According to the prosecutor, the stolen items were not recovered. He noted that the defendants should not be granted bail given the nature and seriousness of the offence.

The file, the prosecutor added, is also incomplete.

Chief Magistrate McLennan later remanded the duo to jail and adjourned the matter to May 8.
