A 20-year-old Stabroek Market vendor, who allegedly stole a woman’s cellphone, was released on $50,000 bail on Friday.

Chad Shivrattan of Diamond, East Bank Demerara, appeared before Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Particulars of the charge alleged that, on November 12, 2023, at Regent Street, Lacytown, Georgetown, he stole a $89, 000 Samsung cellular phone from Elaine Norton.

Shivrattan who was unrepresented told the court that he was innocent and that the charge was trumped-up.

With no objections raised by the prosecutor, Magistrate Daly released Shivrattan on $50,000 bail and adjourned the case to February 2, 2024.
