Two men, accused of stealing a total of $862,200 in items from the Guyana Agricultural Union and Khans Auto Sales, were yesterday sentenced to three years in jail, after admitting to the crimes.
Sadeek Mohamed and Ravendra Nervana admitted to breaking and entering Khans Auto Sales, at Hadfield Street, between June 9 and June 11, , and stealing a quantity of items, totaling $780,000.
The duo also admitted to breaking and entering the Guyana Agricultural Union and stealing three paintings, a radio and other items, totaling $82,000.
According to the facts presented by the prosecutor, in both instances, the buildings were secured but sometime later, it was observed that the buildings had been broken into, and items stolen.
Magistrate Leron Daly then sentenced the defendants to three years for each crime. However, the sentences will run concurrently, hence the defendants will only serve three years.
