Home News Teen remanded for stealing iPhone 7
Nineteen-year-old Rickford Marcus of Lot 497 South Sophia, Greater Georgetown found himself on Monday arraigned before City Magistrate Judy Latchman on a charge of snatching an iPhone 7.
He denied that, on March 11, 2018 at South Road, Georgetown, he stole the phone, valued at $140,000.
Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore told the court that the teen was seen by the virtual complainant in the Stabroek Market area after he had stolen the phone. Thus the Police were called, he was arrested, and the phone was found in his possession. Accordingly, he was charged with the offence.
Moore based his objection to Marcus being placed on bail on the nature and seriousness of the offence, and Magistrate Latchman upheld his submissions and remanded the teen to prison until March 26, when the case will again be called.
