Accused chain snatcher remanded

A labourer was yesterday remanded to prison after he was charged with snatching a man’s chain.

Peter Waldron, 28, was read the charge by Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman in Georgetown.

The charge stated that Waldron, on May 8th, 2018, at Cornhill Street, Georgetown, stole a $71,000 gold chain from Deon Persaud.

According to Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore, on the day in question, the complainant was waiting on transportation when Waldron, who stood next to him, snatched his chain and fled. Persaud raised an alarm and Waldron was later arrested, Moore added.

Waldron, who gave his address as Lot 6 Norton Street, Lodge, denied the allegation. Moore objected to the accused being granted bail, while citing the fact that he gave the police a different address.

Waldron was subsequently remanded to prison and the matter was adjourned until June 11th.
