Man allegedly stole about $16,000 in cell phones and accessories
The prosecution objected to bail for a man accused of stealing just over $18,000 in items when he allegedly trespassed in a man's home.
Prosecutor Sergeant Rudy Pilgrim told the court that the allegations against Gladstone Llewellyn Bridgeman, 38, of Deacons Court, Deacons, St. Michael were of a serious nature and that he already had convictions before the court. Pilgrim also said that the accused disconnected the surveillance camera during the alleged commission of the crime.
Bridgeman was not required to plead to the charge which alleges that he entered The Phone Shop as a trespasser between August 14 and September 14 and stole 46 memory cards, nine cell phones, a screw diver, 27 phone screens, two pairs of earphones,13 SIM cards, eight cell phone charging cables, four cell phone charger blocks, three cell phone batteries, one Bluetooth speaker and $2,130 cash - totaling $18,020 belonging to Muhammed Pandor.
He is also accused of entering the same shop with intent to steal between September 14 and 15. He denied this charge.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick remanded Bridgeman until November 5 although Bridgeman said he was a diabetic and had a pregnant girlfriend at home.
