A young Albouystown mechanic, who police say was seen riding a stolen motorcycle, was yesterday placed on $150,000 bail by a city court after he denied a theft charge.
Mohammed Edun, 20, pleaded not guilty to the charge that between August 6th and August 7th, at La Penitence Public Road, he stole a $185,000 motorcycle, which was the property of Samuel Scotland.
Edun’s lawyer, Paul Fung-A-Fat, stated that the motorcycle was taken to his client to work on.
However, the police prosecutor’s case is that on August 6th, Scotland parked the motorcycle CH 8651, and on August 7th he made a check for the vehicle and discovered that it was missing. He later saw Edun riding the motorcycle and made a report to the police, the prosecutor noted.
Magistrate Judy Latchman subsequently placed Edun on $150,000 bail and adjourned the case until December 4th.
