LOUIE Lewis of West Ruimveldt, who allegedly stole a man’s motorcycle, was, on Friday, granted $200,000 bail by Magistrate Leron Daly when he made an appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
Lewis denied that he, between June 5, 2020 and June 6, 2020, at West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, stole one black Yamaha 1000cc motorcycle registered CF8564, valued at $2,000,000 from Viashawly Kandasammy.
According to the facts, Lewis and Kandasammy are known to each other. On June 5, Kandasammy secured his motorcycle in his yard. When he woke up the following day around 05:30 hours, he discovered his motorcycle missing. A report was immediately made to the East Ruimveldt Police Outpost.
During September 2020, Lewis was standing on the main road at Success, East Coast Demerara when he heard a sound that was similar to the sound his motorcycle makes. He immediately looked and saw Lewis riding his motorcycle at a fast speed rate.
He chased behind Lewis but was unable to catch him. Police, after conducting further investigations arrested Lewis. He was later charged for the offence.
However, the motorcycle was not recovered.
The matter was adjourned until April 9, 2021.
