A young Venezuelan national was yesterday remanded to prison after being charged with stealing a boat and an engine.
The first charge alleged that Moses Chapel, 21, on May 31st, 2018, at Moruca, stole a boat engine valued $631,000, which was the property of Orlando Charles.
It was further alleged that Chapel on the same date stole an aluminum boat, valued $300,000, which was the property of Terrence Henry.
Chapel denied both charges.
Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield, who stated that the stolen articles were recovered, objected to bail being granted to Chapel, while stating that the man has only been in Guyana for two months and if he is to be released on bail he could flee the jurisdiction.
Acting Chief Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus remanded Chapel to prison and adjourned the matters until June 11th.
