected to bail and explained that investigations into other charges are being made. According to Mangru, there was another breakage and more charges are likely to be made. One of the sons, he added, was also arrested.

Mangru concluded that the quantity of the items involved as well as the penalty involved might deter Mangal from returning to court.

Mangal was ordered remanded to prison until the case is called again on June 6.
