a girl was on Thursday placed on ,000 bail after she appeared before Magistrate Faith McGusty at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer a charge of simple larceny.
The 17-year-old, of Sophia, Georgetown, pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on May 17, 2016, at Bel Air Village, Georgetown, she stole one Samsung Galaxy s5 cellular phone, property of Joan Richmond.
According to the presented facts, the defendant and Richmond are known to each other and on the day in question, while in her friend’s bedroom, the defendant asked to borrow her phone to browse the internet, to which Richmond complied.
Richmond left the defendant in the room but upon her return both the young woman and the phone had vanished.
The matter was reported and the defendant arrested. The defendant will return to court on June 17, 2016.
