Three remanded to prison over theft of braids and weaves

Three men, who are accused of stealing $5.4 million worth of braids and weaves, were today remanded to prison after being slapped with break and enter and larceny charges.

Marlon Campblle, a 29-year-old Seaman, Keron Williams, a 26-year-old Seaman, and Trevon Williams, a 29-year-old Security Officer, were hauled before Magistrate Fabayo Azore in the Vigilance Magistrate's Court and pleaded not guilty.

The charge against the trio stated that between June 3 – 4, 2022, at Annandale Public Road, ECD, they break and enter the bond of Junior Hope, a 38-year-old businessman of Non-Pareil, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

The three accused are from Annandale South, ECD, and were remanded to prison until June 23.

MTV News Update reported that the businessman secured his bond on June 3. However, the following day, he discovered the front door of the bond open, the place ransacked, and the items missing.

Acting on information received, a police raid at a businesswoman's house at Fourth Street Annandale, ECD, unearthed a number of the suspected stolen items.

Another raid was conducted at another businesswoman's house at Strathspey Squatting Area, where another set of the suspected stolen items was recovered in a building at the back of her yard.

A total of $4,840,000 worth of items was recovered. The three accused were arrested on June 9.
