A SEVENTEEN-year-old teen was on Tuesday remanded to prison on a simple larceny charge.
The charge alleged that between February 2 and March 10, 2018 at West Ruimveldt, Randy Smith stole four Hummer shocks valued $280,000 and four Hummer speakers valued $160,000, property of Anthony Singh.
The teenager who works at a wash bay and resides at Norton Street, Lodge denied the charge read to him in court. Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield objected to bail being granted on the grounds of the accused being a flight risk.
The prosecutor said the virtual complainant parked his car in front of a business place and left for a while. After returning he noticed that someone had broken into his car and stolen the items mentioned. The defendant was arrested based on the information police received and he took the ranks to a house where some of the items were recovered.
As the ranks exited the house the defendant made his escape but was recaptured on June 28, 2018.
Prosecutor Mansfield told the court that the file was incomplete and two witness statements were outstanding.
Smith was remanded to prison by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.
