A 42-year-old vendor was arraigned before Magistrate Faith McGusty, on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, at the Georgetown magistrates’ court.

Phillip Adams pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that, on September 16, 2019, at Croal Street, Georgetown, he stole $22,000, property of Andrew Blackman.

Police Prosecutor Brummel informed the court that, on the day in question, the defendant snatched the virtual complainant’s money and attempted to escape on a bicycle.

Brummel added that the virtual complainant then kicked the wheel of the bicycle of the accused causing him (Adams) to fall. Adams then told the virtual complainant that ‘is joke I making.’ The matter was reported to the police and Adams was later arrested and charged.
Adams, however told the court that he is a psychiatric patient and needed medication. He also stated that he often made jokes of similar nature with the vendors in the area.
Magistrate McGusty released the man on $22,000 bail and adjourned the matter until September 25, 2019.
