Two labourers of Good Hope, East Coast Demerara will spend the next three years behind bars after admitting to two counts of larceny in their arraignment before Georgetown Magistrate Leron Daly on Friday.
The first charge detailed that 57-year-old Sadik Mohammed and 33-year-old Gavindra Nirmal broke and entered the premises of the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union between June 9 and June 11, 2017, and stole therefrom a
quantity of items valued at $82,200, property of GAWU.
The second charge detailed that the men broke and entered the business premises of Khan’s Auto Sales during the said period and carted away motor vehicle spare parts and accessories to a total value of $780,000, property of Mohammed Khan.
The two dishevelled men admitted to the offences, and told the court that the stolen articles were recovered in an attempt to secure a lenient penalty; but Magistrate Daly handed down a three-year sentence for each charge, while declaring that the terms will be served concurrently.
