An Albouystown man was on Wednesday charged with taking his ex-girlfriend’s gold jewellery, which he was supposed to safeguard, and converting it to his own use.
It was alleged that Neron Yarris on February 17th, 2018, at Sussex Street, Albouystown, was solely entrusted by Marsha King with a gold chain, valued $100,000, and a finger ring, valued at $24,000, to keep and return at a later date, but fraudulently converted the items to his own use and benefit.
Yarris denied the allegation.
The court heard that the complainant, who shared a relationship with the defendant, was at his house when she took off the chain and finger ring and gave him the items to keep and return to her.
Georgetown Magistrate Judy Latchman placed the man on $100,000 bail and adjourned the matter until April 25th.
