Guard accused of stealing gun from security company gets bail

Mark Joseph

A security shift commander was yesterday placed on bail for allegedly stealing a gun and six rounds of ammunition from his work place.

Mark Joseph appeared before the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court yesterday, when he was charged for allegedly stealing a Smith & Wesson .38 revolver valued $109,649 from the Professional Guard Service.

It was also alleged that on that same date, Joseph stole six live rounds of .38 ammunition valued $1,025, from the company.

He pleaded not guilty to the allegations.

The facts stated that on the day in question, the accused, who holds the position of the shift commander at the security company, signed for the weapon but did not return it.

Based on the seriousness of the offences, the police prosecutor objected to bail being granted to him. However, the father of one, who appeared before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman, was placed on a total of $200,000 bail for the two offences and will return to court on November 7th, for his next hearing.
