Two North Sophia, Greater Georgetown residents were fined after they appeared before Magistrate Fabayo Azore at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, charged with stealing a horse cart.
Kevin Bobb, 21; and Ramesh Mangalram, 57, both of North Sophia, were fined $25,000 each. However, failure to pay the fine will result in three weeks imprisonment.
The two admitted that between January 18 and 28, 2018, while in the Bel Air, Georgetown area, they stole a horse cart valued $100,000; property of O’Neil Gentle.
Bobb told the court that he was asked by Mangalram, who is a horse cart operator, to accompany him to move the cart which was at the side of the road.
Bobb stated that he agreed only to later find out that the owner was inquiring about the cart and had made a report to the Police.
However, Bobb stated that it was never his intention to steal anything but promised to return the items since the cart was stripped.
According to the Police Prosecutor, they had since received the four wheels and two axles from the duo.
