Two Laing Avenue residents were placed on $100,000 bail each on Friday after denying a simple larceny charge.
David George, 18, and Sean Nedd, 27, were arraigned before Magistrate Judy Latchman in Georgetown and were read a joint charge that stated that on August 15, at Lot 65 East Ruimveldt, they stole a motor engine, valued at $150,000, four shock absorbers, valued at $40,000, and an AC compressor, valued at $60,000. All of the items were the property of Jermaine Davidson.
They both pleaded not guilty.
According to Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves, the victim’s car was involved in an accident at Alexander Street, Kitty. He later parked the vehicle at Lot 65 East Ruimveldt, with all the parts present but observed afterwards that several articles were missing. A report was made to the police, who subsequently arrested George and Nedd.
Magistrate Latchman granted the two accused bail each and the matter was adjourned until September 15.
