Jailed: Fizal Mohammed

Mohammed appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts after he was slapped with two charges.
The first charge stated that on October 11, 2019, at Regent Street, Georgetown, he stole one phone valued $67,000 and $60,000 cash, property of Dindiall Abrahim.
In the second instance, the charge stated that on September 18, 2019, at the said location, he stole a cellular phone valued $250,000 from Davenand Rampan.
The unrepresented man denied the first charge but admitted to the second charge.
According to facts presented by Prosecutor Christopher Morris, the Virtual Compliant, who is a taxi driver, was hired by the defendant to take him to a city bar.
However, upon arrival at the bar, Mohammed asked to use the VC’s phone to make a call and as such, the favour was granted.
Mohamed then exited the car and made good his escape with Rampan’s phone.
The matter reported to the police and Mohammed was later arrested and charged.
Magistrate Daly sentenced Mohammed to four months in prison while he was remanded to prison for the other charge. The case will continue on November 8, 2019.
