Weeks after being released from jail, 19-year-old Dequan Parris was on Friday remanded to prison for breaking into a Laing Avenue, Georgetown house and carting off over $400,000 worth of items.
Parris of Middle Road, La Penitence, Georgetown, was hauled before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
The charge states that on July 19, while being in the company of others, he broke into the dwelling house of Adrian Walker and stole a laptop, PlayStation, two cellphones, a watch, and $100,000 in cash.
The Court heard that the items totalled $$400,000. He was remanded, and the matter was adjourned to September 1, 2022.
The Court heard that Parris broke into the man’s house while he was at work. He found his house ransacked and the items missing when he arrived home. As a result, he made a report to Police, and an investigation was launched.
During the probe, the accused’s uncle was caught with one of the cellphones, which he told investigators that he got from his nephew. Subsequently, Parris was arrested, and he reportedly confessed.
