Porter remanded for allegedly stealing flat-screen televisions
A 48-year-old porter was on Friday remanded to prison for allegedly breaking into a man’s home and stealing two flat-screen televisions.
Roger Bledman, who is no stranger to the courts, appeared before Magistrate Rhondel Weever at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that on November 4, 2021, at Duncan Street, Georgetown, he broke and entered the dwelling home of Amernauth Dukhi and stole two flat-screen televisions valued at $300,000.
The court heard that the victim returned home and noticed his door was pried open, his house ransacked and televisions missing. He made a report to the Prasad Nagar Police Station and an investigation was launched.
The police reviewed footage from the Police Command Centre when they saw Bledman removing the items and placing them into his car; the car was driven by one Sheldon Greene.
The police later arrested and charged Greene, however at the time, Bledman was still at large. He was later arrested by police and was positively pointed out by Greene during a confrontation at the Alberttown Police Station.
The court prosecutor objected to Bledman being released on bail since he has several pending matters before the court. He was remanded until January 28, 2022.
